Yukon Nominee Program (YPNP)
With a population of just over 30,000 people, the Yukon labor market is in express need for foreign skilled workers to fill the high demand for skilled and semi-skilled occupations.
Streams of the YNP include:
- Critical Impact Worker
- Skilled Worker
- Express Entry
- Yukon Community Program (includes a Critical Impact Worker and Skilled Worker stream).
Your stream is determined by the National Occupational Classification (NOC) of the job offer:
- Occupations in NOC Skill Levels C or D fall under the Critical Impact Worker stream.
- Occupations in NOC Skill Levels 0, A, or B fall under the Skilled Worker stream.
For example, if you’ve been offered employment as a Food Counter Attendant (NOC code 6711) you fall under NOC skill level D and would therefore apply under the Critical Impact Worker stream.
Employers wishing to nominate a skilled worker can apply to the Skilled Worker or Express Entry stream.
