Immigration Yukon

Immigrating to Yukon
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), a department of the Government of Canada (“federal government”), decides who can immigrate to Canada. For more information about federal immigration programs, visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s immigration web pages.

The Government of Yukon administers immigration programs in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. This partnership allows Yukon to nominate qualified foreign nationals to the federal government for permanent residency.
