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.
