The Critical Impact Worker program falls under the Skilled Worker Program of the Yukon Nominee Program. Like the Skilled Worker category, this one is also employer-driven. The category is designed to help Yukon employers find and nominate international skilled workers eligible for job positions, which play vital role in the Yukon economy.
With the help of the provincial program, Yukon employers nominate the appropriate skills required for positions, that usually lacked by local workers. The Critical Impact worker program is basically instrumental in attracting foreign skilled workers for entry level positions in the hospitality and other service sectors. In other words, the category plays a vital role in meeting the province’s need of semi-skilled workers.
Let’s have a look at the eligibility criteria for the applicants of the Critical Impact Worker category:
- Applicants must have a permanent, regular employment offer from an employer based in Yukon.
- The occupations/jobs offered to applicants must fall under the levels of ‘C’ and ‘D’ of the National Occupational Classification Matrix.
- Applicants must possess temporary work permits. They must also have worked in the offered positions for about six months. Else, they must score minimum points of 55 in the Yukon Nominee Program’s pre-assessment.
- Applicants must have adequate financial/settlement supports in the province.
- Applicants must have required amount of work experience.
- Applicants must have the sufficient proficiency in English or French.
