Saskatchewan Significantly Expands Occupation In-Demand List for SINP

The province of Saskatchewan has announced significant changes to its Occupations In-Demand list, used for both the Saskatchewan Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams of the International Skilled Worker category. The streams will now accept applicants with one year of continuous work experience in any skilled NOC, as long as it does not appear on the SINP Excluded Occupation List.

Get Assessment

The expansion of Saskatchewan’s Occupations In-Demand list means many more people will become eligible to apply to both streams, and walk away with a nomination from the province for Canadian permanent residence! Those with an active Express Entry profile who are selected for a nomination will receive 600 additional points to their comprehensive ranking system score, virtually guaranteeing their selection in the next draw. 

Why Choose Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker category is aimed at foreign nationals with skilled work experience, who can meet the province’s labour market needs. A huge draw to these streams are that they have relatively low requirements for language proficiency and demand no previous connection to the province. For international workers, this more generous criteria means more applicants will have a greater chance at a successful application!
