E- NGO Centre for Yukon
In 2010, VY conducted a research project in partnership with Yukon Government (Community Development Fund) to look at various ways to help Yukon non-profit organizations in Whitehorse and the communities to sustain their services and maximize human, financial and fixed capital resources such as office space.
Horn and Associates was contracted to conduct a feasibility study. Please click on this link to see the results of the research: http://volunteeryukon.ca/spip.php?article78
