Yukon College to offer Yukon First Nations 101 to local businesses, government

February 10, 2016

Yukon College and the Council of Yukon First Nations have partnered on the creation of the new Yukon First Nations 101 online course. The four-hour course is designed for service providers, businesses, and government employees who wish to better understand and work with Yukon First Nations. The course program will cover six key aspects: history, heritage and culture, governance, residential schools, contemporary topics, and worldviews. The course will be delivered by the college’s Northern Institute for Social Justice and is modelled on one developed for the college’s core competencyrequirement for students and faculty. Northwestel is the first corporate partner to sign up for the new course. Yukon College | CBC
