Yukon Nominee Program (YNP)

The Yukon, a territory in northwest Canada, is wild, mountainous and sparsely populated. Kluane National Park and Reserve includes Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak, as well as glaciers, trails and the Alsek River. In the far north is Ivvavik National Park, with protected calving grounds for Porcupine caribou. In the south are numerous glacier-fed alpine lakes, including boldly coloured Emerald Lake.

The average weekly earnings in the Yukon in the first 11 months of 2017 was $1,093, behind only Alberta and the other territories.

The Yukon Provincial Nominee Program (Yukon PNP) enables applicants with the skills and experience required by the province to receive a Provincial Nomination Certificate that expedites the Canadian Immigration and Permanent Residency process.

The YNP consists of the following programs:

  • Yukon Express Entry (YEE)
  • Skilled Worker
  • Critical Impact Worker
  • Business Nominee

    See below for more information. 


Yukon Express Entry (YEE)

The Yukon government opened Yukon Express Entry (YEE) in 2015, a stream of the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP). YEE is aligned with the federal Express Entry system, meaning applicants must have an active profile in the Express Entry pool to be eligible. Individuals who meet the requirements for YEE and have an intent to live and work in the Yukon may be eligible to receive a Yukon provincial nomination. Successful applicants may claim 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points on their Express Entry profile, and may receive expedited permanent residence processing in order to quickly and efficiently integrate into Yukon life and workforce.

YEE applicants are drawn from the pool on the basis of nominations arising from valid job offers for permanent, full-time work from eligible Yukon employers.

Skilled Worker

Designed to fill important gaps within the Yukon workforce, the Skilled Worker stream of the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) gives employers the opportunity to nominate skilled foreign nationals for permanent residence in Canada.

Critical Impact Worker

The Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) Critical Impact Worker stream gives employers the chance to nominate workers with experience in occupations classified as low-skilled for Canadian permanent residence.
