Yellowknife’s Yvonne Careen, the Director General of the Northwest Territories French School Board, has been named to an annual list of the 10 most influential people in the Canadian Francophonie.

She was chosen by French-language media group Francopresse for their 2018 influential people outside of Quebec list alongside nine others from across the nation.

The list states that after 15 years of judicial battles, Careen has succeeded in obtaining a brand new gymnasium for the Allain St-Cyr School in Yellowknife, a victory whose symbol may also resonate in other provinces seeking new school facilities.
