Are you a healthcare worker looking to move to Saskatchewan, Canada? Good news! The government of Saskatchewan has just announced a new scheme that will enable skilled health workers move to Canada.
This scheme helps health workers to be notified about recent job opportunities in the Saskatchewan Health Sector. The International Healthcare Worker EOI provides the opportunity to link foreign trained workers with Saskatchewan healthcare employers.
According to the Saskatchewan official website, this scheme is a pre-application form which allows you to fill out an online form to indicate your interest in working in Saskatchewan in a selected Health sector occupation and show your qualifications.
The information asked for is used to identify you for job opportunities being offered by Saskatchewan healthcare sector employers.
Those who have skills needed will be contacted with job posting information, identifying where and how to apply for a job opportunity. If you are selected and receive an employment offer, you may be eligible for the SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer or the Hard-to-Fill Skills Pilot.
