Saskatchewan PNP launches new tech immigration program

To compensate for major labour shortages in Saskatchewan’s tech sector, the province has launched a new Tech Talent Pathway with effect from March 7, 2022.

The new immigration program under SINP will open immigration route for foreign workers in 11 tech occupations who desire to move to Saskatchewan permanently. With this new stream, employers in Saskatchewan can offer an expedited immigration process to those tech workers who are already working in Saskatchewan, as well as those who are recruited outside Canada.

In a media release, Immigration and Career Training Minister, Jeremy Harrison said, “The new Tech Talent Pathway provides the employers in Saskatchewan with a dedicated stream for the attraction of highly skilled talent into our thriving technology sector.”

To qualify for SINP’s New Tech Talent Stream, candidates must:

·         Have an employer-specific Job Approval Letter in a technology sector occupation

·         Score at least CLB level 5 if not working in Saskatchewan or CLB level 7 if applying for Express Entry

·         Have a minimum of one year of work experience in a tech occupation obtained in the past five years; or six months of work experience gained in Saskatchewan

·         Have completed post-secondary education

·         Qualify for Saskatchewan professional licensing (for computer, electrical, electronics engineers, and software).


Please note, the program criteria is subject to change at the discretion of Saskatchewan PNP.
