Canada Permanent Residency options via Yukon Nominee Program 

The YNP – Yukon Nominee Program is a Canada PNP of the Yukon Territory. It aims to attract overseas workers and entrepreneurs globally who possess the motivation, resources, and skills for boosting Yukon’s economy. The population of a mere 30,000 plus has created a dire need of overseas skilled workers in its labor market for filling skilled as well as unskilled positions.
