Yukon Club was A&P's (The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Co. Ltd.) in house brand. They expanded into Canada in 1927 and by 1930 had 200 stores, most of them in Ontario and Quebec. I know they had one A&P in Winnipeg Manitoba but not sure if the other three western provinces had any locations.
My understanding is they went bankrupt in 2015,...it was a pretty interesting company with a long and storied history.

One flavor that was available but not shown in this ad was grape

These two beauties just came in this week for me.

And here are the cans I have already, so the two above are nice additions

I've found a number of different Yukon Club cans the last couple of years

last fall I found 2 low calorie ginger ale cans in a small dump in the woods here . had planned to try and clean them up a bit but haven't done that yet . still a fair bit of colour on them

there was a couple of those A & P stores in my area , there used to be a small one downtown ( now closed ) and another at the mall ( now a metro ) , also another in nearby town that is now a ( food basics ) so likely a lot of Yukon club cans around Ontario

I found one of those flat top Kola's a couple weeks ago but its rusted a bit

also have some 70's era metal Yukon club cans , found a dump a couple years ago that had several cola and tonic water cans so tried save a couple of the better ones , also have a ginger ale . not sure if I've found any other flavours but if I did they were too damaged to keep

I forgot I had some of the crimped oz/ml cans. I like the ginger ale and tonic you have, and yes the colour is strong on those low cal ginger ales.
Crazy but I have not added any cans from this generation since 2014. A couple of these have the D pull ring in place and were bottom opened. I also like the fact these have no bar code.
