Saskatchewan issued 325 new invitations to candidates under its Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration sub-categories to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in new draws held on May 22.
Out of the total 325 invitations issued, 221 went to Occupation In-Demand candidates while 104 went to candidates in Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category.
Both these sub-categories are key components of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), which allows Saskatchewan to nominate economic immigration candidates who meet specific labour requirements in the province.
A key eligibility requirement for candidates to apply under these sub-categories of the SINP is to have a work experience in one of the 19 occupations that are currently listed as in-demand in the province. However, a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer is not mandatory.
The May 22nd draws bring the total number of invitations issued by SINP so far in 2019 through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category to 854 and 814 through its Express Entry sub-category, which is linked to the federal Express Entry system.
In order to be considered for either sub-category, interested candidates have to first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) under the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Category.
Eligible candidates are then receive a score out of 100 based on various factors including their education, skilled work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan. The highest-scoring candidates are then invited through regular draws from the EOI pool.
The lowest score among both Express Entry and the Occupation In-Demand candidates invited in the May 22nd draws was 82.
