The Department of Economic Development will be hosting the 2nd annual Funders Meet and Greet on February 28, 2024 at the  Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. This event aims to provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the different resources and funding programs offered by the Government of Yukon and their partners.
This is the perfect opportunity for the public to meet representatives from different organizations and be educated on the organization's mandate, service and programs.

This event is suited to individuals, not-for-profits, businesses and First Nations development entities and governments, as well as municipal governments.

This event is free and does not require registration. Doors are open to the public from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
