The Tourism Industry Association Yukon offers funding for individuals and career support for students
TIAY offers two different programs of support:
1. The Yukon Tourism Training Fund (YTTF) is designed for individuals applying for financial support for tourism related training.
The main purpose of the YTTF is to provide tourism training that is responsive to industry and employee training needs. The fund contributes to achieving a more qualified Yukon tourism labour market that can support an increasingly competitive industry.
2. Yukon Elevate Tourism Program (ELEVATE) NOW CLOSED
ELEVATE is TIA Yukon’s response to COVID-19 effects on the tourism sector through a unique partnership between TIA Yukon, Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Yukon University, the Wilderness Tourism Association of Yukon and the Yukon First Nations Culture and Tourism Association. The program is funded by the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency with support from the Government of Yukon’s Department of Tourism and Culture.
