Could it be one of the Challengers (VIP configuration) that is operated by the government? Much smaller than a Fokker 100, but I can't think of another jet that would frequently use YGK since Air Georgian and Jazz both use turboprops.
I don't believe either of Nav Canada's two CRJs are considered Challenger 850s. Both were delivered as CRJs to Atlantic Coast Airlines and then operated for defunct Independence Air before being acquired by Nav Canada.
A web photo site is hardly an official source. The Transport Canada registration database just shows both aircraft as CL-600-2B19 which covers the CRJ100 (the CRJ200 is only a marketing designation, there's no separate type certificate).
