Immigrants can now apply online to the new “Saskatchewan express” entry category.

The province says it will make the application process easier for applicants who have skills that are in demand.

The new category, announced in January, will add 775 immigrant positions to the Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program.

Now instead of relying on a first-come-first-serve basis, criteria will focus on the most qualified workers.

“Where we have a real labour market need here in this province is primarily for skilled trades,” said Jeremy Harrison, the minister of immigration, jobs, skills and training.

“It’s something we have heard repeatedly from employers — the challenge of attracting skilled labour.”

One construction company was able to get 15 experienced tradespeople through the immigrant program, Harrison said.
Applications in the new category will be processed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in six months or less.
