How to Immigrate to Yukon through PNP
The territory of Yukon is known as Canada’s Wilderness City. If you are a foreign national that enjoys snow all year round, with the exception of July, the Yukon is made for you. In addition to the snowy scenary, Yukon also has the summer solstice and the winter solstice can bring different lengths of days and can be an interesting change of lifestyle. Foreign nationals who are applying through the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) have four different ways to gain permanent residency in the Yukon. Under this program, Yukon chooses individuals who have a connection with the territory of the Yukon. In this article, I will address what the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) is and the four different ways to gain permanent residency in the Yukon.
What is the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP)
The Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) is an economic immigration program that assists the territory of the Yukon to meet its labour market needs and helps prioritize economic development within the Yukon. It also supports foreign nationals by offering an alternate and quicker entry into Canada for permanent residency. The YNP is administered by the government of the Yukon and runs in partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The program facilitates the territory of Yukon to nominate foreign nationals with skilled work experience and who qualify under the established criteria to work in the Yukon and obtain permanent residency. In turn, these individuals will then be able to contribute to Yukon’s economy.
