2020 Yukon Tourism Awards of Excellence – Postponed

June 10, 2020 – Due to the recent situation that businesses and operators find themselves in and the necessary adaptation that it requires, the TIA team & board has decided to postpone the 2020 Tourism Awards of Excellence to a later time this year. Stay tuned for a date to be announced.

The Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon’s Tourism Awards of Excellence were established to recognize and foster excellence in the Yukon’s tourism industry. The awards allow the industry to recognize those people, places, organizations and events that have gone above and beyond to offer superior tourism experiences to travelers in Yukon.
