Internationally Educated Applicants

Agrology is a regulated profession in Canada. Each province and territory has its own regulator and registration requirements. In Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists is the regulator.

To work as an agrologist in Saskatchewan, you must be registered with the Institute even if you have a university degree in Agrology or have worked as an Agrologist in another country.

Immigration vs Registration

Immigration to Canada and registration with the Institute are two separate processes. The Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists cannot help you immigrate to Canada and an immigration officer cannot help you become registered with the Institute.

An immigration officer will assess your agrology education and experience as part of the immigration process, and may nominate you to immigrate to Canada if he or she is confident you can find work and contribute to the economy. But an immigration officer cannot guarantee that the Institute will register you to work as an agrologist in Saskatchewan.
