This sub-category is for skilled workers who:
- Have a job offer for a skilled occupation in Saskatchewan; and
- Meet the criteria of the sub-category. Criteria can change at any time, but we’ll use what was on this website when we received your complete application.
You may qualify for this sub-category if you live outside Canada or have proof of legal status in Canada, are not a refugee claimant and:
- Score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) point assessment grid;
- Have at least one-year work experience in the past 10 years in your intended occupation;
- Have a language score of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4.
- Employers and regulatory bodies may ask for language scores that are higher than CLB 4;
- Show proof of eligibility for Saskatchewan licensure, if your intended occupation is in a regulated profession or compulsory apprenticeship trade;
- You’ll need this as part of your SINP application. To see if your intended occupation is regulated in Saskatchewan, go to Regulated Occupations and Licensing Requirements.
- Have an offer of permanent, full-time employment in Saskatchewan. You’ll need a valid SINP Job Approval Letter to show proof of this. There is no specific list of jobs, but your offer is required to be in an occupation in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Matrix level “A”, “B” or “0”, or in a designated trade in Saskatchewan.
The program criteria can change at any time, but we’ll use what was on this website when we received your complete application.
The federal government sets the amount of nominations the SINP can make every year. No application is guaranteed to be accepted and/or nominated.
Who Can’t Apply through the International Skilled Worker – Employment Offer Sub-Category
The following can’t apply through this sub-category:
- Refugee claimants in Canada who are claiming refugee status from the Government of Canada
- Health professionals (you must apply to the SINP Health Professional sub-category)
- Food and Beverage Servers/Persons (you must apply under the Hospitality Sector Project sub-category)
Also, if any of these are true, you may not be eligible for nomination by the SINP:
- You didn’t submit documentation that the SINP asked for;
- You were unable to prove that you intend to live and work in Saskatchewan; and
- You and or your representative have intentionally misrepresented yourselves in the application.
You’ll need to score at least 60 out of 100 points on the point assessment grid to be considered for nomination by the SINP.
Points are awarded based on the following five factors:
- Education and training;
- Skilled work experience;
- Language ability;
- Age; and
- Connection(s) and adaptability to the Saskatchewan labor market.
Be sure to provide documents to prove that you’re eligible and meet the five factors above. For example, if you claim 20 points for having a university degree, you must attach a copy of your university degree and complete transcripts. If your degree is printed in a language other than English or French, you must also attach a translated version.
Applications that are submitted where documents are missing or not translated will be considered incomplete and the application will be closed. If your application is closed, you will be sent a letter and advised to reapply at a later date with a complete application.
