Quebec-Yukon Intergovernmental Cooperation Program

The Intergovernmental Cooperation Program stems from the Agreement for Cooperation and Exchange between the Government of Yukon and the Government of Quebec with Respect to the Francophonie, signed on March 31, 2016.

Each party has committed to investing $25,000 annually over five years, for a total of $250,000, to promote partnerships and exchanges between Francophones in Yukon and Quebec. We are therefore spending $50,000 annually to promote the vitality of the French-speaking community across Yukon.
