Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program Announces List of Occupations for International Skilled Worker Category
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has finally released information on the changes to the international skilled worker category coming into effect on January 2, 2014. The SINP will accept 250 applications in 2014 from applicants without an offer of employment whose high skilled occupation is in demand in Saskatchewan. These occupations must have “good” or “fair” employment prospects as per Saskatchewan’s Detailed Occupational Outlook (2013-2017).
Unlike the Federal Skilled Worker program, which only has 24 eligible occupations, the SINP’s list of higher skilled occupations with good/fair prospects is over 200. The list is varied from managerial occupations, business and finance, natural sciences, medical technicians, teachers, to the skilled trades. However with only 250 applications being accepted next year, it is best to apply early.
