The Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) is the Yukon’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the territory may receive a Yukon Provincial Nomination Certificate, after which they can apply for Canadian permanent residence with the Government of Canada.
The YNP consists of the following programs:
The YNP Express Entry Program (YEE) increases the overall allocation for the YNP through the introduction of “enhanced” allocations that may be used in conjunction with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system. Yukon employers who cannot find Canadian citizens or permanent residents to fill job openings for skilled workers now have access to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool of candidates.
YEE applicants are drawn from the pool on the basis of nominations arising from valid job offers for permanent, full-time work from eligible Yukon employers.

This program was created to help employers sponsor workers for immigration who have experience in a semi-skilled or unskilled occupation in high demand in the territory. Sponsored applicants must receive a job offer from a Yukon employer; however, they are not required to be in Yukon at the time of application.
