Premier Ranj Pillai and Minister of Education Jeanie MacLean have issued the following statement:

“On behalf of the Government of Yukon, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all those starting or continuing their studies at Yukon University this year.

“With campuses across many beautiful traditional territories of Yukon First Nations, Yukon University offers high quality opportunities for students to learn, grow and develop new skills.

“Whether this is your first time in the Yukon, or you have lived here your entire life, we hope you feel inspired by the unique community you have joined and that you enjoy your studies.
