Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre, Whitehorse, Yukon
Living Together Whitehorse was attended by over 80 people, including community and faith leaders, academics and diversity champions. The Symposium was an opportunity for people from diverse communities to get to know more about each other, and a space to listen, share and reflect.
Living Together symposia proceedings, from nine events across Canada, will be an integral part of the CRRF’s 2017 sesquicentennial presentation.
