The new Saskatchewan Expression of Interest draw was conducted on March 6 inviting 138 applicants to apply Canada Permanent Resident Visa under Express Entry and Occupation In-demand categories. Out of 138 EOIs, 70 invitations were given through Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category having an EOI score of 67 and above. The other 68 invitations were issued through Occupation In-demand sub-category with EOI score of 81 and above.
Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category allows the province to nominate skilled and qualified workers with a profile in the Federal Express Entry System. The other category of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), Occupation In-Demand category is not linked to the Express Entry System.
The Express Entry System manages the pool of candidates under Canada’s three Federal High Skilled economic immigration categories namely the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trade Worker Program and Canadian Experience Class.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through Saskatchewan’s Express Entry or Occupation In-Demand sub-category, the basic step is to register an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
The successful applicants with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their overall Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.
This current draw came less than two weeks after the SINP conducted the Express Entry focused draw on February 27 that issued 83 invitations. A total of 515 invitations through Express Entry sub-category and 303 invitations through its Occupations In-Demand Sub-category have been issued by the Saskatchewan province under Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
