Sept 18: Saskatchewan has introduced major expansions to the list of occupations eligible for the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams

Saskatchewan PNP In-Demand Occupations List with 218 new Occupations

Saskatchewan has opened its immigration program to a wider range of occupations, giving more people around the world a shot at settling in a province that offers plenty of job opportunities and high living standards.

SINP expanded the list of in-demand occupations associated with both its Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories, from 19 occupations to more than 200.

“Opening these streams to many more occupations has the potential to benefit Saskatchewan’s labour market as well as the highly skilled candidates who dream of a life in Canada and whose occupations are now on the list.”

 

Both immigration sub-categories (Occupations In-Demand (OID) and Express Entry (EE) program) require work experience in an eligible high-skilled occupation, among other criteria.

A high-skilled occupation is one that is rated skill level A or B or Skill Type 0 under Canada’s National Occupational Classification, or NOC.

Rather than listing the occupations that are now eligible, the SINP is only listing the 129 occupations that are excluded.

This leaves more than 200 occupations that may now be eligible.

Potential candidates may be outside Canada, or in Canada with legal status, and a job offer is not required.

Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand: Eligibility

In order to be eligible for the Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand sub-category, potential candidates need at least one year of high-skilled work experience in the past 10 years in their field of education or training and in an occupation at NOC level 0, A, or B.

The Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) International Skilled Worker category targets skilled workers in key occupations are as follows:-
