The Yukon PNP is one of Canada’s three territories and it shares a border with the U.S.A. state of Alaska. Like the Northwest Territories the Yukon is not densely populated, which may mean that there are lots of opportunities for Canadian immigrants. The Yukon PNP has various programs under which an individual may qualify.

The Yukon PNP Business Programs

Yukon Express Entry (YEE).

Candidates who are eligible to enter the federal Express Entry pool and are interested in living and working in Yukon may apply to the Yukon Express Entry stream (YEE). Yukon added an Express Entry stream to its existing immigration programs in March 2015. This stream allows the province to nominate individuals who are already in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool and who have the necessary education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other factors to help them settle successfully and integrate into Yukon’s labour market and communities.


Yukon PNP applicants with the intention of investing at least $150,000 CAD into a business venture in the Yukon may qualify under this program if they have the following:

A minimum net worth of, at a minimum $250,000 CAD
Made at least one visit to the Yukon before the submission of their application
Have basic proficiency in English or French
Have the required experience, skills and education to carry out their business plan.
