A few examples of qualified occupations consist of corporate sales supervisors, data scientists, electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians, advertising and marketing and advertising managers, amongst others.
About the Occupations In-Demand sub-category
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which means it is open to immigration candidates who do not have a national Express Entry profile. Saskatchewan latest PNP Draw 2021 invites immigrants for provincial nomination.

Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the state demonstrate their capacity to settle into life in Saskatchewan.
