Yukon Business Nominee Program

Business Program Overview

The Yukon Business Nominee Program operates under an agreement with the Government of Canada and allows the Government of Yukon to nominate for immigration to Canada those individuals with proven business skills who want to live in Yukon, and who want to own and operate a business and make a significant contribution to the community.

Yukon Business Nominee Program is not an "investment program", but participants are required to contribute money to their business to ensure its viability. For individuals who are interested in making passive investments, the Government of Canada offers an immigrant investor program. For more information please refer to

Yukon is seeking people with entrepreneurial skills who can participate in Yukon’s business community and help expand and diversify our economy. Yukon will be of particular interest to those persons who savour the outdoors and want to be part of the future development of the territory.
