Saskatchewan invites 308 candidates in latest Express Entry, Occupations In-Demand draw
Saskatchewan invited 308 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in its latest draw on 9 January.
This is the first draw of the year for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program. Invitations for candidates in both express entry and occupations went in streams of demand.
Candidates did not need a job offer to be invited for a provincial nomination in this draw. However, they did need to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the SINP. They also needed one year of work experience in an eligible skilled occupation related to their field of study.
Once EOI profiles are submitted, the SINP assesses them on factors such as age, skilled work experience, education, language ability, and connections to Saskatchewan. They are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
The score determines the candidate’s ranking in the EOI pool and the highest-scoring candidates are issued invitations to apply through regular draws.
In both categories, candidates needed a minimum score of 69 in order to be invited in the latest SINP selection round.
Express Entry sub-category
The SINP issued 142 invitations to candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category is tied to the Federal Express Entry System, which manages a pool of candidates for Canada’s three main economic-class immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Canadian Experience.
Express Entry candidates who receive and receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded 600 additional points towards a comprehensive ranking system Score at the federal level,
Occupations In-demand sub-category
The in-demand sub-category is open to immigration candidates who do not have a federal express entry profile.
There were 166 Occupations In-Demand candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry sub-category, candidates needed a provincial score of 69 in order to be chosen.
The SINP uses an Excluded Occupations List rather than a list of in-demand occupations. This is to allow for more flexibility in responding to the changing demands of the province’s labor market.
9 January draw issued invitation to candidates in 82 businesses. Some of these in-demand occupations include managers in agriculture, administrative officers, and electronic service technicians for household and business equipment.
