Lessons from the Yukon for Northern Ontario? First Nations, Tourism and Regional Economic Development
January 26, 2017 | Justin Ferbey
What can Northern Ontario learn from a community 4,500 kilometres away? A new commentary from Northern Policy Institute shares the challenges and successes of Carcross/Tagish First Nation (CTFN), a small community in the Yukon Territory as it makes efforts to grow a sustainable and inclusive economy.
The commentary, Lessons from the Yukon for Northern Ontario: First Nations, Tourism and Regional Economic Development was transcribed from a presentation that Justin Ferbey gave on January 7, 2016 at the Goring Family Lecture Series on Sustainable Northern Economic Development in Sudbury, ON. The purpose of the talk, was to share lessons learned and inspire new ideas that could translate to First Nation communities in Northern Ontario.
