Saskatchewan Invites 986 Express Entry Candidates To Apply For Permanent Residence

Saskatchewan invited 986 Express Entry candidates with specific work experience in some occupations, to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence of Canada in the province’s biggest-ever Expression of Interest draw.

The 986 express entry candidates invited were in the federal Express Entry system who had registered and valid profiles with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

The SINP permits Saskatchewan to choose immigration applicants with skills needed in the province’s labour market.

986 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence

The 986 invites were the most rolled out in a single draw via the SINP’s Expression of Interest (EOI) system, which was launched in July 2018 to manage the pool of applicants for the Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration routes.

The SINP’s Express Entry pathway is aligned to the federal Express Entry platform, which manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three main economic immigration streams — the Canadian Experience Class and the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class.

A provincial nominations result in an extra 600 points added toward an Express Entry candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and practically assured an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in an upcoming Express Entry invitation round.

986 Express Entry candidates do not need to have a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer in order to be qualified for a nomination from the SINP. But, work experience in an eligible occupation that is linked with their field of study is required, among other requirements.

The October 17 draw rolled out invitations to Express Entry candidates with work experience in the following twelve (12) occupations. “NOC” means the profession’s ‘National Occupational Classification code’.

  • Retail and wholesale trade manager (NOC 0621)
  • Restaurant and foodservice manager (NOC 0631)
  • Construction manager (NOC 0711)
  • Manager in agriculture (NOC 0821)
  • Other financial officers (NOC 1114)
  • Accounting technician and bookkeepers (NOC 1311)
  • Information systems analyst and consultants (NOC 2171)
  • Social and community service workers (NOC 4212)
  • Early childhood instructors and assistants (NOC 4214)
  • Technical sales specialist – wholesale trade (NOC 6221)
  • Heavy-duty equipment mechanic (NOC 7312)
  • Automotive service technicians, truck and bus mechanic and mechanical repairer (NOC 7321)

Express Entry candidates invited in the SINP’s October 17 draw had a minimum score of Sixty-seven (67) under the SINP’s EOI points grid.

This score is based on certain factors including age, educational qualifications, work experience, abilities in English or French and attachment to Saskatchewan, among others.

The SINP says a candidate’s Expression of Interest score and occupation are the “major factors” when determining who it invites to apply for Saskatchewan provincial nomination.

Over 200 occupations are now eligible for consideration under the SINP’s Express Entry system and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
