High-skilled health occupations included in the SINP International Health Worker EOI Pool are now eligible for the International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer category.
This sub-category is for skilled workers who:
- Have an offer for a skilled job in Saskatchewan.
- Meet the criteria of the sub-category.
- Intend to reside in Saskatchewan as a permanent resident. Note: all nominees with temporary work permits must reside in Saskatchewan.
This video explains how to apply for this category
You may qualify for this sub-category if you live outside Canada or have proof of legal status in Canada, are not a refugee claimant, and:
- Score at least 60 points on the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) point assessment grid.
- Have at least one-year work experience in the past 10 years (in your intended occupation).
- Have a language score of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4.
- Some employers or regulators may ask for scores that are higher than CLB 4.
- Be eligible for Saskatchewan licensing (if your intended occupation is in a regulated profession or compulsory apprenticeship trade).
- To see if your intended occupation is regulated in Saskatchewan, see Regulated Occupations and Licensing Requirements.
- Have an offer for a permanent, full-time job in Saskatchewan. You will need a valid SINP Job Approval Letter to show proof. Employers must register with the SINP and obtain the Job Approval Letter. They will then provide the Job Approval Letter to you if you meet their hiring qualifications.
- There is no specific list of jobs, but your offer must be in an occupation in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) TEER level "0", "1", "2" or "3", or in a designated trade in Saskatchewan. Please note the following exclusions:
- Food and Beverage Servers/Persons (NOC 65200) must apply under the Hospitality Sector Project sub-category or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.
- Only those with high skilled health occupations eligible for the International Healthcare Worker EOI Pool can apply to this sub-category. Other health professionals will need to apply to the Saskatchewan Experience Health Professionals sub-category. If you are applying under NOC 33102, then you may be eligible for the Hard-to-Fill Skills (HFS) Pilot. More information on the HFS Pilot can be found at HFS Pilot.
Please note that there may be a higher English language requirement if your job offer is in a regulated occupation. Please check the requirements with the applicable regulatory body.
The program criteria can change at any time, but we will use what was on this website when we received your application.
The federal government sets the amount of nominations the SINP can make every year. No application is guaranteed to be accepted.
The following cannot apply:
- Refugee claimants in Canada who are claiming refugee status from the Government of Canada.
- Health professionals not currently eligible for the International Healthcare Worker EOI Pool must apply to the SINP Health Professional sub-category.
- Food and Beverage Servers/Persons (you must apply under the Hospitality Sector Project sub-category).
You may not be eligible if:
- You did not provide the required documents at the time of submitting your application.
- You were not able to prove that you plan to live and work in Saskatchewan.

You will need to score at least 60 points on the point assessment grid.

If you want one, you must make sure they are a lawyer in Canada in good standing with a provincial law society or licensed by the Government of Saskatchewan. Visit Using an Immigration Representative for more information or see a list of approved immigration consultants.
