Yukon will launch a new immigration pilot program

On September 26, 2019, Yukon announced the launch of the Yukon Community Pilot. The program is aimed to meet the economic development and labour market needs of the Territory. The pilot will become a new stream of the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP). The Yukon Community Pilot will provide nominees with a work permit that will be community-specific, rather than an employer-specific. Nominees will be able to work for several employers within the same community. The program is planned for January 2020 and will include such communities as Whitehorse, Watson Lake, Dawson City, Haines Junction, Carmacks, and Carcross. Yukon is going to get up to 50 new allocations for the YNP from the federal government. Since April 1, 2018, to August 15, 2019, the government of Yukon nominated 241 candidates through the Yukon Nominee Program (YNP). #Yukon, #YNP, #Rural_immigration, #PNP
