Our goal is to inspire a universal passion for Yukon history. The Association was established in 1977 by a group of concerned and passionate individuals to create a united voice for understanding and promoting heritage and history in the Yukon. We keep appraised of heritage issues and advocate on behalf of the eighteen museums and cultural centres around the territory.
We continue to build a learning environment for history and culture and the development of skills and best practices. We share knowledge with the Yukon heritage community and support each other in protection and preservation projects. Most of our activities are collaborations and partnerships. Many of our events and programs honour those in the heritage sector that are dedicated to our vision.
