1 Comment


“The International Skilled Worker: Occupations In-Demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) reopened the morning of Tuesday, August 30, 2016.”

This SINP sub-category permits skilled workers with involvement in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan to make an application for a provincial nomination certificate, which is then trailed by an application for Canadian permanent residence. Candidates don’t require a job offer to make an application. Up to 700 new applications for migration to Canada might be accepted in this admission.

This sub-class just recently opened on June 21, 2016, before filling rapidly. From that time until today, the administration of Saskatchewan’s site read that this sub-category had acknowledged the maximum number of applications for 2016. Notwithstanding, the way that this sub-category is currently open for new applications recommends that application admission amounts can change frequently. .

Among other qualification necessities, candidates must be highly skilled in a sought after occupation in the province. The list at present contains 21 occupations across various industries, eminently in engineering, trades, horticulture, health care services, and IT. A full rundown of sought after occupations may be found below.

Minimum Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible under the Occupations In-Demand sub-category, candidates must:

  • If currently residing in Canada, applicants must have proof of legal status
  • Achieve a minimum language score of Canadian Language Benchmark 4
  • Have at least one year of completed tertiary education or training equivalent to the Canadian education system

  • Have proof of eligibility for Saskatchewan licensure if their profession is regulated in Saskatchewan and mandatory certification or licensing
  • Proof pf settlement funds and a settlement plan
