A new pathway in Saskatchewan PNP to open with a new immigration pilot

By  Editor
Updated September 23 2023

With the intention of filling hard-to-fill occupational vacancies, the Government of Saskatchewan has announced a new pilot program under SINP. The pilot is called Hard-to-fill-skills Pilot. It will enable employers in the province to recruit skilled employees through international activities or overseas missions. These candidates will get a pathway through Saskatchewan PNP.

The pilot will be launched in December 2021.

The jobs under consideration in the pilot and the skills required are critical for businesses to function and develop. The candidates who apply under this pilot can apply for low and entry-level positions. When these candidates arrive to work in Canada, they may even need some on-the-job training.

The industry sectors that will benefit from this pilot include healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, hospitality, agri-tech, and retail. The pilot is a step towards the future where the province will enter a period of significant growth coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. The pilot is an extra step in a place where a record level of investment is flowing into training and upskilling of the provincial workforce.

Eligibility for the pilot program

For eligibility, candidates must:

  • Have a certain level of proficiency in the Canadian official language
  • Have an offer to a permanent, full-time job
  • Have a SINP job approval letter for a job deemed eligible from a registered Saskatchewan employer
  • Have a minimum work experience and education level (a minimum of 1-year experience in a certain job or a 6-month experience in that job from Saskatchewan)

Under this pilot program, the employer must show that they have made a good deal of effort to recruit a suitable worker domestically. They must also demonstrate that they need such workers for the benefit of their businesses. Also, they must meet the requirements related to providing support for settlement for the workers.
