The Order of Polaris is given out by the government of Canada's Yukon Territory for:
* great service to the territory
* service to the people of the territory
* unique culture

The Order of Polaris was created by the Government of the Yukon Territory in 1973, to honour members of the Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame, especially those who flew over the Yukon. The medal and scroll were presented by the Commissioner of the Yukon Territory (or designate) at a ceremony in Edmonton.


The award is a simple, circular, silver medal. The obverse has a symbolic representation of the Polar star above and flanked by simulated aerial exhaust trails or stylized wings. Around the upper half of the medal are the words "Order of Polaris" preceded and followed by a maple leaf.

The reverse on the first series of medals is blank. The second series of medals have the coat of arms for the Yukon Territories with the word "YUKON" above it.

The ribbon has equal stripes of the colours of the Yukon Territory - green, white and blue. For those recipients who actually flew over the territory during their aviation careers, a maple leaf bar, similar to that worn on the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal 1939-45, is attached to the medal ribbon.

Any Canadian citizen who is a current or former resident of Yukon is eligible for nomination.
