Saskatchewan Held New Provincial Draws Giving 269 Invites For Canada PR


Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 269 eligible immigration candidates through a new PNP draw on April 22. 


All the invited candidates received an invitation to apply for provincial nominations for permanent residence in Canada under SINP’s International Skilled Worker category. 

Further, the results were divided as: 

  • 130 invites to the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 
  • 139 through the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.

The April 22 SINP draw invited candidates with an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 70 out of 100 points. All the 269 candidates were even required to submit Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard.

Qualify for Upcoming SINP draws

Granting permanent residency certificates comes under the exclusive jurisdiction of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Canadian provinces can only fasten the process by issuing provincial nominations to desirable candidates through any of its PNP streams. 

Canada PNP streams are further aligned with the federal Expres Entry system. They are classified into the ‘enhanced’ provincial category and ‘base’ provincial stream. 

‘Enhanced’ Express Entry sub-category

The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced PNP under the scheme of SINP. 

As the stream is linked to the federal Express Entry system, it can directly pick eligible candidates to invite them to apply for provincial nominations. 

The federal Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. A separate Expression of Interest (EOI) must be submitted by candidates willing to be considered for a provincial nomination by SINP. 

Any profile registered in the pool is evaluated and ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The scoring criteria involve the consideration of candidates’ age, education, work experience, language proficiency in English or French, 

Additionally, those who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points at the federal level. This is sufficient to receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in the subsequent Express Entry draws

‘Base’ Occupation In-Demand sub-category

Under it is a ‘base’ provincial stream, the Occupations In-Demand sub-category is open to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile.

Usually, highly skilled workers with experience and without a job offer in the province, in occupations like utility managers, medical laboratory technicians, and miners, among 61 in-demand occupations qualify under this sub-category. 

Any eligible candidates must create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system to be considered for provincial nomination. Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their ability to settle in Saskatchewan. They receive a score out of 100 and the highest-scoring individuals may receive an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

Saskatchewan had a great run since the PNP draws resumed after the initial travel restrictions imposed due to curb the spread of pandemics. The province has regularly conducted its provincial draws inviting eligible foreign workers to come a step closer to permanent residency.
