Saskatchewan Opens New International Healthcare Worker EOI Pool to Apply for Canada Immigration

Saskatchewan International Healthcare Worker EOI Pool

In a bid to boost provincial immigration, Provincial Nominee Program run by Saskatchewan has launched a new International Healthcare Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) Pool.

The purpose of the new EOI pool is to connect healthcare workers with job opportunities in the province, making it easier to apply for Canada immigration.

Saskatchewan considers this new International Healthcare Worker EOI submission process as a pre-application form. Eligible candidates may submit an online form indicating they want to work in a selected health care occupation in Saskatchewan.

This will prioritize and quicken the process of receiving nominations from the Provincial Nominee Program.

The new EOI pool will now be operational under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
