Saskatchewan Invites 922 Candidates In Another Major Selection Round

Saskatchewan immigration conducted another major selection round for candidates in its Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-category, rolling out 922 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence of Canada in its October 24 draws.

The latest invitations were among a series of high-invitation selection round for these popular Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) sub-streams, neither of which requires an employment offer in Saskatchewan or Canadian work experience to be qualified.

The SINP’s Express Entry sub-stream is aligned to the federal Express Entry system, which regulates the pool of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Class.

The Occupation In-Demand sub-category is available to immigration candidates who don’t have a valid Express Entry profile.

Nine (9) Major Selection Round of draws since September 25 and nearly 4,000 invitations 

The Saskatchewan immigration authority has now held five selection round through its Express Entry sub-stream and four for Occupation In-Demand applicants since September 25. A sum of 3,846 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination has been rolled out to applicants in both sub-categories in the course of these nine invitation rounds.

The draws follow the SINP’s adoption of a new approach to the occupation that are considered qualified under the two sub-categories, which both needing a minimum of one year of work experience in an occupation that is considered in-demand in Saskatchewan province and is related to their field of study, among other requirements.

The new approach saw the SINP launched an Excluded Occupations List that dramatically increased the number of eligible occupations from Nineteen (19) to more than two-hundred (200).

The five draws conducted since then have sent out invitations to candidates with work experience in a large number of occupations and the 130 occupations included in the October 24 draw was the biggest range yet.

Occupations included in this latest draw spanned across professional, managerial, and technical/skilled trades professions.

Expression of Interest

In order to be qualified for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan via either sub-category, applicants must register an Expression of Interests, or EOI, with Saskatchewan.

Eligible applicants for both sub-categories are assigned a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Point Assessment Grid, which considers factors such as age, educational qualification, skilled work experience, abilities in English or French and attachment to Saskatchewan.

The highest-ranked persons are issued an invitation to apply through regular draws held by the SINP.

Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidate invited on October 24 had a minimum score of sixty-nine (69).

Express Entry candidates who apply for and obtained a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan are granted an extra 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are practically assured an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
