Governor General Mary Simon wrapped up a three-day visit to Yukon in her first official visit to the territory.

The visit kicked off in a simple but pomp ceremony on Sunday, where around two dozen people gathered in Whitehorse to welcome Simon and her husband Whit Fraser.

Several dignitaries, government officials and First Nations representatives met Simon at Taylor House, the official residence of the Commissioner of Yukon.

“It’s a wonderful trip and I’ve met a lot of people that I know,” Simon told APTN News.

“I feel like there’s a lot of activity going on in the Yukon, and it seems all very progressive in terms of what the territory is doing.”

During the reception at Taylor House, Simon formally met with Commissioner of Yukon, Angelique Bernard, and inspected the guard of honor, a platoon from the Canadian Rangers.
