Saskatchewan in its latest draw invited 205 immigration candidates under SINP to apply for provincial nomination.
The invitations were issued in the draw held on March 26th. Candidates were not required to have a job offer to be selected, however, 1 year of work experience in an eligible occupation related to their field of study was required.
Notably, the draw was held after Canada announced its special coronavirus immigration measures on March 16th. While on March 18th federal Express Entry draw was held that selected provincial nominees only.
Saskatchewan under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory invited candidates who had Educational Credential Assessments, apart from that, the invited candidates either have studied at a post-secondary institution in the province or have a close family member in Saskatchewan.
College instructors, medical laboratory technologists, and corporate sales managers are a few occupations from the total 71 occupations selected in the draw.
Candidates were required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for SINP. EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates who have the potential to thrive economically in the province. Interested candidates are required to create an EOI profile, after which they are assessed on the basis of their education, language proficiency, work experience and connections to the province to check their ability of settling successfully in the province. Candidates are given a score out of 100 on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
The highest-scoring candidates are issued an invitation to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence (PR).
The minimum score required in the March 26th SINP draw was 75.
Saskatchewan provincial nominee programs
The SINP has issued invitations to 1124 Occupations In-Demand candidates this year so far. With 845 candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination through the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category, the total stands at 1969.
Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category is aligned with the federal Express Entry program, which manages the pool of candidates for 3 of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates with Express Entry profiles are still required to create EOI profiles for SINP to be considered for an ITA for a provincial nomination.
Express Entry candidates who are able to secure a provincial nomination are awarded 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points which effectively guarantees them an ITA for Canada Permanent Resident (PR) at the federal level.
