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 on July 27, 2017.
This sub-category is for skilled workers who want to live and work in Saskatchewan; whose names are in the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Express Entry Pool; and finally who meet the sub-category criteria.
According to Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, the criteria can change at any time, but the program will use what was on the website at the time the complete application were received.
In updated in-demand occupations list, 20 occupations do not require any specific professional licensure but the other 23 occupations do require some form of professional licensure.
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.
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.
600 new applications will be accepted during this intake period.
