Step 1: Get a Job Offer in Yukon

In order to be qualified under the Yukon Express Entry Stream and submit your application, you must have a bona fide full-time job offer from a Yukon employer in an eligible occupation.

As a foreign worker in Canada, you first need to find an employer and secure the job for yourself. The criteria for your job in Yukon are explained in “Minimum Requirements”.
If you are currently in Canada, you must have legal status to work and must have a valid work permit for the duration of the application process.

Step 2: Create Express Entry Profile

For a chance to be invited to apply under YNP Express Entry Stream, you must create an Express Entry Profile (➨Page) for yourself. Within your Express Entry profile make sure you have stated an interest in immigrating permanently to Yukon.

Since you are eligible under one of the three (3) economic immigration programs (Federal Skilled Workers Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program or Canadian Experience Class), you will be accepted into the pool of candidates.

Step 3: Submit Application to YNP

If you have all the above requirements, you may submit your application by providing the Application Forms and all supporting documentation to YNP.
The Employer, or Authorized Representative, is responsible for completing the application package and submitting it to the Nominee Program.
Original complete application package must be submitted by registered mail or courier or delivered in person. There is no provincial application fee under the YNP.
If your application is complete, you and your employer will receive an email confirming that your file has been received and accepted for processing. This will include your YNP file number.

[email protected]

A YNP officer will contact you and/or your employer by email or phone if information is needed to assess your application and will tell you how to send the information. If you are already in Yukon, the employer must arrange for a screening interview with a Government of Yukon Immigration Officer. Both you and employer must be present.

You and your employer will receive a decision on your application by email. If your application is approved, you will receive a nomination certificate through the Express Entry portal. The YNP will also email you a nomination certificate that you should retain for your records.
You must accept the nomination within thirty (30) days after it is issued through the Express Entry portal in order to receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence.

When you accept a nomination, you are awarded 600 additional points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) (➨Page). This will help you quickly get invited to apply for permanent residence through your Express Entry profile.

Step 4: Apply for Permanent Residence

You can only apply for permanent residence (➨Page) through Express Entry if you’ve received an invitation to apply from your online Express Entry profile.

Your Express Entry invitation to apply is valid for sixty (60) days only.
Apply for a Bridging Open Work Permit (if applicable)

For those of you who are in Yukon on a valid work permit, once you submit your complete PR application, you may apply for a Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) (➨Page). This will let you continue working on a valid work permit until your PR application is finalized.

Step 5: Landing in Canada

If your application is approved, you will be asked to pay your right of permanent residence fee if you haven’t already done so. You will receive a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (CoPR) and if you are from a country that requires a visa you will also be issued a permanent resident visa.

You will only become a Permanent Resident of Canada when you cross a Canadian port of entry. This is referred to as ‘landing in Canada’ (➨Page).

You must land in Canada before the expiry date, which appears on your Canada Immigration Visa. Usually, the expiry date is one (1) year from the time medical examinations were completed. As this is not always the case, be sure to verify the expiry date as soon as the Canada Immigration Visa is received.
