Employers can hire skilled tradespersons under the YEE skilled Trades program if the employees are already accepted in the IRCC’s express entry pool.
How to apply? Employers can hire through the express entry stream if their vacant positions fall under the NOC TEER 0, 1, 2 OR 3. It has the following steps. The employer finds a qualified foreign national through Canada’s job bank or the Yukon Express Entry stream (under the YNP). The foreign national must already have an IRCC Express Entry profile. The employer has to complete the YEE application form together with the foreign national. The foreign national or employer has to submit the application along with all supporting documents to the Government of Yukon Immigration Unit by mail or courier. The federal government invites the foreign national to apply for permanent residence. Once the permanent residence application forms and supporting documents are submitted to IRCC, both the Yukon government and IRCC work together on verifying the information and documents and then IRCC gave the permanent residence visa to the foreign national.
