Yukon Express Entry for Foreigners

Employers can apply to the Express Entry stream if the position they are hiring for falls in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) TEER 1, 2, 3

While rich in land and resources, the sprawling Yukon territory is no stranger to labour shortages due to its small population of just over 30,000 people.

Eligibility:

Express Entry Requirement

Yukon Express Entry is aligned with the federal Express Entry system. To be eligible for the stream, candidates must have an active profile in the Express Entry pool. To submit a profile to the Express Entry pool, applicants must be eligible for at least one of three federal Economic programs:

Federal Skilled Worker requires candidates to have, at minimum, a high school diploma, as well as at least one year of continuous full-time, skilled work experience. Work experience is considered skilled if obtained in a position at National Occupational Classification (NOC) TEER 1, 2, 3. Candidates must also demonstrate language proficiency in English or French consistent with Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7.

Canadian Experience Class has no minimum education requirement. CEC candidates must have a minimum of one year of full-time Canadian skilled work experience in the last three years. Work experience is considered skilled if obtained in a position at NOC TEER 1, 2, 3. Candidates must also demonstrate language proficiency in English or French consistent with CLB level 7 for work experience obtained at NOCTEER 1, 2 and CLB 5 for work experience obtained at NOC TEER 3.

Federal Skilled Trades has no minimum education requirement. FST candidates must have at least 2 years of full-time work experience in a skilled trade occupation. Candidates must also have either an offer of employment to work in a skilled trade in Canada or a certificate of qualification in their skilled trade issued by a Canadian authority. Candidates must also demonstrate language proficiency in English or French at CLB Level 5 for speaking and listening and CLB 4 for reading and writing.

Job Offer

Candidates must also have a full-time, permanent job offer from an eligible Yukon employer.

Settlement Funds

All candidates for the Yukon Express Entry stream must meet the settlement funds requirement as determined by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Employer Requirements

To be eligible to make a valid job offer to a foreign worker for the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP), the Yukon employer must meet certain requirements.

Job Offer Requirement

The employer must offer a full-time, indeterminate position with a wage that meets industry standards.

Business Requirements

The Yukon business must have been operating in Yukon for at least one year. If the business is a non-profit organization, the business must have been in operation for at least three years, and must have secured funding for at least one year following the application to the YNP. The business must also have current and valid licenses to operate in Yukon.

Recruitment Requirements

The employer must demonstrate that reasonable efforts were made to recruit a Canadian to fill the position prior to offering the position to a foreign national. Employers must meet specific advertising requirements, including advertising the position for at least four (4) weeks in at least two local and one national recruitment mediums.

Employers can apply to the Express Entry stream if the position they are hiring for falls in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) TEER 1, 2, 3

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and How it works 

The Federal Government of Canada has entered into bilateral agreements with provinces and territories (except Quebec and Nunavut) to allow the provinces and territories to nominate individuals for permanent residence based on the provinces' assessment of the nominees' ability to contribute to the economic growth and development of those provinces.

Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements, selecting applicants that

  • have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory
  • want to live in that province, and
  • want to become permanent residents of Canada

To obtain permanent residence via Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), you must go through two steps:

  1. You must decide where you want to live in Canada and apply to that province or territory for a stream that you're eligible for. SuperVisas can help you with it in this application.
  2. After a province or territory nominates you, you must apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence. The IRCC, a federal agency, will assess your application based on Canadian immigration law. If you have already obtained your nomination from a province or territory, please go to our program: Permanent Residence – Provincial Nominee Class.

Answer a few questions to find out if you'll be able to apply under Provincial Nominee Program.

Based on your answers, we will tell you what programs you may be eligible for, so be as accurate as you can.

How It Works

    Create An Account

    Create an account and either check your eligibility, or pick an application to start. We start by asking questions specific to the visa to ensure your eligibility.

    Confirmation Before Payment

    Our immigration consultants will check your answers and double-check your profile to confirm you meet the minimum requirements of a program. Only if you are eligible will we move you to the payment stage. At this time you must pay the SuperVisas fee. We are transparent in our process and pricing, and clearly list all the fees and processing times for your visa. We use Stripe for credit or debit card payment processing, which is secure and encrypted. Government fees are paid later when the completed application is submitted and once we can correctly calculate the various government fees due. It can be complicated, but we guide you through the process.
