Qualifying for Upcoming Saskatchewan PNP Draws
Saskatchewan is showing a departure from its usual pattern by holding PNP draws on a weekly basis throughout July. Earlier, the province would only hold draws once per month. In order 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 must demonstrate their commitment to meaningfully settling 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 issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.
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.
