To make the most of your stay in Whitehorse
Whitehorse, September 22, 2015 - The Association franco-yukonnaise is pleased to announce the publication of a new tourist information guide in French featuring a range of activities and attractions in Whitehorse, with something for everyone, including history and heritage, leisure and recreation, excursions and adventures, and arts and entertainment.
"The guide is especially designed to encourage business travellers to add a day or two to their stay to make the most of it. It will also appeal to tourists and residents who want to discover everything Whitehorse and the surrounding area have to offer," noted Angélique Bernard, President of the Association franco-yukonnaise.
Users will be able to tell at a glance whether activities and attractions are accessible by foot from downtown Whitehorse or by car, whether they are seasonal or year-round, and whether they are free or not. Venues that offer service in French, either in person or in the form of written material, are clearly identified.
"This guide promotes the many cultural activities and tourist attractions we have in Whitehorse," said Mayor Dan Curtis. "Thank you to AFY for their continued commitment to promoting our city to bilingual and French speaking visitors."
"The guide is a wonderful initiative by the Association franco-yukonnaise in line with its efforts to promote French tourism in Yukon," said Elaine Taylor, Minister of Tourism and Culture, and Minister responsible for the French Language Services Directorate.
The guide is available at the Visitor Information Centres in Whitehorse, Watson Lake and Dawson City, as well as at the Centre de la francophonie in Whitehorse. An electronic version is also available on-line at
