However, there are some occupations which are not licensed but have associations where the candidate can join and be an active member of the community. As a part of these associations, the applicant can benefit from building more contacts.

Licensed occupations, on the other hand, are under the regulatory bodies and there are a set of requirements which needs to be met if the candidate wishes to be employed in a particular occupation that are in-demand in Saskatchewan.

  • Examinations as per the Job profile
