The Yukon Heritage Symposium is an annual gathering for the Yukon heritage community.

The Symposium provides an opportunity to meet and connect with others actively involved in the heritage sector across the Territory--from those working in museums and cultural centres, to heritage planners, historians and others. It's a chance to meet new colleagues and catch up with old ones, be inspired by new ideas and trends from outside of the Territory, and share knowledge and best practices on what works in the Yukon.

Heritage practitioners face significant and varied challenges across the Territory. Every day, Yukoners are finding innovative, creative and practical solutions to these issues. The Yukon Heritage Symposium is structured to encourage peer exchange on a number of topics and current issues of interest to the Yukon heritage community. By strengthening our community ties and drawing from best practices and lessons learned, the Yukon heritage community can work together to continue to inspire and share a passion for Yukon heritage.

Over fifty members of the Yukon heritage community from across the Territory attended our last Symposium in 2015. A big thank you to all our participants!
