To assist participants in finding accommodations in Whitehorse, Yukon, we have created a private housing registry. This bulletin board has options from local homeowners who wish to rent their homes and empty rooms or billet visitors. It serves as a link between homeowners and orienteering participants. The NAOC Organizing Committee and Yukon Orienteering Association bear no responsibility for rental arrangements or issues between orienteering participants and owners.
