In the Saskatchewan PNP draw held on July 8, a total of 295 immigration candidates received invitations to apply for provincial nomination. All the invited candidates belong to the International Skilled Worker category of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program(SINP). While 99 of the invited candidates received their invitations through the Express Entry subcategory, the remaining 196 candidates were invited through the Occupations In Demand sub-category under the International Skilled Worker category.
All the invited candidates were required to have work experience in one of the 62 in-demand occupations. The minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score of the invited candidates was 80.
SINP Occupations In-Demand subcategory
The candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile may apply for provincial nomination from Saskatchewan through Occupations In Demand sub category. Highly skilled foreign workers with work experience in one of the 62 in-demand occupations of Saskatchewan but do not have a job offer from the province can apply under this subcategory. In order to receive an invitation under the Occupations In Demand sub category, the candidate must first submit an Expression of Interest through SINP’s online application system. Each of the Expression of Interest profiles submitted in this manner will be assessed on the basis of various eligibility factors such as language ability, age, education, work experience and previous connections to the province. Based on this, each candidate will be awarded a score out of 100. Those with the highest scores will be invited to apply for provincial nomination.
SINP Express Entry subcategory
The Express Entry subcategory of SINP is aligned to the federal Express Entry system. Only those with an Express Entry profile will be considered under this subcategory. If the Express Entry candidates invited in the draw successfully apply for and receive a provincial nomination, they will get additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System score points. This will guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
