Saskatchewan conducted a recent draw on June 20th, selecting applicants from the Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker pool. A total of 479 invitations were sent to immigration candidates with work experience in one of five targeted occupations.
The International Skilled Worker category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) allows the province to nominate foreign workers for Canadian permanent residence.
The invitations went to candidates in Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories, both of which require work experience in an occupation listed as in-demand in the province.
Candidates having work experience in the following five occupations were targeted in the June 20th draw:
A total of 268 invitations went to candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system who has also registered a profile with the SINP. The remaining 211 invitations went to immigration candidates in the SINP’s Occupation In-Demand sub-category. The lowest score in this draw was 68 in both the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through either sub-category, the first required step is to register an Expression of Interest, or EOI, with Saskatchewan.
To enter the Express Entry pool, candidates need to create a separate Expression of Interest, which outlines the candidate’s education, work experience, proficiency in English or French, among other factors, and awards them a score out of 100 points based on the information provided.
Candidates with the highest scores in both the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand pools are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws.
In 2019, Saskatchewan has so far issued 1,166 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to Express Entry candidates and 1,407 to Occupation In-Demand candidates.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively fast-tracked for an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
