The PSAC North had the pleasure of having our Pan-Territorial Union School at Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse. This was our first in nine years and 48 members attended from all three territories. Four advanced union courses were offered with northern context. In addition, guest speakers enlightened us on the important issues along with a panel on reconciliation. Participants had a chance to enjoy extra-curricular activities such as cultural dance and story-telling during the reconciliation evening.
