Created in recognition of the need to preserve Yukon’s many privately owned historic properties, this funding program preserves our heritage by making technical and financial assistance available to those who wish to undertake preservation, restoration, development and/or interpretation of their historic properties.

This program makes available contributions on a matching basis each year to applicants who own sites that are deemed historically significant, and whose plans for preservation of those sites are in accordance with the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada.

The application deadline is March 1, 5:00 p.m.

Please note: Complete applications will be reviewed first and given funding priority. Incomplete applications will be reviewed once all necessary information has been received, provided funding is still available.

We strongly recommend that applicants contact the Historic Sites Unit for assistance before submitting an application.
