New edition of Surviving in the Yukon released

Whitehorse - The Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition is pleased to announce the release of the 2022 edition of "Surviving in the Yukon: Your tool to free and low- cost goods and services”.

The first “Surviving in Whitehorse” pamphlet was developed as a one-page, double sided publication. Today, “Surviving in the Yukon” has become 40 pages listing services available in Whitehorse and across the Territory. It includes approximately 150 service providers offering over 200 services. There are 25 new entries and the guide is posted on the YAPC website: [url=][/url].

“Since COVID, many services have changed and needs have increased,” says Kristina Craig, Executive Director of YAPC. “Over the years the guide has proven to be a useful tool for people who are new to the Yukon, who may need some sort of help or are service providers wanting to offer assistance.”

The new 2022 edition includes an expanded offering of employment sites including employment specifically for indigenous people and also for veterans. An opioid overdose prevention section has also been included. New this year, the PDF version will be continually monitored and changed as services change with active links to website and FB pages. Adds Craig, “Many thanks to Crown Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) for their financial support and in making this available in English and French”.

The booklet will be distributed during today’s Whitehorse Connects at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre 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 office. Online versions of Surviving in the Yukon are available at [url=][/url].
