Big Saskatchewan Draw sees 858 Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand Candidates

At the end of the month of October, province of Saskatchewan held another big provincial draw that sees Express entry and Occupation in-demand candidates invited for provincial nomination for Canada permanent resident visa.

A total 858 invitations were issued on October 31 that continued a six-week string of major draws via Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) popular immigration pathways for which having a job offer or Canadian work experience is not mandatory to be eligible.


For candidates to be considered for Saskatchewan provincial nomination through either of the sub-categories: Express Entry and Occupation in-demand, candidates have to register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the province. EOI profile of the candidates will be awarded points out of 100, based on the factors like education, skilled work experience, language proficiency in English or French and connection to the province.


Eligible candidates under both of the sub-categories with a score of 69 points or more were issued the invitations. Candidates with a score of 68 points were also selected with work experience of 10 years of work experience and language proficiency of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of 7 or higher.

Higher ranked profiles are then issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) via regularly held provincial draws by SINP.

SINP’s has a stream that is in-line with the federal government’s Express entry program that allows SINP to search for the required candidates in the express pool – SINP’s Express Entry subcategory. Express entry, a point-based program manages the pool of the candidates registered under Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.  For an express entry candidate to get a provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.


Other SINP’s sub-category is Occupation in-demand. It allows the immigrants who do not have an Express profile to apply for provincial nomination.

 Since September 25th, SINP has held six selection rounds via its Express Entry and Occupation in-demand subcategories. These draws are in line with SINP’s adoption of new approach to the occupations to be eligible under both of the subcategories. To be eligible both of the sub-categories require candidates to have minimum of one year of work experience in an occupation that is in-demand in the province.  Since the change from a limited in-demand Occupations list to an Excluded Occupations list, the number of eligible occupations has risen from 19 to more than 200 occupations.


The latest provincial draw of October 31st draw issued invitations to the candidates that represented 58 occupations such as Human Resource professionals, Information systems analysts and consultants, Database analysts and data administrators, drafting technologists and technicians, and Aircraft mechanics and aircraft inspectors.
