Yukon is notable for its mineral wealth, impeccable wilderness and a closed knit population. Yukon’s two-thirds of the population lives in its capital, Whitehorse. In the year 2019, more than 300 families of immigrants moved to Yukon through YNP.
Yukon Nominee Program
Yukon’s underpopulation stands as the reasons for the stupendous job opportunities for skilled and semi-skilled workers. Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) is one of the major pathways to migrate to Canada. Under Yukon PNP, the categories for skilled migration are,
- Yukon Skilled Worker
- Yukon Express Entry
- Yukon Critical Impact Worker
- Yukon Community Pilot
Yukon Skilled Worker
The appropriate foreign nationals who have skilled work experience along with a valid job offer from Yukon employer are targeted by the Yukon Skilled Worker Stream. The candidate can directly apply for Canada PR after receiving a provincial nomination from Yukon under this category.
Most importantly, the job offer of the candidate must be for any of the designations under the National Occupation Classification A, O or B. The candidate at the time of applying should also have,
- A study visa or a Temporary Work Permit (TWP)
- Proven work experience or valid education to qualify that position applied for
- Certificates of ECA (Education Credential Assessment)
- Met the language certificates
- At least 12 months of minimum full-time work experience acquired in the past 10 years
Yukon Express Entry
You can apply for a provincial nomination from Yukon through Yukon Express Entry stream with an active express entry profile and an in-hand job offer from a Yukon employer. The education qualification, work experience, language ability and age are all brought under consideration to assess the eligibility of the applicant. This stream directly pertains to the federal express entry system and the candidates nominated in this category can enjoy the expedited process of their application for Canada immigration.
- Jobseeker validation code along with the Express Entry profile number
- Sufficient settlement funds
- Full-time permanent job offered by an eligible Yukon employer
- A reasonable intention to live and work in Canada
Yukon Critical Impact Worker
Semi-skilled workers with a valid job offer from a Yukon employer may apply for a provincial nomination under the Yukon critical employer stream. Anyhow, the candidate must need to qualify the eligibility with some basic requirements like having a minimum of 55 points in the Yukon Nominee Program Pre-Assessment points grid. Otherwise, for at least six months, the candidate must have worked for the same employer who is offering the job on a valid work permit.
Yukon Community Pilot
This program is a new addition to the streams under Yukon PNP launched specifically for the purpose of addressing the economic labour market needs of Yukon. The candidates qualifying under this program get a two-year location restricted open work permit. As it is required that an applicant must work at least 30 hours per week to apply for permanent residence under the Yukon Community Pilot, Yukon permits the applicant to work two or three jobs simultaneously. Moreover, you don’t need to take up the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to obtain a work permit, which means faster processing of the applications.
The jobs must not be contract oriented or seasonal. It should be a full-time offer in any one of the following participating communities:
- Watson Lake
- Dawson City
- Haines Junction
