Yukon Labour Rebate

What is the Yukon Labour Rebate?

Rebates are available to general contractors and subcontractors when they hire a minimum of 80% Yukon labour on eligible Yukon government construction contracts.

Who is eligible?

This rebate is for general contractors and subcontractors working on eligible Yukon government construction contracts where the initial award value is $100,000 or more.

How do I make a claim?

  1. All employees must fill out and sign an Employee Information and Release form. Contact the Business Incentive Program office for the form.
  2. Bring your completed Employee Information form to the Business Incentive Office as soon as the employee is hired or work on a new project is started.
  3. Fill out the Employment Report documenting all on-site hours of labour. Fill out the report according to your payroll period (for example, bi-weekly or monthly).
  4. Sign and have a Statutory Declaration form notarized and submit it to the Business Incentive Office. This must be done before the claim can be paid out.
  5. The Business Incentive Office will conduct a random payroll audit after receiving your paperwork. You will be required to submit timesheets, pay stubs and copies of cheques.
