Our role as a government is to serve the public, so we need our writing to be clear and easy to understand and have a friendly, inclusive and open style. We call this our tone of voice.

There are 3 main ways we create our tone of voice. We use:

  1. plain language;
  2. inclusive language; and
  3. a consistent style.

When to use the government's tone of voice

Use the government's tone of voice for all:

  • content published on Government of Yukon websites;
  • public communications materials; and
  • internal government documents.
