Saskatchewan announces new immigration program

Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot Program created to support Saskatchewan’s labour market demands in key sectors.

Saskatchewan announced a new immigration pilot on November 25.

The Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot will allow Saskatchewan employers to recruit international talent for certain in-demand occupations. The eligible jobs under this pilot will include entry-level positions that may require on-the-job training. The sectors with the highest labour demands in Saskatchewan include health, manufacturing, agriculture, ag-tech, construction, hospitality, and retail.
