The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) conducted the latest International Skilled Worker draw on June 20 in which 479 candidates with work experience in one of the five targeted occupations were invited to apply for provincial nomination. The candidates selected in the draw belonged to the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories of SINP. To qualify under both of these subcategories, the candidates are supposed to have work experience in one of the in-demand occupations of Saskatchewan.
The following occupations were targeted in the June 20 SINP draw:
- Accounting technicians
- Architectural technologists and technicians
- Paramedical occupations
- Medical laboratory technologists
Out of the total 479 invitations issued in the latest draw, 268 were issued to Express Entry candidates. The remaining 211 invitations were issued to candidates of the Occupation In-Demand sub-category of SINP.
SINP Expression of Interest
The first step to be considered under either the Express Entry or the Occupation In-Demand sub category of the SINP is to submit an Expression of interest. The Expression of Interest includes information regarding all the basic eligibility factors such as education, work experience and language proficiency. Based on these factors, each profile is awarded a score out of 100. Saskatchewan invites the highest scoring candidates to apply for provincial nomination in the regular draws. The minimum score of candidates invited in the June 20 draw, in both sub-categories, was 68.
Saskatchewan has so far issued 1166 invitations to Express Entry candidates and 1407 invitations Occupation In-Demand candidates in 2019. The Express Entry candidates who are nominated by Saskatchewan will obtain 600 additional CRS score points, which would ensure them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
