Saskatchewan invites 308 candidates

The Candidates who had submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) to Saskatchewan were invited to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence

Saskatchewan invited 308 candidates in the latest Express Entry, Occupations In-Demand Draw. The Immigration candidates need to apply for a provincial nomination for its latest draw which held on January 9. This is the first draw of the year for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) and invitations went to candidates in both the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams.

The Candidates did not need a job offer to be invited for a provincial nomination in this draw. However, they did need to complete an Expression of Interest with the Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP). They also needed one year of work experience in an eligible skilled occupation related to their field of study.

Once Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles are submitted, the SINP assesses them on factors with the following age, skilled work experience, education, language ability, and connections to Saskatchewan. Then they receive a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The score determines the immigration candidate’s ranking in the Expression of Interest (EOI) pool and the highest-scoring candidates are issued invitations to apply through regular draws. In both categories, candidates needed a minimum score of 69 in order to be invited in the latest Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) selection round.

Saskatchewan express entry sub category

The Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program issued 142 invitations to candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool. Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category is linked to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs i.e.

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Class,
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Class,
  3. Canadian Experience Class.

If candidates in the federal Express Entry pool also filled out an Expression of Interest for Saskatchewan and they scored 69 on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they may have been selected in the latest invitation round. The Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their CRS score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Saskatchewan express entry and occupations in demand category

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is open to immigration candidates who do not have a federal Express Entry profile. There were 166 Occupations In-Demand candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination program and the Express Entry sub-category candidates needed a provincial score of 69 in order to be chosen.

The SINP uses an Excluded Occupations List rather than a list of in-demand occupations. This is to allow for more flexibility in responding to the changing demands of the province’s labor market. The 9th Jan 2020 draw issued invitations to candidates in 82 occupations and some of these in-demand occupations include managers in agriculture, administrative officers, and electronic service technicians for household and business equipment.
