The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) conducted two rounds of invitations on April 17th. The first for the Saskatchewan Express Entry stream and the second for the Occupations In-Demand stream. Both rounds of invitations were limited to candidates with work experience in one of the four following occupations:
Immediately after inviting these candidates, Saskatchewan updated the SINP In-Demand Occupations List, removing the same four NOC codes without any new additions. The current, up-to-date list is available here:
NOC Code Occupations
0423 Managers in social and community services
1311 Accounting Technicians
2174 Computer Programmers and interactive media developers
2251 Architectural technologists and technicians
3211 Medical laboratory technologists
3215 Medical radiation technologists
3216 Medical sonographers
4212 Social and community service workers
4214 Early childhood educators
4215 Instructors of persons with disabilities
5254 Program leaders and instructors in recreation, sport and fitness
6331 Meat Cutters
7312 Heavy-duty equipment mechanics/technicians
7321 Automotive service technicians, truck and bus mechanics and mechanical repairers
7322 Motor vehicle body repairers
This is the first time Saskatchewan has used the Expression of Interest (EOI) system to invite specific NOC codes beyond those included in the in-demand list.
SINP is a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) organized by the province of Saskatchewan, allowing the province to nominate hopeful immigrants for Canadian permanent resident status.
SINP is made up of many different streams and categories, but has two streams that are popular with candidates outside of Canada: Saskatchewan Express Entry and Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand. These streams do not require a person to have a connection to the province in terms of work experience, education, or a job offer, which is why these programs are so popular with those living overseas.
Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand does not require an Express Entry profile and has lower language requirements than Express Entry. However, this program also requires at least one year of skilled work experience in an SINP in-demand occupation.
