Yukon Federal Council (2010-2011)

Development of a Narrative Presentation of Territorial Statistics

Each of Canada’s Provinces and Territories is home to a body known as “Federal Councils”. These Councils are made up of key senior officials for the federal departments and agencies in each region. Each of these Councils is tasked with acting as an overarching federal information sharing and policy development organization. Additionally, the Councils regularly liaise with hundreds of regional managers and staffers, who provide support to their respective Councils though their involvement with Council Sub-committees on a wide range of management and policy issues.

Within the Yukon, the Yukon Federal Council has a key role in the development and implementation of processes and policies related to the dissemination of information and the coordination of responses to issues of concern. The Yukon Federal Council also promotes integrated and improved service delivery, and co-operation with other jurisdictions.

The key objective of this project is the development of a dynamic and accessible presentation of pan-territorial statistics over the past 10 years, illustrating historical and current statistical data in a manner that presents factual information, while also acting as a compelling narrative device.

The genesis for this lies in the new trend of political and academic figures to make use of presentations which move far beyond the staid PowerPoint Presentation model of “a summary on a slide”, but rather acts in an interactive, compelling and entertaining manner. The Yukon Federal Council requires this comparative data to be focused on statistical factors related to the following issues:

1)      Economic Issues

2)      Social Issues

3)      Demographic Issues

4)      Health Issues

DPRA has carried out statistical research and analysis for a vast number of Federal, Territorial and private sector clients including: Environment Canada, Health Canada’s First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB), Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Justice Canada, numerous departments of the Government of the Northwest Territories, the NWT legislative Assembly, the Yukon Department of Human Resources, Victoria Gold, NWT Chamber of Mines, Agnico-Eagle Mines and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc.
