Funding

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. The Giovanni Castellarin Scholarship is designed to assist Yukoners who are entering post-secondary education in the field of tourism or related studies.

The GCS was established in 2002, in memory of Giovanni Castellarin, long time champion of tourism for the Klondike and the Yukon. Two $1000 scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants.
