2015 Yukon Heritage Awards

Monday, January 25, 2016

6-8pm, Tuesday, February 16, 2016 | Yukon Archives (400 College Drive, Whitehorse)

The 32nd annual Yukon Heritage Awards will be held in conjunction with a celebration of Heritage Day on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at the Yukon Archives.

Please join us to recognize deserving recipients and celebrate this year's Heritage Day theme: Distinctive Destinations: Experience Historic Places

Canada is rich in historic sites, special places and events that tell our story and delight visitors from near and far. Our distinctive destinations are as varied as Canadians themselves: Aboriginal Pow Wows, music halls, traditional fishing villages, historic lighthouses, old stone mills, prairie festivals and botanical gardens.

Heritage tourism offers adventure, storied history, vibrant culture and stunning landscapes for every age group and interest: from trendy ’hoods to rural farmsteads, kid-friendly forts to sacred landmarks, and country inns to grand hotels.

Whether travelling across town or cross-country, Canada’s distinctive destinations are definitely worth the trip!
