YUKON NOMINEE PROGRAM (YNP)

The Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) is run by the Yukon Government in partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) under the “Agreement for Canada-Yukon Cooperation on Immigration.”

This partnership allows Yukon to nominate applicants who qualify to the federal government for permanent residency.

The YNP streams for Skilled Workers and Critical Impact Workers is locally driven and based on the needs of Yukon employers.

When eligible Yukon employers cannot find Canadian citizens or permanent residents to fill permanent full-time jobs, they can find workers from outside of Canada. We select internationally trained and experienced foreign workers who have the skills needed in the local labour market, and nominate them to receive Canadian permanent resident visas to settle and work in Yukon.

This Stream is for qualified workers who have a valid job offer from Yukon Employer and must fit into National Occupation Classification (NOC) 0, A and B categories.

You must have a valid work permit and valid temporary resident status to remain eligible for the YNP. It is extremely important that you do not let your work permit and temporary resident status expire while you wait for your YNP application to be assessed.

Express Entry helps eligible economic immigrants find permanent work in Yukon when employers cannot find Canadians or permanent residents for job openings. Most successful applicants will receive permanent residence within six months of verification of completed applications.

To qualify for Yukon’s Express Entry stream, an applicant must have a valid job offer for full-time, permanent work from an eligible Yukon employer and meet the requirements of one of the three eligible federal economic immigration programs. These programs have minimum language requirements, and education and other qualifications will be assessed against Canadian standards.
