Heritage Training Fund

The Yukon Heritage Training Fund (HTF) was designed to give Yukon residents the opportunity to increase their skills and knowledge in the heritage sector. All training approved through this fund must be directly related to increasing the employability of Yukon’s heritage workers and providing Yukon employers with a better-trained workforce.

The Yukon Heritage Training Fund (HTF) is funded by the Department of Education, Labour Market Programs and Services and is administered by the Yukon Historical & Museums Association (YHMA). Applications are reviewed by a committee of up to five members representing heritage sectors and are assessed based on eligibility, merit, fund priorities, and an ability to meet fund criteria.
