Yukon Youth Rebate

What is the Youth Rebate?

Rebates are available to contractors for hiring Yukon youth on eligible Government of Yukon construction contracts of any value.

Who is eligible?

The youth must be a Yukon resident between the ages of 16 and 24 and employed on an eligible Government of Yukon construction contract of any value.

Youth and apprentice rebates are paid in addition to the labour rebate but when a youth is also an apprentice, only the apprentice rebate will be applied.

How much is available?

The rebate is equal to 15% of the gross wages paid to the youth.

How do I make a claim?

  1. Contact the Business Incentive Office for the Employee Information and Release form.
  2. Identify the youth’s duties and list all hours worked on the Employment Report.
  3. Sign and have a Statutory Declaration form notarized and submit it to the Business Incentive Office. This declaration must be completed before a claim can be paid out.
