The Express Entry has good news for Saskatchewan and for other Canadian provinces–it will be increasing the allocation for the Nominee Program of various provinces in 2015. Saskatchewan’s existing 5000 slots will get a 16% increase, or a total increase of 775 slots, from its previous slots in 2014.
Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada. It has been experiencing a shortage in its labour market needs, and it has been looking for an increase in its allocation for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program. With the additional 775 slots that will be given to the province, the problem will be alleviated.
Aside from this, the faster six-month processing time means that needs will be met immediately and vacant labor spots will be filled right away.
