9 Jobs are in high demand in Saskatchewan due to Covid19

It is true that many industries were negatively affected by pandemic-related shutdowns, such as the tourism and hospitality sectors. Many individuals lost their jobs or saw their hours reduced. However, other sectors saw a rise in job vacancies. The pandemic has increased demand in many occupations in Saskatchewan.

Here are nine of the jobs that increased in demand. The jobs are listed alongside their National Occupational Classification (NOC) code. 

1. Real estate agents and salespersons (NOC 6232)

2. Transport truck drivers (NOC 7511)

3. Cleaning supervisors (NOC 6315)

4. Heavy equipment operators (NOC 7521)

5. Power engineers and power systems operators (NOC 9241)

6. Store shelf stockers, clerks and order fillers (NOC 6622)

7. Information systems analysts and consultants (NOC 2171)

8. Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses (NOC 3012)

9. User support technicians (NOC 2282)

How you can immigrate to Saskatchewan if you work in one of these occupations?

There are pathways to permanent residence for those with work experience in an in-demand occupation in a particular province.  

The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal Express Entry system.

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs:

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score .

In addition, Saskatchewan has its own Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It is formally called the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). 

The province has a sub-category specific to in-demand occupations under the International Skilled Worker category. Each time the SINP holds a draw, it also releases the list of eligible occupations for that particular draw.

If you also have an Express Entry profile, this may open doors to the province’s immigration programs that are aligned with Express Entry. This includes the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category, also under the International Skilled Worker category.

So far in 2021, of the list above, only those with work experience as user support technicians, power engineers and power system operators were invited through Saskatchewan Express Entry.
