How Soon Will You Be Back?
2007, March 30th:

During the 2007 Canada Winter Games, visitors to Whitehorse were treated to an impressive

array of northern talent in the form of songwriters, carvers and performers. The Games,

which took a pan-northern approach to hosting the event, gave visitors from Canada’s

provinces a chance to take in some of the culture of all three territories.

The 2007 Canada Games Cultural Festival was a key event in showing just how rich Canada’s

territories are culturally. The week long event featured all kinds of artists and performers

from Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut and each and every day of the festival

featured its own special moments that simply cannot be seen anywhere else in Canada. Inuit

and Dene Games were also featured as demonstration sports as spectators from the south of

Canada were wowed by the strength and beauty of these competitions.

Sure the Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse gave visitors a great look at winter in the

north, but if you liked the winter time here, you will love summer north of 60. Hiking,

biking and running trails weave in and out of the mountain landscapes down into deep river

valleys. Mountain lakes and creeks make kayaking and canoeing a formidable activity.

Check out a northern golf experience, take a glacier sightseeing tour by helicopter or drive

the north’s historic highways. There truly is something for everyone to discover in Canada’s

northern territories.

The north is emerging as a destination for tourism and for business as well. Whitehorse,

Yellowknife and Iqaluit are all major centres for government and commerce. Next time you

need an impressive and unique backdrop for your conference or meetings, think about letting

the north host you and your colleagues.

So once again, when will you be returning north of 60?
