Apprentice Rebate


  • The rebate is equal to 15% of the gross wages paid to an apprentice on an eligible project. The apprentice must be registered with the Department of Education, Advanced Education Branch in order for their wages to be eligible and must also be a Yukon resident. 
  • Where an apprentice is also a youth, only the apprentice rebate will be applied to that employee’s wages.  Youth and apprentice rebates are paid in addition to the labour rebate. 

How to apply for the apprentice rebate:

  • This apprentice must complete and sign the Employee Information and Release form (Contact our office for a copy of this form.)
  • Identify the apprentice (for example as an Apprentice Carpenter) and list all on-site hours for the apprentice on the employment report. You may list the apprentice hours on the same employment report used for all other employees.
  • Sign a Statutory Declaration form. You must sign this declaration before the claim can be paid out.
    • In person: Business Incentive Office. Stop in to sign the form and have it notarized at no cost to you.
    • Online: Download the form, print and complete it, have it notarized and bring it in to the Business Incentive Office.
