Government of Yukon seeks feedback on COVID-19 impacts to non-profit societies

As part of its response to the impacts of COVID-19, the Government of Yukon is conducting a survey of Yukon’s non-profit societies to gain a better understanding of economic and operational pressures related to the pandemic.

Yukon non-profit organizations deliver a wide range of critical services and programs throughout the territory. Understanding the current impacts on these organizations is a key step in ensuring the community is supported as the territory enters its COVID-19 recovery phase.

Developed with the Volunteer Bénévoles Yukon Society, the Yukon Nonprofit Advisory Council and the Yukon Bureau of Statistics, the online survey will be promoted directly to Yukon non-profit societies throughout the month of September.

A What We Heard document reporting the results of the survey will be released later this year.

For more information, or to obtain a copy of the survey, societies are encouraged to contact the Yukon Bureau of Statistics. Email ygsurvey@gov.yk.ca or call 867-667-5640, toll free 1-800-661-0406 extension 5640.
