The sculptures are small replicas of the monuments unveiled in Olympic Plaza in Calgary and on Parliament Hill. This tour is made possible through a partnership of the Famous 5 Foundation, the Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada, the Speakers of the Legislatures and the Ministers responsible for the Status of Women. The exhibit will be in the foyer of the government’s main administration building from September 6 to October 4. Frances Wright, President and CEO of the Famous 5 Foundation, will be on hand for the opening on Thursday, September 6 from noon to 2 p.m.

The first area the NAO and PDG have selected for study is ‘Tracking the Progress of Major Projects’, which should be available later this year. WHITEHORSE – Seven Yukon communities will share a total of $158,517 under the latest round of Project Yukon approvals.
These projects will improve the public spaces and places where people live and visit, One of the recipients is the Keno City Community Club, which will receive $18,657 toward a visitors’ orientation building and viewing platforms. The building will house photos and provide information on plant and wildlife species of the region. Tourism is becoming an important part of economic diversification for our area, We want to inform the public about our plant and wilderness viewing opportunities. We also want to balance that with education on how to prevent disturbance to or destruction of the fragile habitat and wildlife populations on Keno Hill.
The Department Tax Depreciation Schedule Calculator of Renewable Resources is funding $10,000 towards the project, while the Club is contributing $11,000 in equipment, volunteer time and in-kind contributions. Project Yukon is a means to help promote the growth of Yukon people and communities, Projects that support recreation, sport and active living are important catalysts that enhance economic development within our communities and throughout the territory.
