Saskatchewan invites 502 candidates to apply for permanent residence in an invitation round conducted by the province on July 29.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited applicants from the International Skilled Worker category through two subcategories: Occupations In-Demand, and Express Entry.
In order to be considered in this draw, candidates from both sub-categories needed to have lodged Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles with the SINP.
The SINP uses the Express of Interest (EOI) system to select the applicants that have the most potential to thrive in the Saskatchewan province. Candidates need to show their commitment to building a life in prairie province by showcasing their age, work experience, education or qualifications, language ability, and ties to the province.
The SINP uses these five factors to examine candidates and gives them a score out of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-scoring applicants are then granted an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from the Saskatchewan province.
The minimum score required in the July 29 draws was Seventy (70) for both sub-categories.
Express Entry Sub-category
In the latest invitation round, Saskatchewan rolled out 254 invitations to immigration candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s economic class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Trades Program, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
If candidates in the federal Express Entry pool also filled out an Expression of Interest for Saskatchewan, and they scored Seventy (70) on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they could have been invited in the latest draw.
Candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan province are awarded an extra 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This award practically assures that they will be invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence in future federal Express Entry draw.
Occupations In-Demand Sub-category
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is available to Express Entry candidates who do not have a valid federal Express Entry profile.
There were approximately 248 Occupations In-Demand candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry sub-category, candidates require a provincial score of Seventy (70) in order to be chosen.
