About YKTrader Classifieds
Our idea to offer online classifieds was born in 1998 in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. A rough prototype website was built but because of the lack of available time and financing the idea was not fully developed and made live until 2005.
|2005||The first classifieds site (YKTrader.com) was launched in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The site was quickly adopted by the great people of Yellowknife.|
|2007||We launched a paper version of the classifieds (YKTrader Classifieds) to compliment the website.|
|2008||We launched a paper version of the community events and announcements (YKTrader Break Time) to compliment the website and classifieds paper.|
|2009||We relocated the head office from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories to Red Deer, Alberta to pursue expanding our Classifieds website and papers to Alberta.|
|2012||We re-launched Yellowknife's YKTrader.com with a completely new website and launched our Red Deer, Alberta version of our classifieds RedDeerTrader.com.|
