Yukon Nominee Program

On March 16, 2023, the Government of Yukon announced that the territory increased the number of allocations under the Provincial Nominee Program (YNP) for 2023, allowing more foreign workers to immigrate to the Yukon. 

By increasing the Yukon’s nominee allocations from 300 to 430 for 2023, the YNP assists employers in filling essential positions with foreign nationals who wish to become permanent residents of the territory. 

For the second time since its launch in 2007, the Yukon Nominee Program reached its full capacity of 300 spaces by 2022 and aims to accept even more immigrants this year.


The Yukon government is committed to assisting employers throughout the territory with their labor demands. Economic immigration is a vital strategy for attracting workers and developing a workforce that supports investment and economic growth while meeting the demands of Yukon businesses.  


Premier and Minister of Economic Development Ranj Pillai stated: 

‘The Yukon’s nominee allocation has increased in a welcome way as a result of productive conversations with our federal partners regarding the feedback we got from the business community.  With this increase, we will be able to support our business even more and encourage more prospective Canadians to settle down in the Yukon.”
