  • Solid English language skills, oral and written, are a must-have skill set. English proficiency must be as strong as if it were your first language.

  • Before the start of your work term, you must have completed (within the last 10 years) at least one year of postsecondary studies. If you are in Quebec*, you must have completed two years of college-level studies or one year of university.

I get up in the morning, and the sun’s been up all night! It bathes a mountain in pink light. That’s what I see in the morning, on my way to work. You cannot imagine the stillness of wide open spaces until you’ve set foot in Yukon! You really feel alive here! With every step you take, nature is all around you.


Nadia Lebel, from Drummondville, Québec, to Whitehorse, Yukon, QC
