Saskatchewan considerably increases its demand occupations list for Express Entry & In-Demand Occupation categories

The province of Saskatchewan has increased the list of in-demand occupations in Express Entry as well as In-Demand Occupation categories. More than 200 occupations have been added now to this List!

Saskatchewan Express Entry

This sub-category is for skilled workers who want to live and work in Saskatchewan and are in the federal Express Entry Pool.

Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand

This sub-category is for skilled workers who do not have a job offer but are highly skilled in a Saskatchewan in-demand occupation.

Note: Eligible occupations for the Occupations In-Demand (OID) and Express Entry (EE) program sub-categories are high-skilled occupations in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Matrix levels, with the exception of the ineligible occupations listed in the SINP Excluded Occupation List below. High skilled occupations include:

  • NOC “A” (occupations that usually require university education);
  • NOC “B” (occupations that usually require college education or apprenticeship training); or
  • NOC “0” (management).

Note that NOC “C” (occupations that usually require high-school or job-specific training) and NOC “D” (occupations that usually require on-the-job training) skill levels are not eligible for the Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry subcategories.

As of September 18, 2019, the SINP has switched to publishing a list of 129 excluded occupations. People with the following occupations are excluded from applying to the Occupations In-Demand (OID) and Express Entry (EE) program sub-categories.
