The Salvation Army came to Canada in 1882 and to the Yukon in 1898. Seven members left Eastern Canada to set up quarter in a log cabin to serve the Klondike gold fields. They abandoned their quarters in 1910, after the heyday of the gold rush, but the Salvation Army returned to Yukon in 1977. Function: The Salvation Army is dedicated to the physical and spiritual reclamation of lost humanity through operating men's hostels, women's shelters and farm colonies.
