Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) – Non Express Entry

    • What is Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) – Non Express Stream

      The non-Express Entry process for Yukon involves the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP), which allows the territory to nominate individuals who have the skills, experience, and qualifications needed in Yukon’s labor market. Here’s an overview of the non-Express Entry process for Yukon:

      • – Eligibility Criteria: The YNP has several streams, each with its own specific eligibility criteria. These criteria may include factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, and ties to Yukon.

      • – Categories and Streams: The YNP typically includes streams such as the Skilled Worker Program, the Critical Impact Worker Program, the Express Entry Program (not part of the federal Express Entry system), and the Business Nominee Program. Applicants need to determine which stream aligns best with their qualifications and intentions.

      • – Expression of Interest (EOI): In most cases, individuals interested in applying to the YNP must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the program. The EOI typically includes information about the applicant’s education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant details.

      • – Invitation to Apply (ITA): Qualified candidates may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for provincial nomination from the YNP. This invitation is usually based on factors such as the applicant’s score in the EOI pool and the current needs of Yukon’s labor market.

      • – Application Submission: Once an ITA is received, applicants have a specified time frame to submit a complete application to the YNP. The application should include all required documents and information as per the stream’s guidelines.

      • – Nomination: If the application is approved, the applicant will receive a provincial nomination certificate from Yukon.

      • – Federal Application: With the provincial nomination certificate, the applicant can then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence. The federal government will assess the application based on admissibility requirements, such as health, security, and background checks.

      • – Permanent Residence: If the federal application is approved, the applicant and their family members (if applicable) will be granted permanent residence in Canada.

      It’s important for applicants to carefully review the specific requirements and processes for the YNP stream they are interested in, as they may vary. They should also ensure they have the most up-to-date information by consulting the official website of the Yukon Nominee Program.
