Yukon Tourism Development Strategy


The draft Yukon Tourism Development Strategy is now available for comment. We encourage you to review the draft and share your thoughts by email to by October 3, 2018.


Sustainable Tourism. Our Path. Our Future. lays out a vision for tourism to be a vibrant, sustainable component of Yukon's economy and society for the benefit of future generations. The draft ten-year plan is guided by eight core values, three goals, and four inter-related pillars that outline 24 strategic actions to bring the vision to life.


This high-level, goal-oriented strategy was developed with the guidance and expertise of the Yukon Tourism Development Strategy Steering Committee, and from over 500 Yukoners who joined the conversation in-person at one of the 55 engagement sessions held across the territory, or online through written submissions and an online survey, for a total of over 12,000 comments on how to sustainably grow tourism in Yukon.


For more information, visit the Yukon Tourism Development Strategy website, read a summary of what we heard throughout the engagement, or read what was said in your community.
