The Community Training Funds (CTF) initiative is a successful and proven method to address the training needs of Yukon residents. CTF funds training in three different ways: community-based, economic sector-based and project-based.
Proposals for CTF project funds are accepted on an ongoing basis. The document, Guidelines for Proposal Submissions is available here.
Community-based training funds
Community-based training funds are designed to put decisions about training in the hands of those best equipped to understand what is needed – the communities themselves. Community-based training funds are managed by regional committees which may include representation from the local municipal government, First Nation, Yukon College community campus, and from the community at large. Currently, the community-based funds are:

Sector funds are hosted by sector organizations and managed by committees made up of representatives with expertise in the sector. Currently, the economic sector-based funds are:
Project-based training funds
Project-based training funds respond to immediate and specific training needs in the community based on proposals that demonstrate a labour market need. These training funds identify specific training activities and outline desired training outcomes. CTF projects vary from year to year. Some examples of current and past funding initiatives include:
