Saskatchewan PNP Invited 564 Immigrants
On December 1, Saskatchewan held its latest draw. The province has invited a total of 564 candidates in this draw. The SINP invited candidates under the International Skilled Worker category. However, this program invited candidates under two subcategories: Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry Visa Canada.
Candidates having work experience in specific occupations are eligible for this program. 564 candidates received invitations. However, 138 candidates were those who applied under the Express Entry subcategory, and 426 candidates are those who applied under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory.
In order to get an invitation to this draw, candidates from both sub-categories submitted their EOI profiles. Candidates submitted their EOI profiles with SINP. Moreover, invited candidates needed to get at least 74 EOI scores to get an invitation. However, this is the provincial requirement but not the CRS cutoff. Candidates who received invitations in this draw had Educational Credential Assessments.
Moreover, invited candidates also need to demonstrate their work experience in any of 86 occupations. You can check the list of occupations on the official government webpage.
The SINP makes use of the EOI system for selecting the candidates having the most potential to contribute to the regional labor market. Moreover, candidates also need to show their commitment towards building a life in Saskatchewan. Candidates need to show their work experience, age, language ability, and connection to the province.
The SINP assess the candidates according to these five factors and give them a score out of 100. Candidates get their scores on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. However, the candidates having the highest scores get an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination in Saskatchewan. A few days ago, Saskatchewan announced to give more EOI points to people who can speak English and French.
Express Entry Sub-category
In this latest draw, invitations were issued to 138 candidates who registered their federal Express Entry pool profiles. This system processes the applications of candidates and manages the pool of candidates under three main economic-class programs of Canada:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Canadian Experience Class
- Federal Skilled Trades Program
Candidates who have applied under federal Express Entry and also registered their EOI profile for Saskatchewan and scored 74 points. Such are the candidates who received invitations in the latest draw.
Express Entry candidates who applied for PNP and received the nomination from Saskatchewan get additional 600 CRS points. These points guarantee them that they will surely get ITA for PR in the coming draw.
The same process works for any of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs that are associated with Express Entry.
This subcategory is open for candidates who don’t have a federal Express Entry profile. This program is especially for immigration candidates who are having work experience. However, the candidates will need to show their work experience in occupations that are facing labor shortages in Saskatchewan. A total of 426 candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination. However, the candidate needed a score of 74 to get an invitation.
