Open to athletes/volunteers who make their primary home in the Yukon and are members in good standing with their associated sport governing body. Athletes who live temporarily in other provinces for training or education purposes are products of our territorial sport development system, are also eligible for nomination, as are athletes who originally came from other provinces, provided their primary residence is declared as being in the Yukon.
This category is intended for athletes who have competed for Canada in major international events sanctioned by the National Sport Governing Body such as, but not limited to the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan-American Games or World Junior/Senior Championships.
This category does not include the Arctic Winter Games or the North American Indigenous Games.
Once an athlete has competed for Canada in this category they become ineligible for an award in the Territorial/National category unless competing in an entirely different sport.
A number of individual athletes associated together in the same event. Athletes must compete as a team and cannot compete in individual categories in the same sport.
