A message from the SPYA board

Dear SPYA membership:

In response to COVID-19 and direction from the Yukon’s Chief Medical Health Officer, all of our upcoming events have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. Currently, our staff members and contractors are working from home.
 
We know that this is a difficult and uncertain time as productions, festivals, and events are cancelled in the Yukon and throughout the country. Organizations such as the Documentary Association of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts are encouraging people to document lost revenue for the time being.
 
Meanwhile, both the Yukon and the federal governments are developing supports for businesses. You can follow these links to find out more:

The SPYA board continues to meet by phone to monitor the effects on our industry. When the time comes, we will be here to advocate for you and for our industry.
 
Sincerely,
The Screen Production Yukon Association board
