Yukon Window Tint Laws

Canada window tint laws are different in each province, and this article provides all relevant information about window tinting laws in Yukon.

Yukon window tint laws overview:

  • Windshield: 70% VLT allowed.
  • Front side windows: 70% VLT allowed.
  • Back side windows: Any darkness allowed.
  • Rear window: 70% VLT allowed.

Yukon province has no relevant regulations which specifically permit or restrict window tinting.

Only relevant regulations concerning vehicle windows relate to obscured windows (Motor Vehicles Act section 190), where no person shall drive a vehicle if the view is obscured in any way to make driving hazardous or dangerous.

Instead we have Yukon RCMP’s statement clarifying Yukon tint laws.

According to the RCMP front and back windshields and front side windows can have 30% tint.

Presumably this means 70% VLT as 30% would not be in line with other Canadian province and territories’ laws.

Back side windows are typically not required for driver visibility and RCMP makes no mention of VLT percentage for them.

Based on this we believe any darkness level should be safe on these windows.

Penalties for violating obscured windshield regulations is punishable by a fine up to $500.

Other Yukon tint laws:

  • Side mirrors: Dual exterior side mirrors required if view of rear window is obstructed or interfered with in any manner.
