Saskatchewan held a new round of invitations on November 3rd

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited candidates from the International skilled worker category through two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand. They sent out a total of 534 invitations to immigration candidates.In order to be invited during this draw, candidates from both sub-categories needed to possess submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles with the SINP. Both required candidates to have a minimum cut-off score of 68, but from there the requirements differed.

The 272 invited Express Entry candidates could only qualify for an invitation with 68 points if that they had 10 years of work experience and a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 8 or higher. Otherwise they would need an EOI score of 69 or more. There were 47 occupations included within the draw under the Express Entry subcategory.

The 262 candidates invited under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory all needed Educational Credential Assessments. A total of 55 occupations were included in this draw.

The SINP uses the EOI system to select the candidates that have the most potential to succeed in the regional labour market. Candidates got to demonstrate their commitment to putting together a life in Saskatchewan by showcasing their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.
If candidates within the federal Express Entry pool also filled out an EOI for Saskatchewan, and that they scored 68 on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they’ll are invited in the latest draw.

Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This award effectively guarantees that they’re going to be invited to use for permanent residence during a subsequent federal Express Entry draw, as most invitation rounds invite candidates with scores above 470.

The same goes for anybody of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs that are aligned with Express Entry.
