Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) latest draw invites 255 skilled immigrants for provincial nomination to apply for Canada PR Visa.
Invitations have been extended to applicants who may be eligible for nomination from the Saskatchewan PNP, specifically the International Skilled Worker category. Of those invited, 103 may be eligible for the SINP Express Entry subcategory and 152 for the In-Demand Occupations subcategory.
The two new draws resulted in a comparable number of invitations to previous selection rounds through the Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) system. In recent months, Saskatchewan has issued more than 250 invitations on average every two weeks.
Regardless of the stream, invited applicants had to achieve an EOI score of at least 82 to be invited. They also needed a credential assessment to demonstrate that their training abroad was comparable to the Canadian standard and that they had work experience in one of the 55 in-demand occupations listed on the government webpage.
How to apply for Saskatchewan PNP through the Express Entry program?
The Express Entry subcategory is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal Express Entry system.
Express Entry manages the applicant pool for three of Canada's major Economic Class immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
Applicants with Express Entry profiles must also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan in order to be considered for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.
Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their Federal Comprehensive Ranking System score and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
