Summer in the Yukon is a 1992 compilation album by Jane Siberry. It was released only in the United Kingdom.

In Canada, the compilation A Collection 1984-1989 was released instead. That album contains some of the same songs, but includes other songs not appearing on Summer in the Yukon.

Conversely, Summer in the Yukon includes tracks not appearing on the Canadian compilation, including two tracks from Siberry's 1981 self-titled debut and her most famous song, "Calling All Angels". That song, a duet with k.d. lang which was recorded for the soundtrack to Wim Wenders' Until the End of the World, had not yet been included on an album of new material by Siberry. It subsequently appeared on her 1993 album When I Was a Boy, and later appeared on a second film soundtrack, Pay It Forward. The version of "The Life Is The Red Wagon" is the single version, whereas A Collection 1984-1989 features the more stripped-down album version.
