Whitehorse—A new Carcross Visitor Information Centre will be ready for the summer tourism season.

“The team at the Carcross Visitor Information Centre will be providing exceptional service from a new location,” Tourism and Culture Minister Mike Nixon said. “We’re expecting another busy tourism season and the building is ideal for meeting travelers’ needs.”

The Yukon government is entering into a two-year lease of $101,032 with Carcross Tagish Management Corporation, on behalf of the Carcross Tagish Limited Partnership, and Northern Vision Development Limited Partnership. The lease was awarded through a request for proposals.

The new visitor information centre is close to many of the community’s main attractions and is part of a tourism-focused development led by the Carcross Tagish Management Corporation.

Yukon’s seasonal visitor centres in Beaver Creek, Carcross, Dawson City, Haines Junction and Watson Lake will open on May 2. The Yukon Visitor Information Centre in Whitehorse is open year-round. New this year, the Whitehorse centre will offer WIFI internet access to assist travelers with planning their Yukon experience, while staying connected with friends and relatives.

The Yukon government provides $1.52 million annually for six visitor information centres to offer services to approximately 237,000 visitors per year.
