Canada Citizenship Immigration Services

Formerly known as the Yukon Territory, Yukon is found on the north-western side of Canada and is an area of high plateaus and mountains. To the east it shares boundaries with the Northwest Territories, British Columbia to the south and Alaska to the west. Immigrants who want to make the move to Yukon can do so with the Yukon Provincial Nominee Program (Yukon PNP).

Yukon is especially known for its abundance of mineral wealth, sparse population and large areas of unspoiled wilderness. Over two-thirds of the total population in Yukon live in Whitehorse, the capital city. Nearly one-third of the population is of aboriginal origin. The rest of the population is comprised of European descendants or of mixed aboriginal and immigrant descent.

Yukon Provincial Nominee Program (Yukon PNP)

Due to the fact that Yukon is very sparsely populated, it maintains plenty of opportunities for skilled and semi-skilled immigrants to call it home.

The main immigration program is the Yukon Provincial Nominee Program. The Yukon PNP has various streams under which an individual may qualify for immigration:
