Submitting an application to Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee program comes with a long list of requirements as well as employer criteria that you will need to consider. You will need to be certain your occupation is eligible, you have an employment offer that meets the requirements while demonstrating your adaptability in Saskatchewan. Most occupations are acceptable, however not all qualify and must be of a skill rating of A, B or 0 according to the National Occupational Classification.
As the nomination programs are time intensive and have caps and deadlines, having the support of a representative in these matters would not only alleviate a great deal of stress but also greatly increase your chances for success. Many of our clients who face this situation are unsuspecting of the complicated nature of these applications or how to go about demonstrating the necessary requirements they will need to make in order to be successful.
Akrami & Associates will guide you every step of the way with this. Contact us for more details.
If you intend on submitting your application without the support of a representative, there are a couple of factors you should keep in mind.
