CIB Tidiness Award 

We were the proud recipient of the 2015 CIB Tidiness Award, presented in Kamloops at the Symposium in October 2015.

This particular prize was awarded to the City in recognition of its numerous programs which encourage community engagement and promote environmental stewardship and cleanliness. These initiatives include:

Budding Artists Contest

We would like to thank residents and businesses for their continued efforts to make Whitehorse a beautiful city by enhancing the appearance of their properties, adding floral displays such as planter boxes and hanging baskets.

We would also like to invite neighbourhood associations to bring forward initiatives and projects in 2017 that could help improve the aesthetics of their areas such as streets, signs and parks.
