How Yukon nominates people for permanent residency

The Government of Yukon works with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to bring foreign, skilled workers and business owners to Yukon. This allows us to nominate qualified foreign nationals to the federal government for permanent residency. Find out about working in Yukon.

The Government of Yukon does not recruit workers on behalf of Yukon businesses.
