The Golden Host award program, the Yukon’s most coveted hospitality award, is presented jointly by the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon, Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce and the Yukon Tourism Education Council to honor and recognize individuals for extraordinary service to Yukon visitors. All Yukoners can be nominated, including those who work in the tourism industry. Everyone nominated for a Golden Host Award receives a letter of congratulations and then two winners per month are chosen – one from Whitehorse and one from the outlying communities.
The winners receive a letter of thanks and are honored at a Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon. Their names also appear in ads sponsored by the Yukon News newspaper and CKRW radio. Visitors are encouraged to recognize residents who go the extra mile, taking that extra step to help them enjoy their stay while in the Yukon. Visitors can nominate individuals or businesses by completing the nominating form which can be found at all visitor centers, information kiosks, and participating businesses like Midnight Sun Inn & Vacation Rentals! With visitors’ participation a higher standard of service will be offered throughout the Yukon.
