New edition of Surviving in Yukon released April 12, 2016

The Yukon Anti Poverty Coalition is pleased to announce the release of the 2016 edition of our "Surviving in Yukon booklet. The booklet shows where to find low-cost or free services in Yukon. It was ten years ago that the first Surviving in Whitehorse pamphlet was developed as a one page, double sided publication. Today, Surviving in Yukon has become a comprehensive listing of services available in Whitehorse and communities complete with maps and listings for youth as well. The 2016 edition of Surviving in Yukon was produced in partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada as a way to help all Yukoners have better access to the services and supplies that they need. The new 2016 edition includes new business and service listings, updated contact information, and will be available online as well as in hard copy. Thanks to the support of INAC, Surviving in Yukon is available in English and French. The booklet will be distributed during tomorrow’s Whitehorse "Point-in-Time" Homelessness Count, and will also be made available through many organizations in Whitehorse and in communities throughout the Yukon. Copies are also available through the Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition at their offices – 302 Strickland Street.
