The Yukon Nominee Program enables the territory to nominate applicants according to the territory’s needs and the applicants’ potential adaptability to life in the Yukon. There are two different categories under the Yukon Nominee Program: the Skilled Worker/Critical Impact Worker category and the Yukon Business Nominee Program.
This is an employer-driven category that enables employers in the Yukon fill vacant positions with qualified immigrants when the national and territorial labour markets cannot fill them.
The Business Nominee Program is comprised of two categories: The Entrepreneur Category and the Self-Employed Category. The Entrepreneur Category enables business owners and operators in certain industries to propose a business plan to start a business, invest in an existing business, or purchase a business upon immigration. Applicants must meet certain financial requirements and business qualifications. The Self-Employed Category allows professionals to immigrate to the Yukon to provide a service in demand in the province.
No. Once you receive your Provincial Nomination Certificate or your Quebec Selection Certificate, you must submit your file to immigration authorities in order to have your application for Permanent Residence processed. Citizenship and Immigration Canada is responsible for processing your security and medical checks and issuing your Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa. However, as your qualifications will have already been assessed at the provincial level, you will not need to have them assessed at the federal level.
