Saskatchewan's Minister for Immigration and Career Training Jeremy Harrison said in a media release that the demand for labour in the province is about to increase further with new economic projects coming up. In this context, the new Stream is expected to provide Saskatchewan employers with greater access to international options for recruiting workers. Besides, the province has also announced making record investments into training and up-skilling provincial workforce to meet the increased demand for labour as the economy is recovering from the impact of the pandemic.
The workers to be nominated under the Stream will be supported by their employers and community. The eligibility criteria for applicants under this stream include:
However, the province is yet to reveal the occupations that are eligible, minimum education requirement and language proficiency level required.
As far as the employers are concerned, they need to prove that they had made extensive efforts to fill the position domestically before opting the Pilot for recruitment. They must also demonstrate that recruiting a foreign worker would benefit their business and that they would fulfill all the requirements related to providing settlement support for workers.
The employers in the province welcomed the announcement of the launch of the new Stream. In a media release, Hospitality Saskatchewan President and CEO Jim Bence said it was very positive news for businesses in the hospitality industry in Saskatchewan. "This pilot project is designed to attract talent and a great program for all sectors currently experiencing labour recruitment challenges in the province. While we always work hard to exhaust every opportunity to hire locally, we have to be creative to ensure we have the right labour supply to help our business and communities grow and thrive in Saskatchewan, something this very unique program will be especially helpful with post-COVID,” the release said.
