THE AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY (ACT) SKILLS IN DEMAND LIST QUOTA LIST OF OCCUPATIONS (November 2009) The ACT ‘Skills in Demand List’ (SDL) identifies occupations that are in demand in Canberra. In order to manage the program successfully and sponsor occupations that will be of benefit to Canberra’s economy, the SDL has been separated into a Baseline and Quota List. SDL ‘Off-List’ Quota. The ACT Government has introduced a ‘Quota’ system, which limits the number of places offered in each occupation according to demand. Applicants seeking sponsorship for a quota occupation must contact the Skilled and Business Migration team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to verify that the quota is still open for the nominated occupation before lodging the sponsorship application (see sponsorship guidelines for further information). The SDL Quota List will be updated on a monthly basis to show the current status of the quota against each occupation, as demonstrated below: Closed Closed: Sponsorship places are not available for this occupation. Limited Limited: Sponsorship places are limited for this occupation. Open Open: Sponsorship places are available for this occupation. The occupations listed do not relate to a specific job vacancy, nor represent a guarantee of a job in a specific occupation. The applicant should understand that the ACT Government is NOT responsible for finding them employment or for providing any form of financial assistance. Applicants must compete for positions with all people in the labour market as part of the normal selection process. Success will depend on employer requirements, relevant skills and experience and level of English ability.
