Dawson City, Yukon
Co-sponsored and co-developed with:
Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Government
Vuntut Gwitchin Government
First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun
The North Yukon Permafrost Conference is an initiative of the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun (FNNND), Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Government (THG), Vuntut Gwitchin Government (VGG), and the Canadian Permafrost Association (CPA). Held in Dawson City, this unique conference focused on climate change effects in the Traditional Territories of the three partner First Nations including themes of impacts on municipal and linear infrastructure, geohazards, and approaches to adaptation. To allow time for small group discussions and relationship building, the program was unconventional and comprised of keynote presentations, panel discussions, poster presentations, half-day field excursions, and evening public lectures. The event was live-streamed to allow for virtual attendance. The conference program was being developed by a Steering Committee with representatives from the three First Nations and the CPA.
