Labour market

The Labour Market Programs & Services Unit of Advanced Education works on strategies and policies to shape Yukon's workforce. The goal is to help Yukon-based organizations find the staff, the information or the partners they need in order to run their initiatives and grow Yukon's labour force capacity.

Our partners include:

  • labour organizations
  • women's groups
  • youth
  • private sector representatives
  • non-profit organizations
  • communities
  • First Nations
  • the federal government

Labour Market Framework

The Labour Market Framework (LMF) is a 10-year initiative, covering the 2010-20 period. It is a structure through which priorities for Yukon’s labour market are established.

The Framework has four strategies, each with corresponding action plans.

The Framework’s vision is: “An inclusive and adaptable labour market that meets the demands of a strong, diversified economy and provides opportunity for a better quality of life for Yukoners.” Each strategy developed under the Framework supports this vision.

The 2018-20 Action Plans have been developed and will be posted to this site shortly.

For further information on the action plans or the Labour Market Framework, please call us at 867-667-5906 or toll free in Yukon 1-800-661-0408, ext. 5906 or email
