Eligible candidates invited to apply under the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories
Saskatchewan sent out the second round of invitations on 8th September, 2021, inviting 528 individuals to apply under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Almost 316 individuals are qualified for the SINP's Express Entry sub-category, while 212 people are eligible for the Occupations In-Demand subcategory.
According to Saskatchewan's Expression of Interest (EOI) ranking system, the lowest-scoring applicant in each sub-category received 66 points. There were 16 jobs available for each category in this draw. On Saskatchewan's government website, you can find a complete list of qualifying jobs. Educational Credential Assessments were also required for both groups to show that their foreign education was similar to the Canadian level.
The Express Entry sub-category in Saskatchewan
The improved Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) under the Express Entry sub-category is linked to the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry is in charge of the applicant pool for three of Canada's most popular economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates with Express Entry profiles and who want to apply for a provincial nomination, must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan to fulfil their eligibility criteria. Express Entry applicants who earn a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan are given an extra 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System. This prize effectively ensures that they will be able to seek permanent residency in Canada.
About the In-Demand Occupations subcategory
Occupations In-Demand subcategory allows immigrants to apply without an express entry profile. This subcategory is for highly trained individuals who have competence in a Saskatchewan-demanded vocation but have yet to be given a position in the province. Foreign nationals who want to apply for Canadian immigration under this subcategory, must prepare their EOI profile with the help of SINP's online application system.
Saskatchewan's EOI system allows the state to choose immigrants who have the potential to flourish in the prairie province. Candidates will be judged on their capacity to settle in Saskatchewan based on their job experience, education, language skills, age, and ties to the province.
