In a line-up to weekly PNP draws, Saskatchewan held a new nomination PNP draw on June 15. The province ended up inviting about 255 eligible immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
All the candidates have been invited under the ‘enhanced’ Express Entry & ‘base’ Occupations In-Demand Saskatchewan PNP streams. Upon receiving provincial nominations, the time taken to obtain permanent residency (PR) gets shorten drastically.
‘Enhanced’ Express Entry Stream: Out of the total 255 invitations, 103 invitations went to candidates who already had their profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal Express Entry pool is a database of interested applicants willing to obtain permanent residence in Canada. Originally, the federal pool of candidates manages three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. SINP stream Express Entry subcategory under the SINP can directly nominate select candidates from the pool.
‘Base’ Occupations In-Demand Stream: Out of the total 255 invitations, 152 invitations went to candidates who have specific work skills that are in demand in Saskatchewan. Those candidates who barely qualify to register a federal Express Entry profile may be nominated under the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.
Currently, all the invited candidates under SINP are selected within the list of 55 in-demand occupations.

How To Get Nominated In Future Saskatchewan PNP Draws?
To be considered for nominations under the upcoming Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) draws, candidates must register their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the provincial authority.
Candidates need to demonstrate their commitment to meaningfully settle in Saskatchewan by demonstrating their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.
Saskatchewan gives candidates a score out of 100 according to the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The province favors candidates with bilingual capability in both English and French. The highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.
Regardless of the provincial category, all invited candidates need an EOI score of at least 82 to be invited. It is also to be noted that the points requirement is that all the invited candidates must have valid Educational Credential Assessments.
Additionally, candidates already in the federal Express Entry pool need to register another EOI and choose Saskatchewan.
On successfully receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination, candidates are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. It will effectively guarantee an ITA for Canada PR in the subsequent Express Entry draw conducted by IRCC.
We could see Canada inviting over 80,800 new permanent residents through various PNP streams. This would include business entrepreneurs, international students graduates in that province, foreign skilled workers, specifically skilled tech workers, critical workers, etc. Moreover, 2021 began with Express Entry Draws that invited only those candidates who had a prior provincial nomination to apply for Canada PR.
