On January 1, a large crowd helped me welcome the New Year with the annual Commissioner's New Year's Levee. Together, we also marked the beginning of Canada’s 150th birthday. Canada 150 is an opportunity to reflect on our country’s journey and our vision for Canada’s future. As events celebrating our sesquicentennial take place across Canada and here in Yukon, I encourage you to connect with your fellow Canadians. We have much to be proud of, and much further to go.

This month marks the beginning of my last year as Commissioner of Yukon and I am looking forward to a very busy year. This spring I plan to visit each Yukon community and speak with the children of Yukon about what being Canadian means to them. We will be celebrating this theme all year with our annual events. Check out the Office of the Commissioner’s Facebook page for information about upcoming events. I certainly hope to see all of you there.

Happy New Year and best wishes to all Yukoners.
