Air North GOAL Program


Air North, Yukon’s Airline, is pleased to announce the GOAL (Giving Our Athletes a Lift) Program, which provides Sport Yukon with thirty (30) travel certificates.

These certificates are to be allocated to athletes who are members of Yukon Sport Governing Bodies.  Each travel certificate entitles the athlete to one flight segment for the purpose of competing in a recognized sporting event outside of the territory, including competitions, training, try-outs, and tournaments. 

These travel certificates will be allocated to approximately 5 to 6 athletes at the choosing of Sport Yukon and Air North, with consideration based on:

  • Caliber and/or significance of the event to the athlete’s sporting career
  • Other sources of funding available to the athlete
  • The athlete’s demonstrated commitment to:
    • Sport and healthy living
    • Community involvement
    • A yearly training program
