The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited a total of 85 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on March 8.
Compared to draws from other years, Saskatchewan’s draws have all been smaller this year. So far in 2022, Saskatchewan has invited a total of 225 candidates to apply, compared to 1,975 candidates invited by March 11, 2021.
“EOI draws invite persons with experience and education in in-demand occupations who do not have employment offers,” a media spokesperson from the Saskatchewan government wrote in an email to CIC News.
“The SINP prioritizes applications from persons with employment offers from Saskatchewan employers to address urgent labour shortages. As we have received a higher number of applications from persons with employment offers in recent months, the EOI draws have been adjusted to reflect that.”
In the March 8 invitation round, 39 invitations went to Express Entry candidates and 43 invitations went to Occupations In Demand candidates. The minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement was 87 for both categories of candidates, and they needed to have work experience in one of 31 occupations.
In response to the crisis in Ukraine, Saskatchewan also issued three invitations to Express Entry candidates who are living in Ukraine. Saskatchewan had also done this on March 4, inviting 36 Ukrainians to apply for a provincial nomination.
