The Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) which is administered by the territory of Yukon works with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to nominate potential applicants for Permanent Residence status in Canada.

Thousands of qualified Temporary Visa holders enjoy employment in Canada with hopes of obtaining permanent status to better the lives of themselves and their families and through such a program their dreams can be realized. You may be next.

When nominating individuals, YNP looks at industrial and economic priorities along with labour market conditions. Potential applicants under the TNP can apply under one of the following three streams; Skilled Worker Program, The Critical Impact Worker Program and the Business Program.

Due to the immense interest this program garners the application process is extremely competitive. One certainly can’t afford to have their life’s dream jolted due to incorrectly filled and submitted paper work. It is for just such a reason why employing an immigration professional comes so highly recommended.

Who is the Yukon Nominee Program for?

The Yukon Nominee Program is individuals interested in applying under either the Skilled Worker Program, The Critical Impact Worker Program or the Business Program. Under the Skilled Worker and Critical Impact Worker Program, the employer driven streams allow for Yukon employers, sectors and the government to nominate individuals who are able to fill the gap in the labour market in the territory of Yukon.

Business people and investors who are interested in applying under the Business Program, there are an array of opportunities which require a business person to both invest and manage a business in the territory.

What to Ask a Licensed Canadian Immigration Professional About the YNP?

Not all immigration professionals are created equal.  Often we’ve noticed that Yukon Nominee Program visas aren’t accepted because the right questions were not discussed.

Here are some very important questions you want to ask any person you are planning on hiring to help you with your Yukon Nominee Program visa application:

  • How do I become eligible to be nominated to apply under the YNP?
  • What is the minimum investment that I need to make in the province along with the requirements for the type of business which I have to invest in and manage?
  • If you have a family, you may want to ask, can my family also immigrate under the YNP?

The immigration professional should have no problems answer those important questions for you.
