The Government of Saskatchewan announced a new pilot under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to address hard-to-fill positions in the province.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) ordinarily allows the province to nominate candidates to the federal government for permanent residence under three main categories.
Now, the eligible jobs under this pilot will allow for application of low and entry level positions, and may require on-the-job training. The sectors with the highest labour demands include health, manufacturing, agriculture, ag-tech, construction, hospitality and retail.
The pilot is scheduled to launch in December 2021. To be eligible, applicants to the Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot must:
- Have a full-time, permanent offer of employment and SINP job approval letter for an eligible occupation from a registered Saskatchewan employer.
- Meet a minimum Canadian Official Language proficiency level
- Meet the minimum educational and work experience requirements, which includes having at least one year of work experience in the same occupation as the job offer or six-months work experience in that job in Saskatchewan.
