In-Demand Occupation invitations reach a new high while minimum score plunges to record low
Saskatchewan invited 926 candidates under its International Skilled Worker sub-categories on November 1 to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
The combined invitations are the most issued yet in a single selection round in the four draws that have been held since the sub-category moved to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system.
671 Occupation In-Demand candidates with the lowest-ranked score of 61 points have received invitations in the latest round, which is the highest number of invitations and the lowest score yet selected for In-Demand Occupation candidates.
A total of 255 Express Entry candidates received invitation in this latest draw. The lowest-ranked Express Entry candidate invited had a score of 60; the lowest score selected in the four Express Entry EOI draws that have been held to date.
Express Entry candidates need to score at least 60 points on Saskatchewan’s point assessment grid. Apart from it, they must have relevant work experience in a high-skilled occupation found on the province’s in-Demand Occupations List.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan received an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, improving their position in the Express Entry pool.
The Occupation In-Demand sub-category is for eligible candidates outside the Express Entry system. These candidates must score at least 60 points on Saskatchewan’s point assessment grid along with having a minimum one year of work experience in the last 10 years in one of the Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations.
Candidates, who received an invitation to apply, need to submit their application and all required documents within 60 days.
