This year, YEU is asking people to join them in building a Mountain of Mac. This food is often in short supply at the Whitehorse Food Bank and YEU will be donating $1,000.00 of Mac & Cheese to help address this need. You can join YEU in this effort by:
- Contacting YEU and making a Mac Pledge (call 867-667-2331 or email email@example.com)
- Bring your Mac to Shipyards Park on September 4 and add it to the mountain!
- Donate directly to Whitehorse Food Bank
Please share this free event (via Facebook) with your family, friends and community. Come for the food, for the community and for the massive Mountain of Mac. We hope to see you there on September 4!

The PSAC North Racially Visible Committee and the Yukon Federation of Labour and its affiliates are pleased to announce the first labour-organised Canadian Multiculturalism Day Celebration in Yukon and would like to invite the Yukon community to come and enjoy the afternoon at Shipyards park on Sunday, June 26 from 2- 5 pm.
“This is an opportunity for our community to get to see and hear about some the rich cultural diversity of Yukon, “says YFL President Vikki Quocksister. “There will be some presentations, music, some short talks and dance, all of which showcase Canada’s traditions both from our past and for our future.” The event will have some of Yukon’s food trucks and traditional foods for purchase.
Unions have long supported anti-racism and human rights with many workers and community members having a rich ethnic heritage. President for the PSAC North Racially Visible Committee Derek Yap says, “we are honoured and happy to be able to show both our community and our union members how Canada is changing in its diversity and to share information about some of these different cultures to our neighbours and friends.”
Yukon’s Multiculturalism Day will be celebrated in Shipyards Park on Sunday, June 26th from 2 until 5PM.
