Tourism is a vital component to the sustainability of Yukon’s economic future. It remains the territory’s second-largest industry, contributes over 100 million to Yukon’s GDP and generates jobs for approximately 25% of the territory’s employed residents.
At Tourism Yukon, we support the development of our industry in the following ways:
The Industry Services unit offers Product Development advice and counselling, along with Research data and information regarding Resource and Land Planning. Industry Services is also responsible for managing the Product Development Partnership Program and the Tourism Cooperative Marketing Fund. Want to make your business ideas into a reality? Come and talk to us!
The Marketing team takes your market and export ready tourism products and shouts them out to the world! We work with tour operators, suppliers, travel agents, travel media and meeting professionals to attract international visitors to your unique business and our beautiful backyard.
Visitor Services play an important role in the growth of Yukon’s tourism industry. At our six Visitor Information Centres (VICs) we provide high quality information that encourages visitors to stay longer, spend more money, revisit a region, or experience more of the amazing surprises that our territory has to offer.
