The Yukon Nominee Program was developed to allow the Government of Yukon to nominate potential immigrants based on industrial and economic priorities and labour market conditions; and who, based on Yukon’s assessment, have a strong likelihood of successfully establishing themselves in Yukon society.

There are three programs the Yukon Nominee Program offers: the Skilled Worker Program, the Critical Impact Worker Program and the Business Program. Please link to the categories listed to find out more information on each program:

Business Program Overview:

The Yukon Business Nominee Program operates under an agreement with the Government of Canada and allows the Government of Yukon to nominate for immigration to Canada those individuals with proven business skills who want to live in Yukon, and who want to own and operate a business and make a significant contribution to the community.

Skilled Worker/Critical Impact Worker Program:

The Critical Impact Worker Program and the Skilled Worker Programs are employer driven; designed to assist Yukon employers, sectors or governments to identify and nominate potential qualified immigrants to fill positions that cannot be filled by the territorial or national labour market.

A survey was conducted in March 2010 to evaluate employer and nominee experiences with the Yukon Nominee Program. The Yukon Nominee Program Survey Report presents these results.

To meet with officers administering the Yukon Nominee Program, employers and nominees must make an appointment. This will ensure that service is provided efficiently and that all documents can be prepared ahead of time. To make an appointment, please call (867) 667-5131, and indicate the name of the nominee, the name of the business, the reason for the appointment and the file number.

As of October 5, 2011, any foreign national who is currently in Canada on a student permit needs to provide proof of one year of study for certificate programs and two years of study for diploma programs before being considered for the Yukon Nominee Program.

Starting December 1, 2011, applications for Permanent Residence have to be submitted to the Centralized Intake Office (CIO) in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Nominees must submit their application for Permanent Residence within three month after they arrived in Yukon.
