Updated In Demand Occupation List Saskatchewan

Updated In-Demand Occupations

SINP announced that it had revised the In-Demand Occupations List in order to ensure that “nominees with positive employment prospects in Saskatchewan are selected and nominations do no exceed employment demand.”

The In-Demand Occupations List applies to both the SINP’s Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories.

Of the 22 in-demand occupations on Saskatchewan’s updated In-Demand Occupations List, three do not require candidates to obtain specific professional licensure. The Government of Saskatchewan requires professional licensure from the relevant organizations for the remaining 19 occupations.
