  1. Before you apply

    All corporations providing dental, physiotherapy, psychiatric nursing or pharmacy services in Yukon must register and hold a valid professional corporation permit. 

    We accept new applications on an ongoing basis. You only need to apply once, but you must renew your permit every year.

    Before you apply for a professional corporation permit you must have:

    If you or another director in your corporation has had any complaints, disciplinary or criminal action against you:

    • we'll assess your eligibility for registration or licensure on a case-by-case basis; and
    • you may not be approved for registration or or a permit.

    It’s illegal to advertise or provide dental, physiotherapy, psychiatric nursing or pharmacy services through a corporation that's not registered and permitted.
