Saskatchewan immigration department held a new round of invitations on November 19 inviting 551 immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited candidates from the International Skilled Worker category via two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand. They issued invitations to 551 immigration candidates who had work experience in certain occupations.
In order to be invited in this draw, immigration candidates from both sub-categories were required to have lodged Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles with the SINP. Unlike the last draw, each category score requirement differs.
The 214 immigration candidates needed an EOI score of at least Seventy-eight (78) in order to be invited. This is the provincial requirement, not the Comprehensive Ranking System cutoff.
Invited applicants had Educational Credential Assessments, and work experience in one of fifty-Six (56) occupations.

The 337 Express Entry candidates invited under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory also need Educational Credential Assessments. A total of Seventy-five (75) occupations were included in this draw.
The SINP uses the Expression Of Interest system to select the candidates that have the most potential to succeed in the regional labor market. Candidates need to show their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan province by showcasing their age, education, work experience, language ability, age, and ties to the province.
The SINP uses these five factors to evaluate candidates and give them a score out of One hundred (100) on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then sent out an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan province.
Express Entry sub-category
In this new invitation round, Saskatchewan sent out 241 invitations to candidates who had valid profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category is aligned to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of applicants for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, 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-eight (78) on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they may have been selected in the latest draw.
Express Entry candidates who apply for and obtain a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan province are awarded an extra 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score at the federal level, and are practically assured an invitation to apply for permanent residence, as most invitation rounds invite candidates with scores above 470.
The same goes for anyone of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs that are linked with Express Entry.
Occupations In-Demand sub-category
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is open to those candidates who do not have a valid federal Express Entry profile. This program is for immigration candidates who possess work experience in occupations that have labor shortages in Saskatchewan province.
There were 337 Occupations In-Demand individuals invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry sub-category, candidates require a provincial score of Eighty (80) in order to be chosen.Share with friends
