Saskatchewan has been quite the active province in meeting the demands by taking in potential immigrants this year. Saskatchewan has been conducting draws on a frequent basis only to ensure that the in-demand occupations of the province are being met.
In the draw held on the 1st of May, Saskatchewan invited 202 candidates who have work experience in the specified occupations to apply for a provincial nomination. Candidates who receive a provincial nomination will get 600 additional CRS scores which ensure their chances to receive an Invitation to Apply.
Below mentioned are the occupations that were considered as priority and candidates who had relevant work experience under the same received an invitation to apply for provincial nomination.
- Managers in Social, Community & Correctional Services
- Conference & Event Planners
- Medical Sonographers
- Instructors of Persons with Disabilities
All the above-mentioned occupations were considered as in-demand occupations and work experience was considered as one of the key eligibility factors. It should also be noted that a job offer is not required.
The draw held on the 1st of May was the second of the same kind draw. A similar draw was held on the 17th April and invited candidates who had work experience in certain occupations and the same were removed after the particular draw.
An applicant in order to be eligible should first have created an Expression of Interest Profile to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
