The province of Saskatchewan issued 525 invitations to Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in latest EOI draw held on November 12, 2019.
A total of 303 invitations went to candidates with an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile in the province’s Express Entry sub-category, while the remaining 222 invites were issued to candidates with an EOI profile in the Occupation In-Demand sub-category.
The minimum cut-off score in the November 12 draw for both sub-categories was 69.
The November 12th invitation round targeted candidates in 94 eligible occupations that include database analysts and administrators, power system operators, drafting technologists & technicians, human resource managers and power engineers.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified foreign workers for Canadian permanent residence through several categories tailored to province’s various economic and labour market needs and assesses the eligibility of skilled workers for these two immigration sub-categories on a points basis.
Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories are most popular streams within the SINP as these do not require candidate to have a job offer in Saskatchewan.
In order to apply for a provincial nomination through either of these streams, candidates need to first register an EOI with the SINP.
Eligible EOIs are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
High-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the SINP.
Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
The November 12 draw brings the total number of invitations issued by SINP to candidates in both Express Entry and Occupations In-demand sub-categories to 5,229 over the course of 12 draws held since September 25.
The invited candidates now have 60 days to submit their complete application to Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
