SINP International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand Sub-category is Now Open!

A couple of weeks ago, the SINP Express Entry Sub-category was opened to accept new applications.  Here's another good news: SINP International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand Sub-Category is now open as well!


SINP International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand Sub-category is Now Open!

You may qualify for this sub-category if you live outside Canada or have proof of legal status in Canada, are not a refugee claimant and:
  • Score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid;
  • Have a language score of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4.
  • Employers and regulatory bodies may ask for language scores that are higher than CLB 4;
  • Have completed post-secondary education, training or apprenticeship that’s comparable to the Canadian education system of at least one year in length. You should have earned a diploma, certificate or degree with this.
  • Have at least one-year work experience in the past 10 years:
  • In your field of education or training occupation, and
  • In a high skilled occupation in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Matrix level "A", "B" or "0" that’s in-demand in Saskatchewan.
  • Show proof of Professional Status or Licensure (for regulated occupations or those with professional certification standards in Canada and/or Saskatchewan) if required for your occupation. Please see the SINP In-Demand Occupation List for these requirements. If this proof is required, your application will be held for processing until such proof is provided - all other required documents must be included in your application or your application will be returned as incomplete and your application fee will not be refunded.
  • Have proof of settlement funds and a settlement plan.
Just like in the SINP Express Entry Sub-category, you must show proof of Professional Status or Licensure (for regulated occupations or those with professional certification standards in Canada and/or Saskatchewan) if required for your occupation. If your occupation is regulated in Saskatchewan and you want to immigrate to Canada via SINP, this should be your first step.
