Yukon is located at the extreme Northwest of Canada and heavily relies on mining and tourism. The Citizenship and Immigration Canada has coordinated with the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) to receive nominations for applicants for permanent residency in Canada.

The labour market and industrial and economic priorities determine which individuals will be nominated. There are 3 categories to apply from-Skilled Worker Program, The Critical Impact Worker Program and the Business Program.

However, it is important to note that the application process to this stream is complicated and will require the guidance of an experienced immigration professional so that you do not lose of due to incomplete application.

Who can apply for the Yukon Nominee Program?

Applicants can apply in one of the 3 categories-the Skilled Worker Program, The Critical Impact Worker Program or the Business Program.

Employer driven streams dominate the Skilled Worker and Critical Impact Worker Program. This allows Yukon employers, sectors and the government to nominate individuals who are able to fill the gap in the labour market in the territory of Yukon.

Under the Business Program, businesspeople can apply and avail of the opportunities which require a businessperson to both invest and manage a business in the territory.
