Heritage Day

Each year, Yukoners celebrate Heritage Day on the Friday before the last Sunday in February. This ties into the Canada-wide celebration of Heritage Week, for which the National Trust of Canada selects a theme. YHMA runs an annual colouring and trivia contest for Heritage Day, inspired by the year's theme.

This year's theme is "Heritage Stands the Test of Time." You can participate in the contest by downloading the colouring page and trivia questions here:
