325 invitations issued to Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates by Saskatchewan
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 325 immigration candidates to apply for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination through its International Skilled Worker Category on May 22, 2019.
The International Skilled Worker Category consists of three sub-categories: Employment offer, Saskatchewan Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand.
Employment offer category requires candidates to have a job offer in Saskatchewan. The Saskatchewan Express Entry category and Occupation In-Demand category require candidates to have work experience in one of the 19 occupations that are currently listed as in-demand in the province. However, a job offer in Saskatchewan is not required for the two sub-categories. Please see the latest Occupation In-Demand list at the bottom of the page.
221 out of the 325 invitations went to Occupation In-Demand candidates. The rest 104 went to candidates in Saskatchewan Express Entry category.
A minimum of 60 out of 100 points on the SINP point assessment grid is needed to be considered for a provincial nomination. However, only the highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply. In the May 22 draw, the lowest score among both the Express Entry and the Occupation In-Demand candidates invited was 82.
So far in 2019, SINP has invited 854 Occupation In-Demand candidates and 814 Saskatchewan Express Entry candidates. The Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category is linked to the Federal Express Entry system, which is an online system managing the pool of immigration candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which will enhance their profile to obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence from the Government of Canada.
