Local businesses are supported by a strong, motivated labor pool with the highest workforce participation rate in Canada. The Yukon government and several First Nation governments work to ensure Yukoners have the skills necessary to fill the needs of local businesses. The Yukon Nominee Program helps to fill any gaps in the workforce with skilled workers, adding productive people to both the labor force and the local population. Yukon also offers financial incentives to its new and developing businesses.
With a strategic location that’s accessible to both Asia and the US, high-speed internet access, roads that are open year-round, and multiple airports, Yukon is more connected than ever. Its GDP, population, labor market, retail sales, and tourism impact are all growing, making it a great place to open a business.
