What's Your Recreation?

Recreation is many things to many people. It offers invaluable physical, mental and emotional benefits and can be pursued at any age and in every corner of the territory. Through the What’s Your Recreation? campaign, we profile just some of the inspiring ways Yukoners are staying active, connecting with each other and the environment and pursuing more healthy, meaningful lifestyles. Lotteries Yukon encourages you to discover and celebrate What’s Your Recreation?

New Financial Practice for In-Kind Contribution 

Lotteries Yukon acknowledges that the organizations we serve are largely volunteer-based and contribute to projects in various ways: through volunteer labour, community donations and sponsorships. Effective April 1, 2020 Lotteries Yukon is implementing a new in-kind policy to clarify the eligibility and the value of in-kind contributions.

Applicants to the Projects Fund are required to submit a quote or a breakdown of tasks/hours to substantiate in-kind contributions included in the project budget. For details, please refer to the in-kind contribution tab in the Financial Reports form.  

Travel Assistance Program Update 

Lotteries Yukon has made changes to the Travel Assistance Program (TAP) that took effect Monday, December 2, 2019. These changes are being implemented on an incremental basis.

For travel between December 2, 2019 to March 31, 2020

A Submission Form will be required after travel has occurred. The Submission Form and supporting documents must be submitted within 30 calendar days after the end of the competition. 

For the 2020/21 Fiscal Year (April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021)

Sport Governing Bodies (SGB) and non-profits where no SGB exists must submit a Travel Plan for competitions where they expect to utilize TAP funding from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. The new process was discussed at information/feedback sessions held with Sport Governing Bodies during the month of November. Lotteries Yukon is following up with Sport Governing Bodies on the next steps for the 2020-2021 Travel Plan requirement.

A separate process for arts and extra-curricular high school group travel is underway. 

As Yukon Sport Governing Bodies (YSGB) are responsible for their affiliate clubs - all contact with Lotteries Yukon regarding the Travel Assistance Program is through the Sport Governing Body responsible for the sport.
