Heritage Day

Each year, Yukoners celebrate Heritage Day on the Friday before the last Sunday in February. This ties into the Canada-wide celebration of Heritage Week, running February 20-26, 2017, for which the National Trust of Canada selects a theme.

On February 24th, 2017, Yukoners are encouraged to celebrate this year's theme of My Canada!, which is designed to inspire Canadians to embrace, explore and enjoy their own heritage places and spaces across the country.

"In 2017, celebrate your roots and the places that tell your story," said the National Trust of Canada's Executive Director, Natalie Bull. "This milestone anniversary is a great time to recognize the places that matter in connecting each of us to Canada's past and future."

Use the hashtag #mycanadais to tell your story, and how each of us sees ourselves reflected in the mosaic that is Canada.


Celebrate Heritage Day with our annual colouring & trivia contest!
