Making the decision to immigrate to Canada is a brave and exciting prospect for hopeful foreigners. Where to live is an important part of that choice. The likelihood of your applications being successful could depend on just that.
The Canadian government has launched another exciting community initiative to help people immigrate to Canada! The New Yukon Community Pilot is a new Canadian immigration pathway, launched in January 2020 under the Yukon Nominee Program, which allows foreign workers to live and work in Canada without a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This means faster processing and an opportunity to Work in Canada for up to 2 years!
This new pilot will run for 3 years and is designed to help boost the local economy of seven participating Yukon communities.
Yukon is located in northwestern Canada and is the smallest of Canada’s three territories. Life in the Yukon is perfect for you if you are seeking a close-knit community lifestyle in one of the world’s most beautiful places to call home. The Yukon is home to Kluane National Park, where you can visit Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, as well as the beautiful alpine, glacier-fed Emerald Lake, and let’s face it, who could resist the spectacular natural light show, known as Northern Lights on display from mid-August to mid-April!
Life in the Yukon Territory moves at a slower pace in most Canadian provinces and the cost of living can be considerably higher, however the higher wage offerings more than make up the difference. For example, the median hourly wage in Whitehorse, Yukon is $25.50 compared to the national average which is around $16 per hour.
