Yukon fur real

Yukon fur real is a “buy-local” movement supported by the Yukon Trappers Association and the North Yukon Renewable Resources Council. It’s main event is unfurled, a fur celebration and marketplace held in Whitehorse in March 2018.

Vision

“I’m fur real” is the shared feeling of locals who are aware of and support Yukon’s wild fur industry and fur products. It celebrates our small local industry that sustains trappers on the land and makers with their craft.

Mandate

  • Share stories of Yukon trappers and crafters in our communities
  • Celebrate the rich history and sustainable future of Yukon’s fur industry
  • Increase awareness of current approaches to trapping and the rules that govern this activity in Yukon
  • Show why our small, local industry provides an ethical and sustainable choice when it comes to purchasing fur products.
