Saskatchewan makes 279 more jobs eligible for immigrant nominee program
Saskatchewan is broadening the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) by incorporating 279 intermediate and lower-skilled occupations into the list of eligible jobs for permanent residency applications.
The expansion is poised to positively impact various economic sectors in Saskatchewan, encompassing manufacturing, sales and service, agriculture, arts, entertainment, recreation, and transportation.
Previously, only workers in 34 high-skilled occupations and designated trades qualified for SINP.
This development is especially beneficial for Ukrainian newcomers who recently entered Saskatchewan under the Canada Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel Work Permit.
The implemented changes are anticipated to contribute to Saskatchewan’s goal of attaining a population of 1.4 million and generating 100,000 new jobs by the end of the decade. It’s important to note that applicants for SINP must still meet basic English requirements, and there are available free English classes for newcomers.
