The Saskatchewan Express Entry and Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand streams both require candidates to have at least 12-months of full-time work experience in one of the occupations included on the in-demand list.

SINP Express Entry & Occupations In-Demand

The SINP In-Demand Occupations List applies to the following programs:

  1. Saskatchewan Express Entry: This program requires candidates to have an active Express Entry profile along with at least 12-months of full-time, skilled work experience in one of the province’s in-demand occupations.
  2. Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand: This program does not require candidates to have an active Express Entry profile, but it does require at least 12-months of full-time, skilled work experience in one of the province’s in-demand occupations. This program requires candidates to show proficiency in either English or French at the Canadian Language Benchmark of Level 4.

Please note that both of these programs use an Expression of Interest (EOI) system to select candidates. Interested candidates must first create an online profile. Only those with the most competitive profiles will be invited to apply to the PNP.
