CQ 150

In special celebration of Canada 150, and the 75th Anniversary of the Building of the Alaska Highway, the Yukon Government has developed a one-time funding project for select community organizations to enable First Nation Governments, Municipalities, and Community partners to plan and execute initiatives that will commemorate these significant milestones. Each organization will be funded $5,000. Collaborative projects are eligible for greater access to funding. CQ 150 is administered by the Yukon Arts Centre.

The fund is to support legacy projects such as enhancements to existing events, new events, or legacy purchases such as books or signage. Projects do not have to be celebratory in nature.

The following eligibility list has been developed by Yukon Government Department of Tourism and Culture.
