Express Entry Program

The Yukon Express Entry Stream is for skilled workers who have a job offer from a Yukon employer in a skilled position (NOC 0, A or B) and who have a current Express Entry profile.


• the requirements for both the employer and the foreign national are the same as those listed for the Skilled Worker program, plus:

  • the foreign national must show settlement funds to support themselves and their families upon arrival in Canada

  • the foreign national must be in the federal Express Entry Pool

• You would want to consider this program if you have an Express Entry profile, but your CRS points are not high enough to get an invitation to apply for Permanent Residence through the federal system. You will have much faster overall processing if you use the Yukon Express Entry stream rather than the Yukon Skilled worker stream.•
