The Saskatchewan province of Canada has increased the number of annual intake of application for two of its famous immigration programs of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
It is expected that more application will be accepted before the end of the year 2017.
the number of allocations has been increased in International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category of SINP and the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.
These programs were first launched in 2015 and both of them have turned out to be popular among a wide range of aspiring immigrants. An applicant is not required to have a job offer from a Canadian employer for any of these sub-categories.
An applicant once selected is issued a provincial nomination, which can be used to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The primary applicant can also include the spouse / common-law partner as well as dependent children in the application submitted.
The applicant is however, required to have work experience in any of the occupation that is in demand to apply for any of the sub-category. A minimum score of at least 60 points is required out of 100 points on the SINP assessment grid.
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category enables applicants in receiving nomination certificate, which they can use to apply for permanent residence of Canada outside the Express Entry immigration system that is run by the federal government of Canada.
This stream can become very useful to those people who have not yet come in the Express Entry pool. The language requirement of this immigration stream is lower when compared with any program that runs under the Express Entry immigration system.
Candidates are required to have an Express Entry profile in order to apply for any of the sub-category of Express Entry immigration system.
A successful candidate receives 600 additional points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This takes them at the front of the line for the upcoming draw from the Express Entry pool.
