Saskatchewan INP Expands List Of Eligible In Demand Occupations
The two popular streams within the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program SNIP that do not require a job offer or work experience in Canada in order for a candidate to be eligible.
From 19 occupations to more than 200, the province of Saskatchewan has expanded the list of in-demand occupations associated with both its Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories.
One of these streams, the Express Entry sub-category, is for candidates who also have a profile in Canada federal Express Entry pool. Candidates in the Express Entry pool who obtain a provincial nomination through the SINP Express Entry sub-category are awarded an additional 600 points towards their ranking score, effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
For those who are not in the Express Entry pool, the other stream, the In- Demand occupation Sub Category is available. If nominated, these candidates would apply for permanent residence outside of Express Entry, which is generally slower by comparison.
A high-skilled occupation is one that is rated skill level A or B or Skill Type 0 under Canada National Occupational Classification, or NOC. Both immigration sub-categories require work experience in an eligible high-skilled occupation, among other criteria.
Rather than listing the occupations that are now eligible, the SINP is only listing the 130 occupations that are excluded.This leaves 218 occupations that are now be eligible.
The first step towards pursuing a nomination through Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category is to submit an Express Entry profile into the federal pool.
In order to be considered under Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand Sub-Category, candidates must first create a profile in Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system.
