Yukon Provincial Nominee Program

Yukon Provincial Nominee Program 2019

Yukon is a Canadian territory located in the north western side of Canada that is east of Alaska between British Columbia and Artic Ocean. It was a former territory. The province’s population is around 40,000 with the most populous city being the Whitehorse. Yukon is famous for— “legendary Klondike Gold Rush” near Dawson City and the smallest desert in the world—Carcross”.

The Yukon Government conducts the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) associating with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

The partnership is based on— “Agreement for Canada-Yukon Cooperation on Immigration.”Through this partnership Yukon yearly nominates candidates who succeed in the permanent residency eligibility criteria for the federal government of Canada. The main categories of the Yukon Nominee Program of Critical Impact Workers as well a Skilled Workers are based on local labour requirements.

The Yukon employers are eligible to select the right internationally trained and well experienced international workers with the right skill sets, during the shortfall in the local workers in Yukon. The shortfall is especially contributed by the sparse population of the province. These international workers are then nominated by the province to receive a Canadian permanent residency to migrate to Yukon.

Yukon Provincial Nominee Program consists of four streams under which Yukon permanent residency is approved.

A qualified individual can migrate to Yukon through the following programs:
