The government of Saskatchewan’s decision to unfasten the most popular Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub categories to applicants with experience in one of the 200 occupations acting as a major twirl the immigration industry giving a ray of hope to immigrants and immigration consultants. This key decision before the elections came as a piece of positive news bringing in a more attractive and happy decision of non mandatory job offer from state or country. The relaxed eligibility requirements of the state of Saskatchewan in order to be considered for Canada PR through SINP under two best categories will somehow help IRCC to achieve or cross the targets set for the Year.
One year of Skilled work experience in one of the 200 categories is a mandatory and major requirement of the state. Last week SINP of jobs reinstated quite some occupations in the in demand occupation list released by the province, this replacement leaped the count of eligible occupations from 19 to 218 opening doors for wide range of EOI candidates. Professions that are now eligible swathe the array of high-skilled occupations covering managerial professionals to technical and skilled trades including IT:
- Information systems analysts
- Database analysts and data administrators
- Computer network technicians
- Information systems testing technicians
- Software engineers and designers
- Computer programmers and interactive media developers
- Web designers and developers
According to the interview with Executive Director of SINP program Ms. Anne Mc Rorie it has been said that the announcement of the change in the in demand occupation list to fulfill the labor market gaps is somehow going to attract skilled workers in need in the province. The one and only way to now look at the list of eligible occupations is to go on the SINP’s website is to fill out an online Expression of Interest, or EOI. Only appropriate candidates whose profession appears on the drop-down list will be able to submit an EOI into the pool of candidates for either the Express Entry or Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
The first come first serve approach has been replaced by the EOI system for the state as earlier the applications accepted were quick but did not favor or benefit the labor market, these innovations in Canada PNP programs are exciting and worthy benefiting both the parties.
