Home » Saskatchewan Invites 534 Candidates To Apply For Provincial Nomination

Saskatchewan immigration held a new round of draw, inviting 534 candidates on November 3.

The Saskatchewan Immigration department invited candidates from the International Skilled Worker category via two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand. They issued invitations to 534 candidates.

In order to be invited in this draw, immigration candidates from both sub-categories required to have filed Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles with thethe immigration department. Both needed candidates to have a minimum cut-off score of sixty-eight (68), but from there the requirements differed.

The 272 invited Express Entry candidates could only be eligible for an invitation with sixty-eight (68) points if they had ten (10) years of work experience and a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 8 or higher. Otherwise, they would need an EOI score of sixty-nine (69) or more. There were fourty-seven (47) occupations included in the draw under the Express Entry subcategory.

The 262 immigration candidates invited under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory all required Educational Credential Assessments. A total of fifty-five (55) 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 272 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 sixty-eight (68) on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they may have been selected during the Sept. 24 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 any one 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 262 Occupations In-Demand individuals invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry sub-category, candidates require a provincial score of sixty-eight (68) in order to be chosen.
