Great news for all applicants who are participating in the International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee program (SINP). It is reopened for 500 new applicants on January the 4th, 2017!
For all of you, who don’t know, this SINP sub-category program, allows all skilled workers with all the necessary experience in one of the in-demand occupations to make an application for a provincial certificate. After that, the applicant is allowed to make another application for a Canadian permanent residence. Applicants don’t have to require a job offer in order to be able to make an application in this SINP program.
Why is this some great news?
This sub-category is not aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system. That means, all individuals who might not be eligible for an Express Entry because of different reasons or, people who are eligible but have still not received any answer, are eligible and can apply for this Occupations In-demand program if they are highly skilled in an in-demand occupation.
Here are the minimum eligibility requirements every applicant must fulfill in order to apply for this SINP program:
- Proof of legal status if the applicant is currently residing in Canada
- Have completed a least one year of post-secondary education comparable to the Canadian education system.
- Own a minimum language score of Canadian Language Benchmark; 4.
- Have at least one year of paid work experience related to their education field. This, only during the last 10 years.
- The program of the applicant’s studies must have resulted in a degree, diploma, certificate etc.
- The applicant must obtain proof of eligibility for Saskatchewan licensure. This, only if their profession is regulated in this province and requires a certificate or licensing.
- The applicant must score at least 60 points out of 100 on the point assessment grid.
- Must deliver some proofs of settlement funds.
