Canada’s SINP Category for Immigration Filled within hours of Reopening - January 06, 2017

Canada SINP Category for Immigration Filled within hours of Reopening

The SINP (or the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) offices of Canada, saw a busy morning, wherein around five hundred new applications were received for its International Skilled Worker / Occupations In-Demand sub-category within only a few hours of reopening on 4th January 2017. The rapidity at which this ‘trending’ sub-category of Canadian immigration opened & closed… emphasized once more, the need for potential applicants to always be completely prepared to submit an application at any given moment.

The ‘International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand’ sub-category permits skilled individuals with work experience under an ‘in-demand’ occupation, to submit an application under the SINP provincial nomination certificate. Bearing this certificate, an applicant can further apply for a PR. Under this sub-category, a job offer is not necessary, unlike the Express Entry programme, which is a federal system.

This popular sub-category was opened on many instances all through 2016. Usually, the intake cap is maxed out quickly, generally within few days or just hours. The fact of this sub-category reopening once more, that too this early in 2017, indicates how Saskatchewan is looking to welcome new and numerous applications in 2017 as well.

With a high standard of living and abundant career opportunities, Saskatchewan has grown into a popular destination for immigration throughout recent years.

Amid other requirements for eligibility, applicants have to be skilled under an occupation which is in-demand. The present list comprises of 21 occupations covering an assortment of industries, particularly in trades, engineering, health care, IT and agriculture. A complete list of occupations ‘in-demand’ is mentioned towards the end.
