Saskatchewan issues 610 invitations

The latest Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) draw on October 2 invited 610 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. 
It was the second major draw after the significant expansion of eligible occupations under Saskatchewan’s popular Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories. Prior to this, a total of 769 eligible candidates were issued invitations through these two sub-categories on September 25. 
The two successive SINP draws conducted in a week’s time resulted in a total of 1379 invitations to eligible candidates. It only indicates the fact that the province is openly welcoming overseas immigrants. 
All the nominated candidates represented one among 77 different occupations eligible under the SINP. Some of the most popular occupations among these included engineers, human resource professionals, computer network technicians, legal assistants, educational counsellors, natural and applied science researchers.  
Express Entry candidates registered in the federal Express Entry are required to register their Expression of Interest (EOI) separately with the SINP in order to be considered for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan. Under the SINP’s EOI system, eligible candidates are awarded scores based on their connection to Saskatchewan, education, work experience, language proficiency in English or French. Those with EOI scores above threshold are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws. 
The minimum EOI scores in these draws were 68 for both the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories. It is also be noted that October 2 draw’s EOI score is lower than that of the last week’s draw, which had a minimum score of 79 for Occupations In-Demand candidates and 70 for Express Entry candidates.
Take this free immigration assessment to find if you are eligible for any Canadian immigration programs. 
The category-wise breakup of invitations includes 214 invitations to Occupation In-Demand candidates and 396 invitations to candidates under the Express Entry sub-category that is linked to federal Express Entry system. An additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score are awarded to Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination, thereby guaranteeing them an invitation to apply for Canada PR visa.
The popularity of SINP is majorly due to its no job offer in Saskatchewan and Canadian work experience eligibility criteria. However, one of the mandatory requirements is that the eligible candidates need to have one year of work experience in an eligible occupation related to their field of study in order to be considered for a provincial nomination through either sub-category. 
The October 2 and September 25 draws were among the largest held by Saskatchewan since it switched its Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system in July 2018.
Canada Provincial Nominee Program offers an unparalleled choice of immigration and has been considered as the best alternative to federal Express Entry program for overseas skilled migration. The participating provinces offer unlimited work, study, business opportunities and flexible immigration options to migrate along with your family.
