The Saskatchewan government launched a new pilot program under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to target hard-to-fill occupations in the province.

Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot Program to Ease Labour Demand in Key Sectors

What Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot Program Does

The Hard-To Fill Skills Pilot is a program that will allow employers in Saskatchewan to recruit workers through overseas missions or other international recruitment activities into jobs that have significant challenges with hiring.

This pilot will allow companies to apply for jobs critical in maintaining business operations but may require on-the-job training.

Health, manufacturing, agriculture, ag-tech, construction, hospitality, and retail industries with the highest worker demand.

“The demand for labor in our province is strong, and it’s only going to increase with the significant economic projects recently announced in Saskatchewan,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “This new Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot – developed in Saskatchewan for Saskatchewan – is progress on our autonomy discussions with the federal government and is going to help provide employers with greater access to international options to recruit workers. This is in addition to record investments into training and upskilling our provincial workforce, as we enter a period of strong growth coming out of the global pandemic.”

Workers chosen through this stream would support their employers and the community, which would help them succeed. The pilot is set to begin in December 2021.

“This is very positive news for businesses in the hospitality industry in Saskatchewan,” said Hospitality Saskatchewan President and CEO Jim Bence. “This pilot project is designed to attract talent and a great program for all sectors currently experiencing labor recruitment challenges in the province. While we always work hard to exhaust every opportunity to hire locally, we have to be creative to ensure we have the right labor supply to help our business and communities grow and thrive in Saskatchewan, something this very unique program will be beneficial with post-COVID.”

What do you need to apply for this Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot Program?

Applicants to the Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot must: 

  • Have a full-time, permanent work offer and SINP job approval letter from a registered Saskatchewan employer for an approved occupation;
  • Meet a minimal level of competence in a Canadian Official Language; and
  • Meet the minimal educational and work experience criteria, including at least one year of work experience in the same occupation as the job offer or six months in that position in Saskatchewan.
