In the latest Expression of Interest (EOI) draw, the provincial government of Saskatchewan invited a total of 595 skilled immigrants who have applied for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence through Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
The draw was held on December 20, where the candidate was not required t have a job offer to qualify, just required to submit an EOI with the SINP. They were required to have a minimum of one year of work experience in an eligible skilled work experience that must be related to their field of study.
EOI profiles of the candidates, who have applied under SINP, are awarded points out of 100 that are awarded on the basis of SINP point’s assessment grid. Highest scoring EOI profiles are then issued Invitations through regularly held provincial draws.
In the draw of December 20, a total of 304 invitations were issued to the Express Entry candidates through SINP’s Express Entry sub-category.

Express Entry candidates with the minimum score of 69 points in the SINP assessment grid, were issued the invitations in the latest round. For an express entry candidate to land a provincial nomination, they are given a major boost of 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. These many points effectively make sure that the candidate gets an ITA (Invitation to Apply) to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
291 invitations were issued to the candidates who have applied under SINP’s Occupation in-demand. Candidates under this sub-category are also required to have a minimum of 69 points under SINP’s point assessment grid.
With the latest round of invitations, SINP has now issued a total of 6,284 invitations to a candidate under both sub-categories since the overhauling of the Occupation in-demand list. SINP has updated its list of eligible occupations for both sub-categories from 19 to more than 200 occupations.
December 20 draw saw invitations issued to the candidates representing total 96 occupations like supervisors, corporate sales managers, finance and insurance office workers; and paralegals.
