Occupations In-Demand sub-category Announced by Saskatchewan Government

The government of Saskatchewan declared Skilled International Worker’s Occupations In-Demand sub-category for Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) and the applications are open now. For the year 2018, it is the initial intake.

Applications received for Occupations In-Demand sub-category under the Skilled International Worker were purely based on first-come, first-served.

There is no requirement of the Job offer to submit the application and to apply for this sub-category. This sub-category is not combined with federal Express Entry, so it is considered as a “base” program.

Applicants who complete successful nomination of this Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee issued with Program Provincial nomination certificate. Provincial nomination certificate is important to apply for permanent resident status by the applicant along with family members who are eligible to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

In 2017, it took place on August 2, 2017, 35 eligible occupations were listed which are new in-demand occupations by Government of Saskatchewan. It is filled within one day when the August intake began for 1,200 applicants.

Now It is going to accept only 400 applications, so it is assumed that In Demand sub-category is going to fill quickly because it is so familiar.

Attorney David Cohen, senior partner at the Campbell Cohen Law firm says, “We are pleased to see the Saskatchewan province proceed to make use of its Provincial Nominee Program to fill requirements of the labor market and grant a pathway to PR of Canada.”

To be eligible for this sub-category, applicants should meet below criteria:
