Tourism Industry Forum

TIA Yukon is hosting a Tourism Industry Forum via Zoom every Friday at noon.

We are holding a weekly online forum in order to gather valuable input from membership, to provide a conduit between tourism operators and our partners, and to try to provide answers to the questions you have.
