Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program updates its in-demand list of occupations

In-Demand Occupations list now consists of 33 eligible occupations, 7 of which do not require licensing

 

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program announced an update to its in-demand list of occupations on July 3, which applies to its International Skilled Worker – Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories.

 

The following are key features of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) International Skilled Worker sub-categories:

 

  • International Skilled Worker – Express Entry
    • This ‘enhanced’ sub-category is aligned with the federal Express Entry. Therefore, candidates in this sub-category need to meet the eligibility requirements to enter the Express Entry pool.
    • No job offer is required.
    • Applications are received on a first-come, first-served basis from eligible candidates in the Express Entry pool.
    • Successful candidates obtain an additional 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
    • Candidates need to score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid.
    • Candidates must have a minimum level of work experience related to their field of study or training in a skilled occupation (NOC 0, A, or B) that is considered to be in-demand in Saskatchewan.
  • International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand
    • Applications to this ‘base’ sub-category are received on a first-come, first-served basis and are processed entirely outside Express Entry.
    • No job offer is required.
    • Applicants need to score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) point assessment grid.
    • Applicants need to have at least one-year of paid work experience in the past ten years related to their field of education or training, in a skilled occupation (NOC 0, A, or B) that is considered to be in-demand in Saskatchewan.

 

 

Updated In-Demand Occupations

 

Of the 33 in-demand occupations on the updated list, seven occupations do not require candidates to obtain specific professional licensure. The other 26 occupations do, however, require professional licensure from the relevant organizations designated by the Government of Saskatchewan. In many cases, the licensure process may be completed from outside Canada.

Recent activity from the SINP

 

The SINP’s Occupations In-Demand sub-category opened once on June 7 and accepted 400 new applications also on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

A successful nomination under this sub-category results in a provincial nomination certificate being issued to the applicant.

 

The SINP’s Express Entry sub-category has opened twice in 2018 and closed within hours of reaching its application thresholds. In order to apply under this category, candidates must first submit a profile to the Express Entry pool.
