Which Provincial Nominee Programs Are Paused?

Whitehorse-Based Nominee Program Paused Temporarily

The Government of Yukon has temporarily paused Whitehorse-based applications for the Yukon Nominee Program due to overwhelming demand. The program has seen 590 applications already this year, and there are just 430 nominations allocated to the program for 2024. So, this pause will allow the territory’s processing team to prioritise existing applications to minimise delays for applicants. 

It is unlikely that this program will reopen in 2024, however, the Government of Yukon expects to resume accepting applications from Whitehorse employers in 2025. It is expected that the hospitality and tourism industries will be hardest hit by these changes.

Applications for rural-community candidates who live outside of Whitehorse in the Yukon will continue to be accepted and processed. 

New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream Paused Due To High Demand

New Brunswick has also temporarily paused expressions of interest for its Skilled Worker stream, from May 17, 2024. This pause is also in response to high demand for the program.

The New Brunswick Skilled Worker stream is for candidates who have received an offer of employment from a New Brunswick employer and who have met other eligibility criteria.
