Saskatchewan Experience Long haul truck drivers Anyone know Anything About this program ?
from what I can Gather you would need to be in Saskatchewan and working for an Employer
on a valid temporary foreign worker permit for 6 months before you
Could Apply for this program, no Education Requirements just CLB mark 4

Your issue might be getting a LMIA granted - see the below info for that NOC code, as you can see it states secondary education is 'usually required'.

Any reason you're not pursuing the FST program option?

Yes, but to be working for 6 months you’ll need a LMIA/TWP - and as above, the NOC requirement state secondary education is required, so you might struggle to be granted a LMIA.

Plus you’ve got to find a sponsoring employer and then be on a temporary visa for at least 12-18 months, quite a risk.

Whereas the FST program would get you PR, plus no education requirement. So I wondered why you had discounted that, are you not eligible?

My point Was the programs you pointed out in the Links for programs in Saskatchewan and Manitoba initially require a high school diploma or certificate to Apply , but then if you are working for 6 months In Either of these Provence’s there is Another program you can Enter but required no Education Certificate for NOC
code C 7511 .

I think we're talking at cross purposes. I'm not saying you need education if you've been working there for 6 months to apply for PR, I'm talking about you getting a work permit to go to work there for those initial 6 months. For that you'd need a LMIA, and to get a LMIA you must prove that you meet the criteria under the NOC code, which is what I've linked to above, and which says secondary education is usually required. If you can't get the LMIA then you have no way of doing the required 6 months anyway.

It's a Federal program, Siouxie gave you the link to it above (post no. 37). So you'd get the security of PR without needing to work there first, and you could live anywhere. That would be far preferable, so I'd be checking that very carefully first and seeing if you're eligible.

No probs. If you're eligible, that's your best option by a mile.

If you are offered an LMIA in some provinces, be aware that you will have to take your Canadian Class 1, which now includes the MELT program and is 121 hrs at a cost of about CAD 10,000
