                                                            (April 2010)

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 have 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 SBM team, by email at, to verify that the quota is still open for the nominated
         occupation before lodging the sponsorship application (see sponsorship guidelines for further

        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.
