Official Government of Yukon forms

Government forms are considered official forms if they:

  • request personal, confidential, or medical information from the public or government staff; or
  • must adhere to any of the government's acts, regulations, or other legislation.

These forms must go through the eServices forms design unit to ensure they meet the government's digital service standards. Find out how to request an official form.

Unofficial forms

Any form that is not an official form is called an unofficial form. In these instances, you do not need to work with eServices to develop your form. 

Examples of unofficial forms

  • A template a person will customize. For example, procurement documents.
  • Internal government communications such as contact notes or briefing notes.
  • Spreadsheets, graphs, or charts that facilitate an employees workflow. For example, ledgers or time sheets.
  • Documents with fillable fields that move outward from the government, rather than inward. For example, a generic letter that auto fills recipient information.
