The province of Saskatchewan has established a new International Healthcare Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) Pool. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program will host the pool (SINP). The pool's goal is to match healthcare personnel with career opportunities in Saskatchewan. It will further help the policymakers to boost Canada immigration.
The new International Healthcare Worker EOI submission method is not an application to the SINP but rather a pre-application form that allows applicants to indicate their interest in working in a certain health care vocation in Saskatchewan by submitting an online form.
Saskatchewan will assess your credentials, and if you have the talents that a potential employer is seeking for, the province will contact you with information on how to apply for a position. If you are then offered a position, you might be eligible for the SINP's International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.
The SINP website has instructions for creating an EOI profile for Canada PR. To file an EOI, you must have a professional background that fits under one of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes listed below:
