Saskatchewan: Targeted occupation PNP draw & changes to in-demand list

In a draw on April 17th, the Saskatchewan PNP invited new candidates with experience in four specific occupations. After inviting these candidates, the province immediately removed all four occupations from the SINP In-Demand Occupations List.

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:

  • NOC 2154: Land surveyors
  • NOC 2255: Technical occupations in geomatics and meteorology
  • NOC 6342: Tailors, dressmakers, furriers, and milliners
  • NOC 7332: Appliance servicers and repairers

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:

Overview: The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

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 Express Entry requires candidates to have an active profile in the federal Express Entry system, as well as at least one year of skilled work experience in an SINP in-demand occupation.

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.
