Yukon Communities Small Business Network

We are developing a network of support in Yukon communities and adapting entrepreneurial programming and services for rural entrepreneurs to thrive. 

You are devoted to serving your community and we are devoted to supporting you. Whether you own a small business, or you’re passionate about a craft or hobby, we support flexible and engaging entrepreneurship programming customized to your needs.  

We collaborate with community partners throughout Yukon communities to offer workshops and skills so you can do what you do best, in a way that is financially sustainable. We work closely to connect you to funding, entrepreneurship programs and services, such as the Indigenous Business Directory. 

Learning from the needs of communities, we support YukonU’s Continuing Studies Division, community campuses and partners throughout the territory to adapt tools and training in a culturally relevant way to help you thrive—wherever you call home. 

This program relies on a strong network of mentors, coaches, and peer supports with varied skills, expertise and cultural backgrounds.
