Yukon pauses Whitehorse-based applications for the Yukon Nominee Program

The government of Yukon has announced a temporary pause in accepting Whitehorse-based applications for the Yukon Nominee Program. This measure is intended to streamline efforts in processing existing applications. However, the program will continue to accept applications for nominees in rural Yukon communities. The temporary suspension of applications from Whitehorse is a proactive step to manage the current volume of submissions. Between January 1 and May 6, 2024, the Yukon Nominee Program received 590 applications. As of May 6, 107 of these nominations have been processed, leaving 483 pending. This exceeds the 430 nominee allocation set by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for Yukon in 2024. By pausing new applications, resources can be reallocated to process existing ones and minimize delays. The Government of Yukon expects to resume accepting applications from Whitehorse employers in 2025
