Navigating the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) – International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand

Are you a skilled professional looking for opportunities in Saskatchewan, Canada? The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) offers pathways for international skilled workers to settle and work in the province. Here’s an overview of the International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand stream to help you get started.

Overview: Effective May 1, 2024, the SINP updated its Excluded Occupation List for the Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry subcategories. A significant addition is the launch of the International Healthcare Worker Expression of Interest Pool, facilitating connections between healthcare workers and Saskatchewan healthcare employers.

This sub-category targets skilled workers who:

  • Lack of a job offer in Saskatchewan but possess high skills in an in-demand occupation.
  • Intended to establish permanent residency in Saskatchewan.
  • Meet the specified criteria, subject to potential changes.

How to Apply: To be eligible, applicants must pay a non-refundable $350 application fee online, among other requirements:

  • Reside outside of Canada or hold legal status within Canada.
  • Score at least 60 points out of 110 on the SINP point assessment grid.
  • Attain a language score of at least 4 in Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4.
  • Hold post-secondary education, training, or apprenticeship equivalent to Canadian standards.
  • Accumulate at least one year of full-time paid work experience in a high-skilled, in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan.
  • Demonstrate settlement funds and a settlement plan.

Expression of Interest (EOI) System: Applicants must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to enter the pool of eligible candidates. The points scored in the EOI profile determine the likelihood of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Candidates with higher scores stand a better chance of receiving an ITA.

It’s crucial to provide accurate information, as misrepresentation can result in penalties, including suspension from the SINP for up to two years.

Assessment Rating: Candidates must score at least 60 points out of 110 on the Point Assessment Grid. Points are allocated based on education, work experience, language ability, age, and connections to Saskatchewan.

Application Process: After receiving an ITA, follow the guidelines for the application process, ensuring all required documents are submitted accurately. Incomplete applications may lead to closure, necessitating reapplication.

Using an Immigration Representative: While not mandatory, applicants can engage immigration representatives who are lawyers in Canada or licensed by the Government of Saskatchewan.
