New edition of Surviving in Yukon released

Whitehorse — The Yukon Anti Poverty Coalition is pleased to announce the release of the 2019 edition of "Surviving in Yukon: Your guide to free and low cost goods and services.”

It was 23 years ago that the first Surviving in Whitehorse pamphlet was developed as a one page, double-sided publication. Today, “Surviving in Yukon” has grown into a 31-page booklet listing services available in Whitehorse and across the territory.

“We’re pleased to have this next edition out the door and into people’s hands,” says Executive Director Kristina Craig. “The guide is very popular and is a necessity for those who rely on these services. It would not have come together without support from a number of volunteers.”

The 2019 edition of Surviving in Yukon was produced with support from Crown Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) as a way to help all Yukoners have better access to the services and supplies that they need. The new 2019 edition includes over 70 service listings, updated contact information, a free food calendar and will be available online as well as in hard copy. Thanks to CIRNAC, it will soon be available in French.

The booklet will be distributed starting at 12:15 pm on Friday, March 8th when service providers and individuals are invited to come to 509 Hanson to pick up copies. The Yukon Anti- Poverty Coalition is also working with HelpSeeker, a free app where service providers will be able to keep their information current in real time.
