Cando drew attention to Whitehorse, Yukon at the 23rd Annual National Conference & Annual General Meeting (AGM) where close to 300 delegates were treated to a variety of workshops, presentations and panel discussions delivered by over 50 speakers. 

We would like to say a very special thank you to our delegates, stakeholders, presenters and conference co-hosts: dana Naye Ventures, Kwanlin Dun First Nation, Ta'an Kwach'an Council and Council of Yukon First Nations for helping us make this year's conference a success.   

Cando would also like to thank the Conference Committee & Yukon Regional Working Group as we could not have organized this year's Annual National Conference & AGM without their commendable effort.
