Yukon: Yukon tourism organizations and operators are working hard to recover from the impacts of the pandemic and find new approaches to delivering world-class experiences that tell the stories of the territory and what makes it such a special place to visit and make lasting memories.

Today, the Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance, on behalf of the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister of Northern Affairs, Minister for PrairiesCan and Minister for CanNor, and Brendan Hanley, Member of Parliament for the Yukon, announced that the Government of Canada is investing over $560,000 to support four Yukon tourism providers and to help the industry adapt and grow beyond the pandemic. This support aligns with Canadian Tourism Week, an annual celebration of the national tourism industry, its workers, and the captivating attractions that welcome visitors from Canada and abroad.

This funding from the Government of Canada, delivered by CanNor, supports the Yukon’s tourism sector as it adjusts operations to keep visitors safe, offers innovative products and services to visitors, and develops dynamic experiences to welcome back travellers. Initiatives such as these demonstrate the resilience, patience and creativity that has characterized this industry during the pandemic.

This investment demonstrates the Government of Canada’s commitment to supporting the tourism sector throughout the pandemic, keeping safety as a top priority while also ensuring businesses get the support needed to adapt, grow and thrive.
