Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) held the latest rounds of invitations on April 8, inviting 279 immigrants to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa.
Candidates were invited through SINP's International Skilled Worker subcategories - Express Entry and Occupation In-demand. 146 invited immigrants were from Express entry and the remaining 133 were invited from Occupation in-demand.
For candidates to be eligible for an invitation irrespective of the sub-categories, they need to score a minimum of 70 points in the SINP points assessment grid. Also, they must have work experience in any one of 59 in-demand occupations in the province.
