Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand Immigration Category Reopened on 04 October for 500 New Applications
On 04 October 2016, The International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) opened to accept 500 new applications.
This category allows the skilled workers possessing experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan to file application for a provincial nomination certificate following which they can apply for the Canadian permanent residence.
In this case, candidates are not required to hold a job offer in order to apply under this category. However, applicants are expected to be highly-skilled in an in-demand occupation available in the province
During the present year, the SINP sub-category reopened a few times occasionally. The most recent was on 30 August when the intake of the applications was filled within two days or so.
The International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a ‘base’ sub-category, which implies it is not in agreement with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
All those individuals who are not eligible for Express Entry due to language ability as well as those who are eligible but have not received an invitation to apply for PR so far are free to apply under SINP sub-category.
Note – On the morning of 04 October 2016, SINP website stated that the Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand Immigration Category has reopened to accept fresh applications.
But, when the news team of Visas Abroad contacted the SINP, the staff confirmed that there was some error in updating that notice, the Express Entry Sub-category has not reopened at all.
