Taking the decision to immigrate to Canada is a brave and exciting prospect for hopeful foreigners. Where to live is a massive part of that choice. The likelihood of your applications success could hinge on just that. Considering a move to Yukon, Canada with a nomination under the Provincial Nomination Program</a> will almost guarantee permanent residency.
For those with a little adventure in their hearts, Yukon is a dream come true. Equally as and in some cases more beautiful than the rest of Canada, the rugged and largely unnoticed Yukon territory offers snow capped peaks, deep blue lakes and hundreds of miles of untouched forests and rivers teaming with fish and wildlife, without the crowds. While everyone and their mother are exploring Banff, crowding around one mountain sheep to snap a picture or jostling for a good position for their Instagram post at beautiful lookouts, you could be witnessing the magnificence of a giant moose crossing a deserted road, taking in breathtaking views without another human in sight and best of all, catching the northern lights nearly every night during snowy white winters.
Over 80% of Yukon’s population lives in the capital city of Whitehorse, in a province roughly the size of France. This gives you an idea of how wild and remote the rest of the province is. Road trips and exploration like nowhere else in the world are waiting. Discover the story of the gold rush mania, the history of the first nations and live through days that don’t end.
