North Yukon Permafrost Conference                  


Dawson City, Yukon
21-26 August 2022


The North Yukon Permafrost Conference is an initiative of the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun (FNNND), Tr'ondëk Hwëtch'in First Nation (THFN), Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation (VGFN), and the Canadian Permafrost Association (CPA). Held in Dawson City, Yukon, this unique conference will focus 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 is unconventional and comprised of keynote presentations, panel discussions, poster presentations, half-day field excursions, and evening public lectures. The event will be live-streamed to allow for virtual attendance. The conference program is being developed by a Steering Committee with representatives from the three First Nations and the CPA.
