In a fairly important development, a widely accepted Canadian immigration option in the province of Saskatchewan--International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand sub-category--has reportedly become available once again, this time for a restricted figure of petitions.
On October 24, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Programme (SINP) reportedly made public that the scheme in question would admit a maximum of 700 petitions. It allegedly signals the fifth time this specific SINP sub-class has had an application intake hitherto in 2016. And in case the preceding intake periods are any indication, it can be anticipated that the most recent intake limit could be hit inside just a few days, or maybe even a couple of hours.
As per the latest information, the intake limit of 700 petitions for the SINP International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand sub-category was hit on the afternoon of October 24, just a few hours post the edit was initially brought out.
Under this particular SINP sub-class, it is possible for the people with employment experience, in any of the Saskatchewan’s in-demand vocations, to present a petition for a provincial nomination certificate. With the certificate in question, the aspirants can put forward an application for the prized Permanent Residence (PR) to the federal administration. There is not any requirement whatsoever for any job offer with a view to be qualified under this sub-class. This sub-class is not duly aligned with the Canadian federal Express Entry immigration selection arrangement.
Courtesy its exclusive eligibility requirements, it is achievable that those--who are not entitled for Express Entry (for instance, because of language skills), as well as those who are qualified for Express Entry, but who have hitherto not obtained an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for PR--can be entitled for this specific SINP sub-class.
The present occupation list reportedly has 21 professions across a chain of businesses, particularly in healthcare, IT, engineering, and trades.
