Government Support

Yukon government signThe Government of Yukon has a long history of supporting innovation and technology development in Yukon, through a combination of financial assistance and favourable legislation, knowing that research, education and innovation are crucial to growing a northern knowledge sector and healthy economy. In addition to funding research through Yukon College, the government financially assists businesses that develop Yukon through a number of targeted funds.

The government’s long-term vision is to put Yukon at the forefront of cold climate technology and a leader in the Arctic. As resources become scarce, remote locations become more attractive and the Government of Yukon is acting strategically now to leverage Yukon knowledge and experience to ensure the territory is able to capitalize on renewed interest in the North.
