This program has been reopened with an expanded list of 43 occupations which are currently in demand. It is in association with Canada‚Äôs Express Entry immigration selection system.

The candidates who are eligible for the Canadian Express Entry program and possess a work experience in one of these professions would be able to submit to apply for the provincial nomination under SINP. Consequently, additional 600 points would be awarded and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence will also be issued in the consecutive draw from the pool.

‚ÄúInternational Skilled¬†Worker ‚Äď Express Entry, the sub-category of SINP, was opened for a short span which catered the candidates on first-come, first-serve basis. The overall quota for this category is 1,700 applications worldwide. A job offer is not required in order to apply for this program. During this intake period, there were chances of 600 applications to be accepted and remaining 1100 yet to be catered in upcoming months.‚ÄĚ20 of the 43 in-demand occupations on the updated list don‚Äôt require the candidate to possess a professional license. However, the other 23 occupations do require a professional license.

The initial occupations list included 17 occupations only. Therefore, the candidates who were a part of the Express Entry pool but were not eligible for SINP are now eligible to apply for the program.
