Where can I find results? 

The insights gathered will be compiled into a What We Heard report and contribute to the development of the 2020–30 immigration strategy for Yukon. The report is anticipated to be published shortly after the conclusion of the public engagement.

What was this engagement about? 

The Government of Yukon is modernizing its Economic Immigration Strategy to guide policy and program development over the next decade, and to ensure immigration programming continues to be responsive to the needs of Yukon’s economy. The strategy will replace the existing document that expired in 2019.

In drafting the next strategy, Yukon has an opportunity to position itself as a desirable destination for settlement for newcomers, and to strategically target newcomers most likely to enhance the territory’s economy, diversity and social fabric. The strategy will cover existing programs like the popular Yukon Nominee Program and Business Nominee Program, along with potential new programs to assist Yukon employers and continue to grow the economy with the help of immigration. The strategy applies only to economic immigration, and does not address non-economic immigration programming.

How will my input make a difference? 

Your feedback will help guide the Department of Economic Development in designing the new immigration strategy. Our goal is to develop a strong and united approach to economic immigration that is responsive to the values and concerns of Yukoners.
