Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category Reopens With Expanded Occupations List

The International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has reopened with an expanded list of 43 in-demand occupations. This sub-category is aligned with Canada’s Express Entry immigration selection system.

Eligible candidates in the Express Entry pool with work experience in one of these occupations may be able to submit an application for a provincial nomination under the SINP, resulting in 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points being awarded and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence being issued during a subsequent draw from the pool.

The SINP International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and applicants do not need a job offer in order to apply.

Up to 600 new applications will be accepted during this intake period.

 

The new in-demand occupations list

Of the 43 in-demand occupations on the updated list, 20 occupations do not require any specific professional licensure. The other 23 occupations do require some form of professional licensure.

The previous list included 17 occupations. Therefore, some candidates in the Express Entry pool who were not previously eligible to apply to the SINP may now be eligible to do so.
