Saskatchewan High-in-Demand Occupation List 2024

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is one of the popular immigration programs for moving to Canada. Through the SINP, Saskatchewan invites residency applications from non-Canadians who want to live and work in Saskatchewan and nominates successful applicants to the federal government for permanent residency in Canada.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program is only one of the steps toward becoming a permanent resident in Saskatchewan. All eligible applicants must also apply for residency through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Saskatchewan PNP has these major skilled immigration streams:

International Skilled Worker

  • Employment Offer
  • Tech Talent Pathway
  • Occupation In-Demand
  • Saskatchewan Express Entry
  • Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot

Saskatchewan Work Experience

  • Skilled Worker With Existing Work Permit
  • Semi-skilled Agriculture Worker with Existing Work Permit
  • Health Professionals
  • Hospitality Sector Project
  • Long-Haul Truck Driver Project
  • Students

Note: In 2019, SINP made a major change in their International Skilled Worker - Occupation in-demand stream. Rather than candidates having work experience in an in-demand occupation to be eligible for this stream, candidates must not have experience in any of the professions that are in Saskatchewan Excluded Occupations lists. 

Saskatchewan PNPs Occupation in-demand stream is not aligned with the Express entry program. Candidates are not required to have an Express Entry profile to apply for provincial nomination through this stream. Also having a job offer is not mandatory to apply for Saskatchewan provincial nomination.

The process to apply for Saskatchewan PNP through Occupation in-demand stream

Saskatchewan PNP occupation in-demand stream uses an Expression of Interest (EOI) system to manage all the applications. In this system, all the profiles are assigned scores based on their work experience, age, language skills, connection to the province, etc. Based on these scores in the SINP Points Calculator, profiles are ranked in the SINP EOI pool.

The highest-ranked profiles are then invited to submit their application for provincial nomination through frequently held Saskatchewan PNP draws.

Once you are invited to apply, you will need to provide proof to support the EOI points you have claimed. To remain eligible for a nomination, you must achieve the minimum points of the EOI selection through which you received your ITA.
