Latest Saskatchewan EOI Draws Invite Express Entry & Occupation In-Demand Candidates

Latest Saskatchewan EOI Draws

Saskatchewan held its first Expression of Interest (EOI) draws on February 16, resulting in 421 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence (PR). 

All the invited candidates belonged to either of the two Saskatchewan PNP streams: the ‘enhanced’ Express Entry or ‘base’ Occupations In-Demand. The selected occupation list includes Managers in Healthcare, Manufacturing, Medical Administrators, Aircraft/Avionics technicians, and more. 

An Overview of SINP Draws- February 16, 2023
Category  Minimum EOI score  Total candidates invited
Occupations In-Demand EOI 84 243
Express Entry  EOI 84 177
Express Entry & Occupations In-Demand candidates invited had Educational Credential Assessments. 

The invitations targeted 104 National Occupational Classification codes. 

‘Enhanced’ Express Entry Stream: Out of the total 421 invitations, 177 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. Certain streams under the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) can also select eligible candidates from the pool.

‘Base’ Occupations In-Demand Stream: Out of the total 421 invitations, 243 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.

Qualify for Upcoming 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 province which will be valid for one year.  

Candidates need to 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 invited to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.

Regardless of the provincial category, all invited candidates need an EOI score of at least 84 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.
