Saskatchewan PNP invites applicants from the International Skilled Worker category in two sub-categories: Express Entry and In-Demand Occupations. They sent a total of 551 invitations to immigrant applicants who had work experience in certain professions.
To get invited in this latest round of invitations, applicants from both sub-categories must have submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles to the SINP. Unlike the previous draw, each category had a slightly different scoring requirement.
The 214 Express Entry candidates needed an EOI score of at least 78 to be invited. This is the provincial requirement and not the limit of the Comprehensive Ranking System. The invited candidates had credential assessments and work experience in one of the 56 professions.
The 337 applicants invited to the In-Demand Professions subcategory also required a credential assessment. 75 occupations were included in this latest draw.
Saskatchewan PNP uses an EOI system that allows them to nominate skilled candidates who have the most potential to succeed in the local labour market. Points are awarded to the EOI profiles of the candidates on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. These points are based on work experience, age, language skills, education, and connection to the province. Higher ranked profiles are then invited to apply for provincial nomination.
Basics on Saskatchewan PNP
In the last provincial draw, Saskatchewan sent out 214 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 (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 78 points on the SINP points assessment grid, they may have been invited to the last draw.
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination, their CRS score is given a major boost of 600 points. 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.
The In-Demand Occupations sub-category is open to immigrants who do not have a profile in the federal government’s Express Entry program. This SINP’s subcategory is for immigrants who have work experience in labor-intensive occupations in Saskatchewan.
There were 337 candidates for in-demand occupations invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry subcategory, applicants needed a provincial score of 80 to be selected.
