Yukon Nominee Program (YNP)

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.

Successful applicants will receive a Yukon Nomination Certificate, which will speed-up the Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa application process.  Under the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP), you may qualify under one of two streams:

  • Business Program
  • Skilled Worker

Yukon PNP Business Program

This program allows the government of Yukon to nominate qualified individuals with business skills who wish to own and operate a business in the province. While it is not an investment program, applicants are required to put money into their business to ensure its viability.

In order to qualify for this category, the applicant must:

  • Have at least one year of senior management or direct entrepreneurial experience in a business similar to the one they wish to establish, and some times more number of years of experience is required as the case may be
  • Show a minimum net worth of $250,000 CAD, including liquid assets of at least $150,000 CAD
  • Show sufficient knowledge and understanding of the province and its economy, by having visited the province at least once
  • Business applicants are required to meet with one of the program’s officers during their visit
  • Be able to communicate in one of the official languages
  • Plan to be actively involved in the day-to-day management and operation of the business
  • Minimum equity investment of $150,000 CAD.  This must purchase at least 33.33% of the business

Yukon PNP Skilled Worker Program

There are two categories under the Skilled Worker Program:

  • A permanent full-time job offer from a Yukon employer in an occupation that falls in levels A, B, or 0 in the National Occupational Classification Matrix;

  • A license or accepted by the Territorial body governing the occupation or trade, if applicable;
  • The ability to conduct basic communications in the official language of the work place;
