Saskatchewan has released the list of 129 ineligible occupations, which leaves around 200 NOC 0, A & B occupations under which the interested applicants can apply for in the PNP program.

Henceforth more Express Entry (EE) candidates will be eligible to apply to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program(SINP) and obtain a Provincial Nomination that would increase their Express Entry scores by 600 points. These points would ensure the candidate gets selected and receives the Invitation to apply for permanent residence in the subsequent draws.

Saskatchewan PNP requires its immigration consultants to be specially licensed by the province apart from being licensed by ICCRC. Alexander Immigration Services has a specific license from Saskatchewan to provide all kinds of immigration service to applicants worldwide who apply for studies and permanent residency to Saskatchewan.

Alexander Immigration services is also a Canadian Government regulatory body ICCRC licensed organization and can be found on the official website by typing either the company name “Alexander Immigration Services” or the licensed consultant’s name “Hemalatha Alexander” in the relevant columns.

The Canadian government has announced a new three-year immigration pilot program to bring full-time non-seasonal agricultural workers into Canada, including a pathway to permanent residency.

The pilot is a collaboration between Agriculture and Agri-food Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
