Film Locations Incentive

Wheaton River
Wheaton River, South Yukon

Canada’s Yukon is known as a film-friendly region, and we’re willing to back up that claim with financial support as we invite your production to take advantage of the Yukon’s spectacular locations.

The Film Location Incentive encourages production companies from outside Yukon to film in Yukon and hire and train Yukoners. Please note – this program is not a tax credit -  it is a rebate. Funding is usually released within 8 weeks of the completion of filming in Yukon and submission of required reporting

In order to apply for this funding, production companies are required to register with Yukon Corporate Affairs.

Travel Rebate
