Into the Wilderness: My Co-op experience with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Yukon Region

Communication, Art and Technology

The Yukon was always a mystery to me; something I didn’t know very much about. I

was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and have never been up North before. I was

unsure what to expect for my four month long co-op term with INAC, let alone what

Whitehorse had in store for me. But a place that held beautiful blue lakes and rivers,

and breathtaking mountaintop views, I could not have asked for a better place to spend

my fifth co-op term.
