The latest round of invitations held by Saskatchewan on September 24 invited 535 immigrant applicants to apply for permanent residence. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) sent out invitations to applicants in the Express Entry and In-Demand Professions categories.
SINP has invited 2,740 applicants for occupations in demand so far this year. The total number of invitations issued by SINP is now just under 5,000 in 2020 through the Saskatchewan Express Entry subcategory.
To be selected, applicants had to have submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile to the SINP.
The SINP uses an EOI system to invite immigrant applicants who have the potential to thrive in the Prairie Province to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
Interested applicants who want to apply for SINP nomination, should create an EOI profile and demonstrate their ability to relocate to Saskatchewan by listing their work experience, education, language skills, age, and ties to the province.
SINP uses these five factors to assess applicants and assign them a score out of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-rated applicants then receive an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
The minimum score required for the September 24 draws was 82 for both subcategories.
No job offer is required to receive an invitation from Saskatchewan. However, applicants were required to have at least one year of work experience in a qualifying qualified occupation related to their field of study.
Invited applicants in both categories also took academic credential assessments, which show how foreign degrees, diplomas, and certificates stack up against Canadian credentials.
SINP’s Express Entry Sub-Category
In the last round of invitations, Saskatchewan issued 278 invitations to applicants 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 applicant pool for three of Canada’s major economy class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP).
If applicants from the Federal Express Entry pool also completed an Expression of Interest in Saskatchewan and scored 82 points on the SINP points assessment grid, they may have been selected in the September 24 draw.
Express Entry candidates who can receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their CRS score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residence.
SINP’s Subcategory Occupation in-demand
The In-Demand occupation sub-category is open to immigrant applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.
There were 257 candidates for in-demand occupations invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry subcategory, applicants had to achieve a provincial score of 82 to be selected.
The September 24 provincial draw issued invitations to applicants in 81 professions, including senior executives, sales representatives, and machine operators.
