Saskatchewan invites Express Entry, Occupation In-Demand candidates with explicit work experience
Event planners and Conference has been removed from In-Demand Occupations List following May 1 draw
Saskatchewan invited 202 experienced candidates in seven occupations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian PR on May 1.
The draws through the province’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand Immigration sub-categories targeted experienced candidates in the below occupations.
Managers in social, community and correctional services
Conference and event planners
Instructors of persons with disabilities
Work experience in an occupation on the list is among the eligibility requirements for both the SINP’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
A job offer, however, is not required
The Express Entry sub-category is linked to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
In order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination through either the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-category, candidates must first create and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile to the SINP.
Profiles gets a score based on aspects such as education level, work experience, age, language ability and family, work or study connections to Saskatchewan.
The highest-scoring profiles are drawn from the pool of eligible EOI candidates through regular draws and invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian PR.
The lowest-scoring Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates invited in the May1 draw was 67.
Express Entry candidates who are approved for a provincial nomination will get an additional 600 points for their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian PR in a subsequent Express Entry Draw.
