Saskatchewan PNP invited applicants from the International Skilled Worker category in two sub-categories: Express Entry and In-Demand Occupations. They sent a total of 564 invitations to immigrant applicants who had work experience in certain professions. A total of 138 were invited in the Express Entry sub-category and 426 invitations were sent to candidates for in-demand occupations.
To get an invitation in the latest round of invitations, applicants from both sub-categories must have submitted Expressions of Interest (EOI) profiles to the SINP. Regardless of the category, invited applicants needed an EOI score of at least 74 to be invited. This is the minimum requirement of Saskatchewan PNP not for the CRS. The invited candidates had diploma evaluations.
The invited candidates also needed work experience in one of the 86 professions. To see which occupations were included, visit the government web page.
Saskatchewan PNP uses the EOI system to select the candidates most likely to succeed in the regional labor market. Immigrants who want to apply for a provincial nomination through SINP must demonstrate their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan by highlighting their work experience, education, language skills, age, and connection to the province.
Based on the above mentioned five factors, SINP assesses applicants and assign them a score out of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. Higher ranked profiles then receive an invitation to apply for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination.
Recently, Saskatchewan has started giving more EOI points to people who speak English and French.
SINP’s Express Entry and Occupation In-demand sub-category
In this provincial draw, Saskatchewan sent out 138 invitations to applicants who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal government’s Express Entry program manages the applicant pool for three of Canada’s major economy class immigration programs: the Skilled Worker Program (Federal), the Skilled Trades Program (Federal), and the Canadian Experience Class.
If applicants from the Federal Express Entry pool also completed an Expression of Interest in Saskatchewan and scored 74 points on the SINP point assessment grid, they may have been invited to the last draw.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination from SINP receive an additional 600 points for their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This award ensures that they will be invited to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw, as most invitation rounds invite applicants with scores over 470.
SINP’s In-Demand Occupations sub-category is open to immigrant applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile. This program is for immigrant applicants who have work experience in labor-intensive occupations in Saskatchewan.
There were 426 in-demand occupational candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and as with the Express Entry subcategory, applicants needed a provincial score of 74 to be selected.
