Saskatchewan starts new International Healthcare Worker EOI Pool


The objective of the pool is to help connect healthcare workers with job opportunities in Saskatchewan.


Saskatchewan has started a new International Healthcare Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) Pool.

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

The new International Healthcare Worker EOI submission process is not an application to the SINP, but instead of a pre-application form that permits candidates to submit an online form indicating they are interested in working in a selected health care occupation in Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan will review your qualifications and should you have the skills that an employer is looking for, the province will contact you with information on how to apply for a job opportunity.

If you then receive a job offer, you might be eligible for the SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.

The SINP website offers a guide on how to create an EOI profile. To submit an EOI you need to have a professional background that falls under one of the following National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes.
