295 INVITED IN SASKATCHEWAN PNP DRAW
July 08, 2021
The new Saskatchewan draw targeted Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates with work experience in one of 62 occupations.
Saskatchewan held a new draw on July 8, inviting 295 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
The invitations went to candidates who may be eligible for a nomination from the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), specifically from the International Skilled Worker category. Of those invited, 99 may be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 196 through the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.
Regardless of the stream, invited candidates needed an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 80 in order to be invited. They also needed Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard. Plus, work experience in one of the 62 in-demand occupations listed on the government webpage.
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), meaning it is open to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile.
This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan, who do not yet have a job offer in the province.
In order to apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category, foreign nationals need to create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system.
Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their ability to settle in Saskatchewan.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
