YK pauses Yukon Nominee Program offering pathway to citizenship for international students

A Yukon Nominee Program has been paused by the territory. The program offered a pathway to citizenship for Yukon University’s international graduates upon securing employment. YukonU Provost Shelagh Rowles described the pause as both sudden and disappointing, adding that the university learned about the pause at the same time as the general public. However, Rowles said that she does not expect the change to have much impact on international recruitment, as the university’s opportunities “are very solid and will be attractive to students.”
