A total of 576 Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in the Saskatchewan Expression of Interest draw held on February 27. The selected candidates in both categories had a minimum score of 69.
Saskatchewan Expression of Interest
Saskatchewan’s Expression of Interest system enables the province to select immigration applicants capable of economically establishing themselves in the province and nominate them for permanent residence in Canada. The first step in obtaining provincial nomination through the Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system is submitting an Expression of Interest to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program(SINP). Each of the Expression of Interest profiles submitted to the SINP is assessed and awarded a score out of 100 based on various eligibility factors such as age, education qualification, language proficiency etc. The highest-scoring candidates receive an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan in the Expression of Interest draws. Though it is not mandatory for a candidate to have a job offer, they must have at least one year of work experience in a skilled occupation that is related to their field of study.
Saskatchewan Express Entry
The latest Saskatchewan Expression of Interest draw issued 301 invitations to candidates belonging to the Express Entry sub-category. To be considered for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, the candidates must submit a separate Expression of Interest to the SINP. Those who receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan will have 600 Comprehensive Ranking System score points added to their total CRS score. In the subsequent federal Express Entry draw, they would also receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand
Occupations In-Demand sub-category gives a chance to those immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile to apply for provincial nomination from Saskatchewan. The number of Occupations In-Demand candidates who received invitations in the latest draw is 275.
