In a major overhaul of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), the in-demand occupation list associated with its two popular immigration streams- Express Entry & In-demand occupation is now open to accommodate over than 200 occupations.  

It was made possible by replacing the list of eligible occupations, popularly known as the In-Demand Occupation List, with a list of excluded occupations instead. It will allow the authorities to release only the list of occupations that are excluded from consideration, thereby seeing a jump from 19 to 218 number of eligible in-demand occupations in Saskatchewan. 

The list of eligible occupations now covers a diverse field of high-skilled occupations, from managerial and professional to technical and skilled trades, and represent a variety of industries and sectors. Also, within a week of major change in SINP, back-to-back three Saskatchewan Expression of Interest (EOI) draws were conducted which invited over 1,930 eligible candidates that represented one among 192 different occupations including:

  • civil and chemical engineers,
  • medical radiation technologists, 
  • psychologists, 
  • information systems analysts and consultants
  • human resource professionals, 
  • computer network technicians, 
  • legal assistants, 
  • educational counselors, 
  • natural and applied science researchers.
  • financial managers 

The EOI system followed by SINP issues a score to eligible candidates based on their education, work experience, language proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan. Further, the candidates in SINP’s EOI pool with the highest EOI scores are invited through regular draws to apply for a provincial nomination.
