Opportunities in Saskatchewan – International Skilled Worker Nominee Program 2019

Worker PNP Program 2019

Are you a candidate seeking an open work permit from the Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker PNP program? If so, then the most recent changes to the SINP International Skilled Worker Program may benefit you. Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) changes frequently and allows foreign nationals to become permanent residents. The program is designed to allow a set number of candidates into the program each year to immigrate to the various provinces and territories.

The Provincial Nominee Program has played a vital role in Canada’s immigration strategy. The Federal Government’s most recent plant is to further expand the program and it has been predicted that the admission of permanent residents will increase from 61,000 in 2019 to 71,300 in 2021.

The 4 key PNP developments in 2019 are:

  1. A reconsideration of the list of In-Demand occupations under the Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker Program.
  2. An increase in the nomination allocation for Ontario to 6,650 plus 250 nominations for temporary foreign workers in NOC Skill Level C.
  3. A renewal of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program that reorganizes the program in four basic categories.
  4. An increased focus for recruitment of financial auditors and accounts in Nova Scotia.

In Canada there are two main types of provincial nomination streams enhanced nomination, and base nomination. The enhanced nominations are aligned with the Federal Express Entry Streams. These streams manage the candidates in three basic classes: Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Canadian Experience Class. Candidates who qualify for express entry receive an extra 600 points out of a possible 1,200.  Express entry works as a way to fast track permanent residency for foreign nationals with in-demand occupations. The base nominations are for candidates who are not eligible for express entry programs. Candidates must still ensure they meet the requirements for the stream which they intent to apply. The major differences are that no additional points will be provided and the base nomination process is slower than express entry.

In Saskatchewan the In-Demand Occupations List has been enhanced and has grown from 20 occupations to 24. It is important to note that the list is not just a simple enlargement of the program but a revision as 13 new occupations have been added and 9 others have been removed. So we advise that you take a good look at the list prior applying for any SINP program.
