104 invited in Saskatchewan's newest PNP draw for Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates.

Saskatchewan invited 104 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on January 12.

In its first draw of the year, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited candidates to apply through two of its immigration streams. Of those invited, 37 may be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 67 may be eligible for the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.

The lowest-scoring candidate from each sub-category had 68 points on Saskatchewan’s Expression of Interest (EOI) ranking system.

In this draw, Saskatchewan invited candidates with work experience in one of six occupations:
• medical laboratory technologists,
• paramedical occupations,
• psychologists,
• medical sonographers,
• occupational therapists, and
• medical radiation technologists.


Candidates from both categories also needed Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard.
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.
