Saskatchewan that was once considered an agrarian majority province has slowly but surely transformed into an industrial province that is now offering a host of job opportunities for skilled immigrants.
Why Saskatchewan: The geographic location of Saskatchewan has been a blessing in disguise as Mining has emerged as a major industry in the province. Not only is Saskatchewan the world's largest exporter of potash and uranium, oil and natural gas production has also had a significant role in shaping up Saskatchewan's economy. With a successful economy, not only has Saskatchewan managed to become a hotbed of industrial jobs in the private sector but also even the government of Canada along with the provincial government of Saskatchewan has been supporting employment projects like the Enhanced Employment Assistance Services amid others.
Opportunities In Saskatchewan:
Testimony to the fact that Saskatchewan is one of upcoming provinces in Canada, the province has set employment records for the lowest unemployment rate in the country.
As the world fights slowdowns and recession, the economy of Saskatchewan along with massive job opportunities has had an exponential rise.
The booming industrial sector of Saskatchewan has made it possible that there are more full time jobs available in Saskatchewan today compared to anywhere in Canada. The total full-time employment in Saskatchewan today stands at 435,600 as a result of part-time jobs changing to full-time employment opportunities.
One of the important factors working in favor of Saskatchewan is the government policy of allowing foreign post-secondary students who graduate and work in Saskatchewan to apply to the Saskatchewan Immigration Program immediately without any waiting caps.
There is no denying that fact that with massive opportunities in Oil and Natural gas operations along with Mining and forestry services, Saskatchewan's economy is on the right track and both the federal and provincial governments are working hard in tandem to keep it moving forward.
New Simplified Immigration Rules: The newly introduced immigration law by the government of Canada is likely to act as a catalyst in welcoming skilled immigrants in the country. Under the proposal that has provincially designed programs, provinces like Saskatchewan and Alberta would be able to bring in higher number of highly skilled immigrants to fill job opportunities across various industries for various skilled and semi skilled positions
After decades of serious commercial development, the Saskatchewan’s gross domestic product in 2008 equaled to about 3% of the Canadian economy and has been on the rise ever since. The provincial average per capita income in also almost four times the global average and would earn Saskatchewan a position among the most affluent and upcoming regions in not only Canada but also the entire world.
