Yukon Business Nominee Program

The Yukon Business Nominee Program nominates individuals for immigration who demonstrate proven business skills, intend to establish themselves in Yukon and want to contribute to the province’s economy by owning/operating a business in the province of Yukon.

Currently, Yukon is in search of individuals that have gained a minimum 5 years of previous business experience and can create a new business, partner with a current business or purchase and operate an existing establishment in order to further develop the production and marketing of goods, services, exports, technology or research in the province’s priority sectors.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must have previously gained 5 years of senior management or direct entrepreneurial experience in the same or related field as the proposed business. The applicant must also submit a resume or curriculum vitae, letters of recommendation, financial statements and other documents that demonstrates the applicant has received previous experience. (Note: working in a managerial role or as employee of a corporation may not necessarily provide the proper skills needed to operate your own business)
  • Must possess a net worth of at $250,000 CDN which includes at least $150,000 of liquid assets. Liquid assets may refer to cash, demand deposits with a financial institution, term deposits, tax shelters convertible to cash, and readily marketable investments including publicly traded stocks and bonds.
  • Must have previously paid a visit to Yukon and gained a general understanding of its business and social environment. During this time, applicants are required to meet with a program officer of the Business and Industry Development Branch.
  • Must have the proper language skills in either French or English to successfully establish a business in Yukon
