Saskatchewan PNP: Announces the Expansion of In-demand Occupations List

The Saskatchewan province has increased the In-demand occupations list that connected with both of its In-Demand Occupation and Express Entry sub-categories, from 19 professions to higher than 200 professions.

These are two famous streams in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (S.I.N.P) that do not need an employment offer or Canadian work experience for an applicant to be eligible.

The sub-category Saskatchewan’s Express Entry is for applicants who also have a profile in Canadian Express Entry pool.

Applicants in the pool of Express Entry who receive a provincial nomination by the S.I.N.P’s sub-category Express Entry are granted a supplementary 600 points towards their score, subsequently guaranteeing an ITA for Canada PR.

Another stream, the Sub-Category In-Demand Occupation, is accessible to applicants who are not in the pool of Express Entry. If nominated, these applicants would appeal for Canada PR outside of Express Entry, which is usually slower by comparing with Express Entry.

Both sub-categories of immigration need work experience in a qualified high-skilled profession, along with other criteria.

A high-skilled profession is one that is considered skill level A, B or Skill Type 0 below the Canadian National Occupational Classification, or N.O.C.

Latest Update About Saskatchewan’s In-demand Occupations List

Rather than preparing the professions that are now eligible, the S.I.N.P is only listing the 129 professions that are omitted.

This leaves higher than 200 professions that may now be qualified. Both Express Entry applicants and individuals contemplating immigrating to Saskatchewan province by the Sub-Category In-Demand Occupation must enroll a separate EOI with the S.I.N.P.

Opening these streams to several more professions has the possibility to profit Saskatchewan’s labor market as well as the extremely skilled applicants who dream of living in Canada and whose professions are now in the list.

The initial step towards seeking a nomination by Saskatchewan’s sub-category Express Entry is to provide a profile into the federal Express Entry pool.

To be counted below Sub-Category Occupation In-Demand of Saskatchewan, applicants must first produce a profile in Expression of Interest system of Saskatchewan.
