On September 15, Saskatchewan invited a total of 621 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
To be invited to this draw, applicants from both sub-categories had to have submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles to the SINP. They were also required to have work experience in one of the following three technology professions:
Invited applicants in both categories also took academic credential assessments, which show how foreign degrees, diplomas, and certificates stack up against Canadian credentials.
SINP uses the EOI system to select the candidates most likely to succeed in the regional labor market. Applicants must demonstrate their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan by highlighting their work experience, education, language skills, age, and connection 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 candidates then receive an invitation to apply for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination.
The minimum score required for the September 15 draws was 68 for both subcategories. Those who received the invitation with the minimum score had to have connections in the province or at least 10 years of work experience and a Canadian language proficiency level of eight. Everyone needed a score of at least 69.
In the last round of invitations, Saskatchewan sent out 455 invitations to applicants who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal Express Entry system manages the applicant pool for three of Canada’s major economy class immigration programs: the Skilled Worker Program, the Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
If applicants from the Federal Express Entry pool also completed an Expression of Interest in Saskatchewan and scored 68 points on the SINP Points Assessment Grid, they may have been invited to the last draw.
Express Entry candidates who can get a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their 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 in the 400s. The latest Express Entry draw invited applicants with scores of at least 472.
The same is true for all Provincial Nominee Programs in Canada that are aligned with Express Entry.
The In-Demand Professions sub-category is open to immigrant applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.
There were 166 candidates for in-demand occupations invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry subcategory, applicants needed a provincial score of 68 to be selected.
