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.

The SINP has expanded, and contracted, its eligible occupation list at different times based on the applications it received and labour market demand.
SINP profiles are valid for one year. The SINP said the profiles of candidates whose occupations have been removed from the list will remain valid for that period and “could be pulled in another EOI draw if the occupation becomes in-demand once again.”
