SINP updated its Excluded Occupation List

The government of Saskatchewan has recently updated its list of occupations excluded from applying to the Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry program sub-categories, expanding it to 158 occupations. Among these, eight were newly added to the exclusion list. However, effective May 1, 2024, veterinarians and veterinary technicians have been removed from this list, making them eligible for the Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories. Alongside the occupations previously excluded, Sheriffs and bailiffs, correctional services officers, bylaw enforcement officers, estheticians and related professions, transport truck drivers, bus drivers and other transit operators, pest controllers and fumigators, as well as heavy equipment operators, are now ineligible for the Occupations In-Demand or Express Entry PNP sub-categories in Saskatchewan. Additionally, workers in NOC TEER 4 and 5 occupations are not eligible for these programs. It's important to note that these changes do not affect the eligibility for Federal Express Entry or its criteria. Saskatchewan has been increasingly targeting specific occupations and countries in its PNP draws.
