Facilitating vibrant local retail, service and entertainment sectors is a priority of the City of Whitehorse, as expressed through the Official Community Plan, Downtown Plan, Strategic Sustainability Plan, and Community Economic Development Strategy.
In 2006, the City undertook a Retail Market Strategy to assess the status of Whitehorse’s retail/service sector, identify challenges and opportunities, and formulate strategies to strengthen this sector. Many market and community factors have changed since that time; therefore the City is updating the strategy for 2016 and also including an increased focus on entertainment opportunities.
