September 25, 2019 – The government of Saskatchewan has come up with another new decision to open its Express Entry and Occupation in-demand immigration sub-categories to candidates having work experience in more than 200 high skilled professions.
This opportunity to candidates in 200+ skilled occupations is one of the major developments for the province’s immigration nominee program (SINP).
Under the Occupation in-demand sub-category, neither there requires a job offer or any Canadian work experience to be eligible for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from Saskatchewan. There needs a one year of skilled work experience in a high-skilled occupation in Saskatchewan.
SINP actually replaced its list of eligible occupations (In-demand occupation list) with a list of excluded occupation list. With this, the eligible in-demand occupation has seen a rise from 19 to 218 allowing candidates with high-skilled work experience who had previously excluded.
Eligible professionals are now from multiple high-skilled occupations ranging from managerial to technical to skilled trades from a variety of industry sectors including the Information Technology profiles as follows:
- Information systems analysts;
- Database analysts and data administrators;
- Computer network technicians;
- Information systems testing technicians;
- Software engineers and designers;
- Computer programmers and interactive media developers;
- Web designers and developers
