Saskatchewan PNP Introduces 279 Jobs TEER 4 and 5 Occupations
The Saskatchewan government is expanding the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Programme (SINP) to help workers stay in the province’s job market. This includes the Saskatchewan PNP.
Under the SINP Existing Work Permit stream, certain work permit holders engaged in TEER 4 and 5 jobs in the province are now eligible to apply for permanent residency.
This expansion means that foreign-trained workers in intermediate- and lower-skilled positions can now seek permanent residency through the program.
Previously, eligibility for the Existing Work Permit stream was limited to individuals employed in designated trades and high-skilled occupations.
“What Jobs Are Added?
The eligibility criteria for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) now include 279 different jobs like farm laborers, truck drivers, retail salespeople, nurse assistants, and equipment operators.
Moreover, individuals securing these new jobs are eligible to apply for permanent residency if they have prior work experience in the province and meet other program requirements. This includes language proficiency and obtaining a full-time job offer.
In order to apply under the newly expanded stream, candidates must possess one of the following:
an eligible work permit,
a Francophone Mobility Work Permit,
a Labour Market Impact Assessment-Supported Work Permit, or
in the case of recently arrived Ukrainians, a Canadian Ukrainian Authorization for Emergency Travel visa.
