Novel EOI Pool launched by Saskatchewan for International Healthcare Workers

A new International Healthcare Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) Pool has been established in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program will manage the pool (SINP).

The new International Healthcare Worker EOI submission method is a pre-application form that lets candidates submit an online form stating their interest in working in a certain health care occupation in Saskatchewan, rather than an application to the SINP.

Saskatchewan will check your qualifications and, if you possess the abilities that an employer seeks, you will be contacted with information on how to apply for a job opening.

You may be eligible for the SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot if you receive a job offer.

A tutorial on how to build an EOI profile may be found on the SINP website. You must have a professional background that fits under one of the following National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes in order to submit an EOI.
