Internationally-trained workers can now access online licensing information for more than 20 non-health regulated occupations in Saskatchewan. This will help immigrants get settled and into jobs more quickly.
"Fact sheets will enable internationally-trained professionals to quickly find accurate information to navigate the licensing process," Minister responsible for Immigration Rob Norris said. "Up-to-date, accurate information on licensing processes will assist newcomers in making informed choices about immigration and employment, and help them settle in our province."
The fact sheets were created in consultation with regulators to ensure accuracy of information prior to online posting. The Government of Saskatchewan, in collaboration with provincial regulators, has posted "Licensing Process Fact Sheets" on its Going to Saskatchewan web portal (http://www.saskimmigrationcanada.ca/is-my-occupation-regulated/#regulated - "Working" section).
These fact sheets represent a positive step in facilitating early communication between provincial regulators and immigrants seeking work in Saskatchewan.
"The Going to Saskatchewan web portal connects immigrants as early as possible to the people, resources and services they need to stay here and to succeed in our province," Norris said.
