Talking Together: A stronger dialogue between you and your governments

The Government of Yukon and the City of Whitehorse have partnered to improve the way we work with Yukoners. Your voice is important. We know we don’t always get public engagement right, and we want to get better.

Public engagement is all about governing together and building trust. What does a meaningful engagement with government look like to you? We would like to find out by talking together with you, the public.

The Government of Yukon and the City of Whitehorse have partnered because we have a shared interest in working better with Yukoners.


What can you expect from Talking Together?

This conversation kicks off on January 9 and runs until February 26. We’re hosting this conversation at other public engagement meetings and community events so that you can make the most of your time with us.


Why is this conversation happening now?

We want to build a relationship with Yukoners. Talking together means governments can make better decisions that will result in healthier, more productive communities.

If you take the time to talk with us, we promise to listen and to use the information to become more accountable, transparent and responsive to you. Talking together will also help us improve how we engage. We want it to be as easy for you as possible.


How will this conversation continue?

Learning how to talk, work and make decisions together is a journey. We’re starting the conversation now because we want the public to have meaningful opportunities to shape how governments make decisions. By having this conversation, we hope governments and citizens build trust as they talk together in the future.
