The time commitment’s small, but the outcome can change an entire career! Don’t miss this opportunity to make connections, offer professional guidance, share knowledge and experiences, and build a stronger community.

In the program, seasoned members are matched with those who are newer to the field and are seeking professional guidance. Matches are made based on the results of our short survey, with the goal of optimizing the mentor/mentee partnerships.

Mentors and mentees are matched every six months using the term schedule below. To participate, simply read the code of conduct and fill out the survey. We will connect you to your mentor or mentee at the beginning of the next term. Once you are matched and the term starts, you will receive an email introduction to start connecting right away.

Joining our team of archivists here in the North are….

  1. Carrey Isaak:

    • Bio: Carey Isaak, graduate of the University of Manitoba Archival Studies program has worked in various archival/heritage institutes across Western Canada for the last twenty years. He is currently working for the Council of Yukon First Nations (CYFN) on a one year project to describe and re-house its vast and unique collection of archival material.

    Carrey is working on the CYFN fonds with Peggy D’Orsay, Donna Darbyshire and Kaylin Horassi.

  2. Nancy Vanden-Eykel:

    • Bio: When people ask me where I’m from, I usually respond by asking originally or most recently?  For the first time in almost 20 years, the answer to those two questions is the same.  I grew up in New Westminster, BC and have worked all over Canada, including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Alberta, Ontario and then I headed back to BC for four months before being hired as the Archivist at CAFN.  I am thrilled to add the Yukon Territory to my list of places I’ve lived and being able to put my skills and training to work for the Heritage, Lands and Resources department at CAFN delights me.  One of the things my strange and twisty life has provided me is a wide variety of skills and experiences.  In addition to holding a Masters in Library and Information Sciences from Western University, I also hold a Bachelors in English Literature from Ambrose University and a Diploma in Broadcast Communications – Radio from British Columbia Institute of Technology.  I’m very grateful for the opportunity to live and work in Haines Junction, serving CAFN as Archivist and providing information management support.

    Nancy will be working at the Da Ku Cultural Centre on CAFN Archives and Records Management for 9 months.

  3. Angela Code: Yukon Native Language Centre

    • Bio: I am a member of the Sayisi Dene First Nation. I am originally from Tadoule Lake, MB but have lived in Yukon for many years. I am passionate about Indigenous language and culture revitalization. I am excited about starting this new job and am excited for all the amazing, creative projects that will come out of this work.

En collaboration avec son Comité consultatif canadien de la Mémoire du monde, la Commission canadienne pour l’UNESCO (CCUNESCO) est heureuse de lancer le deuxième Appel à candidatures pour le Registre de la Mémoire du monde du Canada. Ce Registre reconnait l’importance du patrimoine documentaire relié au Canada et ses Peuples, et est un des vecteurs du Programme Mémoire du monde de l’UNESCO, qui a pour but de préserver le patrimoine documentaire et d’en permettre l’accès afin d’incarner la mémoire de l’humanité.

Alors que l’UNESCO a été désignée responsable de l’Année internationale des langues autochtones en 2019,  elle vise à attirer l’attention sur l’urgence de sensibiliser les gens aux langues autochtones et de préserver, de maintenir et de revitaliser ces dernières. Par conséquent, le Comité aimerait mettre de l’emphase sur ce sujet pour les propositions à venir. Le Comité encourage également les propositions portant sur tout autre patrimoine documentaire.

Nous invitons tous les individus, les institutions privées et publiques ainsi que les organisations et les communautés à consulter le site Web de la CCUNESCO pour toute information sur le processus de nomination. La date limite pour les déclarations d’intérêt est le 1 mars 2019.
