Saskatchewan invites 496 immigrants to apply for PR under Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories

In a new PNP draw, Saskatchewan invited 496 potential immigrants. Under the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories, immigration candidates were invited to apply for a provincial nomination. Through two immigration programs, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited a total of 496 candidates. 161 people may be qualified for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, while 335 may be eligible for the Occupations In-Demand subcategory. The Expression of Interest (EOI) score precondition for each bracket of applicants differed slightly. Candidates with a score of at least 71 were invited to apply for the Express Entry subcategory.

Candidates for Professions in Demand had a slightly reduced cutoff score of 70. There were various eligible professions for each category in this draw. For Express Entry candidates, there were 43 eligible occupations in the draw and 61 for Occupations in Demand candidates. On the government’s website, the applicant can find a comprehensive list of eligible professions. Educational Credential Assessments were also required for both groups to show that their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard.

Saskatchewan Express Entry Program

The enhanced Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in the Express Entry sub-category is interconnected to the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry is in charge of the candidate pool for three of Canada’s most popular economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. In order to be accepted for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination, candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan. Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan are given an extra 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System.

Occupation In-Demand subcategory

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base PNP, which means it is available to immigrants without an Express Entry profile. This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in a Saskatchewan-demanded occupation who have not yet been offered a job in the province. The EOI system in Saskatchewan allows the province to choose immigrants who have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Applicants will be judged on their potential to settle in Saskatchewan based on their work experience, education, language skills, age, and ties to the province.
