Saskatchewan EOI Draw Targets the Revised Occupation In-Demand List Candidates

Saskatchewan EOI Draw Targets Revised Occupation In-Demand List Candidates

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) first time targeted skilled immigrants having work experience in specific occupation via EOI draw held on April 17. With four targeted occupations three were a new addition to the SINP’s occupation in demand list that was revised recently on April 4.

Expression of Interest system allows the province of Saskatchewan to search for the capable immigrants who have registered under express entry program and Occupation in-demand subcategory. Latest EOI draw allowed SINP to select the candidates who were having work experience in selected occupations and those occupations were as follows:

  • Land Surveyors (NOC code – 2154)
  • Technical Operations in Geomatics and Meteorology (NOC code – 2255)
  • Tailors, Dressmakers, Furriers, and Milliners (NOC code – 6342)
  • Appliance Servicers and Repairers (NOC code – 7332)

A total of 324 invitations were issued in the latest EOI draw to the candidates registered under Express entry and Occupation in-demand subcategory. In order to be eligible to apply via these sub-categories, the candidate needs to have eligible work experience in an occupation that is in demand in the province. Having a job-offer is not mandatory.

Express entry registered candidates’ needs to submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile separately with SINP. On landing the provincial nomination, express entry candidates are awarded 600 CRS points which effectively guarantees the candidate of getting the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Now, SINP also uses a point system to select skilled and capable immigrants for permanent residency in the province. SINP’s EOI awards maximum of 100 points based on factors like educational qualification, work experience, age and language proficiency, etc. In case the candidate is having a “connection” in the province of Saskatchewan, they are also awarded points for the same.

Mainly SINP issues the Invitation to apply for a nomination for Canada permanent residence to the highest ranked profile but except the latest EOI draw where specific occupations were targeted. April 17 draw has the minimum point score cut-off for both the categories – Express entry and Occupation in-demand set at 60 points. The point requirement of 60 was the lowest for occupation in-demand sub category registered candidate since its introduction in July 2018. The two prior draws for Express entry sub-category registered candidates have seen the point cut-off reach 60 points.

Occupation in-demand list revised with the latest SINP EOI draw

With the latest draw on April 17, Saskatchewan Immigration office announced that they have revised their occupation in-demand list.

Previously SINP occupation in-demand list consists of 24 occupations but with the latest changes in the latest 4 occupations were removed bring the total to 20 occupations (including computer programmers and Interactive Media Developers) that are in-demand in the province. Removed occupations were as follows:

  • Land Surveyors
  • Technical Occupations in Geomatics and Meteorology
  • Tailors, Dressmakers, Furriers, and Milliners
  • Appliance Servicers and Repairers

SINP’s Occupation in-demand list is majorly updated on yearly basis, but Saskatchewan immigration office said, “It can change at any time based on the number of invitations issued and labor market demand in Saskatchewan.” It was also stated that the immigrants who were able to get the ITA prior to the removal of their occupation from the demand list can still continue to apply for Canada PR visa.
