The Government of Saskatchewan launched a new International Healthcare Worker expression of interest under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), which targets 21 healthcare occupations. This International Healthcare Worker EOI provides the opportunity to link foreign-trained workers with healthcare employers.To qualify for the program, candidates need to meet certain requirements. Even though there are no limits on the number of workers who can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), you can only have one EOI profile. However, keep in mind that not all the candidates who submitted an EOI will be contacted for a job opportunity in the province.
How Does it Work?
So, to work in Saskatchewan under this program, you need to submit an International Healthcare Worker Expression Of Interest (EOI). It is not an application to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Still, it is a pre-application document that allows candidates to fill out an online form to indicate their interest in working in Saskatchewan in a selected Health sector occupation and show their qualifications. Then, all the information you give on this form helps to identify job opportunities in the healthcare system of Saskatchewan that best match your profile. After that, those candidates with the skills needed will be contacted with job posting details, and then you can identify how and where to apply for a job opportunity in Saskatchewan.Finally, if you are selected and receive an employment offer in one of these healthcare sectors in Saskatchewan, you may be eligible for the SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.
