A list of additional 43 in-demand occupations is now available in the International Skilled Worker – Express Entry, a sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). This sub-category is aligned with Canada’s Express Entry immigration selection system.
Resulting in an award of 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence during a subsequent draw from the pool, eligible candidates in the Express Entry pool with work experience in one of occupations below may be qualified to apply for a provincial nomination under the SINP.
In an effort to fill labor needs, up to 600 new applications will be accepted during this intake period. And the best news about this is that the applicants don’t need a job offer to apply. The SINP International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category operates on a first-come, first-served basis. And the requirements for the program are: proof of legal status, if currently living in Canada; an Express Entry Profile Number and Job Seeker Validation Code; score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid.
Also, to be eligible, you must provide language test results from a designated testing agency that match the language level declared in the Express Entry profile; have completed at least one year of post-secondary education or training which is comparable to the Canadian education system and which has resulted in a degree, diploma, or certificate; have a minimum level of work experience related to their field of education or training in a highly skilled occupation (NOC 0, A, or B) that is considered to be in-demand in Saskatchewan (See in-demand occupations list below). NOC means National Occupation Classification.
