Yukon 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.

Yukon business owners can apply to the Yukon Nominee Program to hire foreign workers when their business can’t fill a permanent full-time job with a Canadian or permanent resident. The Government of Yukon doesn’t recruit workers on behalf of Yukon businesses.

Foreign workers can bring a spouse or common-law partner and dependent children under the age of 18 to Yukon if approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The YNP consists of the following programs:

Yukon Express Entry (YEE)

The Yukon Express Entry Program (YEE) is linked to the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) through the federal Express Entry immigration selection system. Yukon employers who are unable to find Canadian citizens / permanent residents to fill skilled job positions may now access Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool of candidates.

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