On Thursday, August 11, while in Whitehorse (Yukon, Canada), the Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance, announced, on behalf of the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister of Northern Affairs, Minister for PrairiesCan, and Minister for CanNor, that the Canadian government is investing over CA$87,000 towards a one-year project by Yukon Motorcycle Park Inc. to renovate and expand the Yukon Motorcycle Park.

As per a press release, the funding through CanNor’s Inclusive Diversification and Economic Advancement in the North (IDEANorth) program supports enhancements to a campground designed exclusively for long-distance motorcycle riders.

The motorcycle park will undergo an upgrade and expansion, which will improve the accommodation capacity and upgrade the on-site infrastructure, including laundry facilities and the establishment of a DIY repair shop.

CanNor’s funding supports the project by helping purchase supplies and materials needed for the site improvements.

Due to this venture, five new jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase, and two more jobs will be maintained and expanded once the Yukon Motorcycle Park’s renovations are completed.

“The tourism sector is key to growing Yukon’s economy and helping northern communities thrive. We are helping entrepreneurs and businesses adapt, make improvements, and welcome back visitors from Canada and abroad.” said The Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance.
