Saskatchewan held a round of invitations, inviting 570 immigrant applicants on August 27. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited all 570 applicants from the International Skilled Worker category to the In-Demand Occupations subcategory.
The invited candidates had academic credential assessments. They also needed an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 68 if they had ties to the province or at least 10 years of work experience and language proficiency level(CLB) of at least 8. Otherwise, they needed at least 69 points.
Applicants were invited if they had work experience in one of the 50 eligible occupations. Some examples of eligible occupations include financial managers, human resource professionals, and occupational therapists, among others.
SINP Occupation in-demand category
The In-Demand occupation subcategory is a Basic Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which means it is open to immigrant applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.
This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an occupation in demand in Saskatchewan and who do not yet have a job offer in the province. To apply for Canadian immigration in this sub-category, foreign nationals must create an EOI profile through the SINP online application system.
Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigrant applicants who have the potential to thrive in the Prairie Province. Applicants will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language skills, age, and ties to the province demonstrate their ability to settle in Saskatchewan.
They then receive a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s international skilled worker points assessment grid. The highest-rated applicants then receive an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
Saskatchewan Nominee Programs – SINP
SINP has invited 3,256 immigration applicants to apply for an appointment so far this year. These applicants were invited to both the In-Demand Professions subcategory and the Saskatchewan Express Entry subcategory.
The Express Entry subcategory is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal Express Entry system.
Applicants with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.
Express Entry applicants who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their Federal Comprehensive Ranking System score and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
