Saskatchewan has Updated the Excluded Occupation List for SINP Applicants

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a provincial immigration program in Canada that allows the province of Saskatchewan to nominate individuals for permanent residency who have the skills and experience needed in the local labor market. The program is designed to attract skilled workers, entrepreneurs, and investors to contribute to the economic growth and development of Saskatchewan.

SINP offers several streams through which individuals can apply for nomination, including the International Skilled Worker Category, Saskatchewan Experience Category, Entrepreneur Category, and Farm Owner and Operator Category. Each stream has its own eligibility requirements and criteria.

On May 1, 2024, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) made a significant update to its Excluded Occupation List. This revision holds significant implications for individuals applying for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) visas through the Occupations In-Demand (OID) or Express Entry subcategories under the International Skilled Worker category of SINP.

By excluding these occupations, SINP aims to ensure that nominated applicants have skills and experience that align with the needs of Saskatchewan’s economy.

As of now, TEER 0 to TEER 3 occupations in NOC 2021 are eligible for OID and Express Entry subcategories, except those listed in the Excluded Occupation List.

Hence, as of now, applicants should be noted:

  • Eligibility requires occupation listing under NOC 2021 TEER 0, 1, 2, or 3 categories.
  • Occupations listed in the Saskatchewan Excluded Occupation List are not eligible.
  • Check the latest status of your occupation before applying for Canadian PR.

The following occupations are not eligible for the SINP sub-categories requiring a job offer and JAL from a Saskatchewan employer unless certain requirements, listed below, are met.
