An Occupation is considered high if it is rated as a Skill Level A or B or Skill Type 0 under Canada’s National Occupational Classification, or NOC. The SINP has listed 129 occupations that are excluded from the list making it over 200 occupations that are eligible to apply. Candidates wishing to apply in any of these sub-categories must submit a separate Expression of Interest with the SINP.
