The Province of Saskatchewan invited a total of 252 immigration candidates in the latest provincial draw held on May 28 who have applied for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa.
The latest provincial draw is the first Express entry-aligned PNP draw out of the province of Saskatchewan since the implementation of travel restrictions. The previous draw was held on March 26 and that was only for Occupation-in demand categories.
In order to be invited to this draw, candidates from the two subcategories must have submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles to SINP.
The SINP uses the EOI system to select the candidates who have the most potential to thrive in the province. Applicants must demonstrate their commitment to building a life in the province by presenting their work experience, education, language skills, age, and a strong connection to the province.
The SINP uses these five factors to assess candidates and give them a score out of 100 points on the grid of points for international skilled workers. The highest-ranked candidates then receive an invitation to submit a provincial nomination from SINP.
The minimum score required for the May 28 draws was 78 for both subcategories.
In the last round of invitations, Saskatchewan issued 127 invitations to candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal Express Entry system manages the pool of applicants for three of Canada’s three main economy skilled class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
If applicants from the Federal Express Entry group also completed an EOI for Saskatchewan and obtained 78 points in the SINP point scorecard, they may have been invited to the last draw.
Express Entry applicants who request and receive a provincial nomination from the Province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their score in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This award puts them in a good position to be invited to apply for a Canada PR Visa in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
The Profession in demand subcategory is open to immigration applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.
There were 125 applicants for in-demand occupations invited to apply for a provincial appointment and, like the Express Entry subcategory, candidates had to obtain a provincial score of 78 to be selected.
