Saskatchewan invites 496 Candidates with CRS 71 – 23rd Aug 2021

Saskatchewan held a new immigration draw on August 19th.   The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited a grand total of 496 candidates through two immigration programs. Of those invited, 161 may be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 335 through the Occupations In-Demand sub-category

There was a small difference in the Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement for each category of applicants. Candidates invited to apply for the Express Entry subcategory needed a score of at least 71. Occupations in Demand candidates had a slightly smaller cut off score at 70. There were 43 eligible occupations in the draw for Express Entry candidates, and 61 for Occupations in Demand candidates.

Occupations In-Demand subcategory

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), meaning it is open to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile.

This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan, who do not yet have a job offer in the province.

In order to apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category, foreign nationals need to create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system.

Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their ability to settle in Saskatchewan. They are then given a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal Express Entry system.

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs:

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Candidates with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.

Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
