Ushiku Student Exchange Postponed
Whitehorse – The City of Whitehorse is disappointed to postpone this year’s student exchange with our sister city, Ushiku, Japan, as a result of the ongoing global pandemic.
As always, the City will proudly fly Ushiku’s flag on the fourth Monday of June, in recognition of the strong relationship between our communities over the past 37 years.
The Sister City Exchange Program with Ushiku began in 1985, and provides opportunities for Whitehorse student ambassadors and adult chaperones to visit Ushiku. In turn, families in Whitehorse host Japanese students every other year as the program alternates.
We hope to see you in 2023!
