International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer

Overview

If you are outside of Canada and have submitted a paper work permit application to the Government of Canada (GoC) that has not yet been processed, then you will need to resubmit it as an electronic application. Fees paid for the electronic application will be refunded at a later date when the paper application is received by the GoC and reviewed or you can request a refund using this process.

For temporary SINP measures and frequently asked questions related to the COVID-19 outbreak and how it may impact temporary residents, nominees and permanent residency applicants, please see the Immigration FAQs.

This sub-category is for skilled workers who:

  • Have an offer for a skilled job in Saskatchewan.
  • Meet the criteria of the sub-category.

Eligibility

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).
  • Have an offer for a permanent, full-time job in Saskatchewan. You will need a valid SINP Job Approval Letter to show proof. There is no specific list of jobs, but your offer must be in an occupation in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Matrix level "A", "B" or "O", or in a designated trade in Saskatchewan.

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.

Who Cannot Apply Through the International Skilled Worker - Employment Offer Sub-Category?

The following cannot apply:

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 and or your representative have intentionally misrepresented yourselves in the application.

Assessment Rating

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

Points are awarded based on the following five factors:

  1. Education and training.
  2. Skilled work experience.
  3. Language ability.
  4. Age.
  5. Connection(s) and adaptability to the Saskatchewan labour market.

You must give documents to prove that you are eligible and meet the five factors above. For example, if you claim 20 points for having a university degree, you must attach a copy of your university degree and transcripts. If your degree is printed in a language other than English or French, you must also attach a translated version.

How to Apply

Applications that are sent with missing documents or not translated will be closed. If your application is closed, you will be sent a letter and asked to reapply.

What You Need to Know About Using Immigration Representatives

You do not need to use an immigration representative or consultant to apply to the SINP. 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. You can learn more about Saskatchewan's laws that protect foreign workers by visiting Protection for Immigrants and Foreign Workers.
