New PNP Draw: Nearly 496 potential candidates invited by Saskatchewan

PNP Applicants invited under the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand subcategories

On August 19, Saskatchewan held a fresh immigration draw. Through two immigration processes, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) welcomed a total of 496 individuals. Out of the total number of required candidates, 161 may qualify for the SINP's Express Entry sub category, while 335 may qualify for the Occupations In-Demand subcategory.

The Expression of Interest (EOI) score required differed somewhat for each group of candidates. Candidates selected to apply for the Express Entry sub category had to have a minimum score of 71. Candidates for Occupations in Demand received a significantly lower cutoff score of 70.

There were various acceptable jobs for each category in this draw. In the draw, there were a total of 43 qualifying occupations for Express Entry candidates and nearly 61 for Occupations in Demand candidates. The complete list of qualifying jobs is available on the government website. Both groups required Educational Credential Assessments to verify that their foreign education was equivalent to the Canadian level.

The Express Entry sub category is a subset of PNP which is integrated into the federal Express Entry system. The applicant pool for Canada’s three highly skilled or primary economic immigration programs i.e. the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) are all managed with the help of Express Entry program. To be eligible for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination, candidates with Express Entry profiles must additionally construct EOI profiles for Saskatchewan.

Express Entry applicants who obtain a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan gain 600 points added to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This gain in points practically allows them to seek permanent residency in Canada.

The Occupations In-Demand subcategory is a form of basic PNP, therefore it is open to immigrants who do not have an Express Entry profile. This sub-category includes highly trained workers who have competence in a high-demand occupation in Saskatchewan but have yet to get a job offer from the government. Foreign candidates must construct an EOI profile using the SINP's online application system to apply for Canadian immigration under this subcategory.

Saskatchewan's EOI system allows the state to choose immigration candidates who have the potential to flourish in the prairie province. The ability of candidates to settle in Saskatchewan will be assessed based on their employment experience, education, language competence, age, and links to the province.
