On April 17, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program came up with the list related to the first Expression of Interest draw for immigration candidates. It specified the work experience about some of the in-demand occupations.
There were some of the new additions in the Saskatchewan’s In-demand Occupations List, and the change was a part of SINP or Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
Work Experience: A Pre-Requisite for Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program
If the occupation is on the list, then there is a requirement of work experience for Occupation In-Demand and SINP’s Express Entry sub-categories. But it is to be noted that a job offer is not required for any of the sub-categories.
What is SINP? (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program)
It is an integral part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program. It permits participating territories and provinces to nominate financially viable immigration candidates for permanent residence in Canada every year.
