Public engagement on the future of immigration in Yukon set to begin

Yukoners are being asked to contribute their ideas and experiences with the Yukon Nominee Program to help inform immigration in the territory for the next 10 years.

The Government of Yukon is modernizing its economic immigration strategy to guide policy and program development and to ensure immigration programming continues to be responsive to the needs of Yukon’s economy.

Individuals can provide input by visiting engageyukon.ca. Survey responses will be accepted until December 4, 2020.

Our government is committed to developing effective immigration programming that helps Yukon businesses thrive. This is an opportunity for Yukoners, employers and past nominees to contribute their own personal experiences and ideas for how to improve immigration in the territory. Understanding the barriers individuals face in accessing immigration programming will help to develop policies to better accommodate nominees and their employers.

Minister of Economic Development Ranj Pillai
