The Government of Saskatchewan has launched a new immigration program to attract technology professionals to the province.
The new Tech Talent Pathway under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is intended to ease critical labour shortages in Saskatchewan’s tech sector.
With this new pathway to permanent residence for tech workers, employers in Saskatchewan’s technology and innovation sectors will be able to attract more talent to support growth and increase Saskatchewan’s global competitiveness.
“As Saskatchewan emerges from the impacts of the global pandemic, our technology sector will be an important driver of economic growth,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said in a media release. “The new Tech Talent Pathway provides our Saskatchewan employers with a dedicated stream for the attraction of highly skilled talent into our thriving technology sector.”
In January the Province of Alberta announced a new immigration pathway for tech-savvy newcomers as well. The Accelerated Tech Pathway supports Alberta’s Recovery Plan and strengthen Alberta’s workforce by providing a fast track to permanent residence for highly skilled tech professionals who want to live and work in Alberta.
