Canada immigration news: A new Saskatchewan expression of interest pool will see the province target 21 healthcare occupations for Canada immigration.

Through the International Healthcare Worker EOI, the province plans to link qualified candidates with healthcare job vacancies through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

Candidates submit a profile to show their interest in working in Saskatchewan in one of the occupations, plus their qualifications.

Those with the required skills are then contacted by SINP officials with job vacancies, plus help on where and how to apply.

Candidates with a job offer can then apply for immigration from the SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer sub-category or the new Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.
