One of the many ways to immigrate to Canada is to participate in the Yukon Nominee Program.
Applicants who have failed to score enough points required for immigration to Canada under a federal program can try to relocate to the country under one of 11 Provincial Nominee Programs which offer a lot of attractive options to a wide range of professionals. Provincial programs are also pathways for those who wish to immigrate to a specific province or territory.
One of such programs is effective in Yukon and is called “Yukon Nominee Program” (YNP). It includes several streams:
- Yukon Express Entry (for high-skilled specialists who work in occupations categorized as NOC skill levels 0, A or B, have a job offer in Yukon, and are registered in the Express Entry system)
- Skilled Worker (for high-skilled specialists who work in occupations categorized as NOC skill levels 0, A or B and have a job offer from an employer in Yukon)
- Critical Impact Worker (for intermediate and low-skilled workers in occupations categorized as NOC skill levels C or D who have a job offer from an employer in Yukon)
- Business Nominee (for foreign entrepreneurs wishing to own and manage a business in Yukon)
By choosing one of these streams you can get a provincial nomination followed by permanent residence in Canada and — after three years of permanent residence — become a citizen of the country.
Located in the remote northwest part of Canada, Yukon occupies a legendary place in the history of the country. Perhaps this territory is best known for the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s. Today, the Yukon population barely exceeds 30 thousand people who live mainly in the capital of the territory, the city of Whitehorse. The economy of the territory is based mainly on mining and tourism. Yukon is an ideal place for people who appreciate small friendly communities and beautiful natural landscapes.
