Saskatchewan province issues invitations to 205 candidates to apply to immigration through a provincial nomination
Saskatchewan conducted a new draw and invited 205 new immigration applicants for a provincial nomination to get Canada PR.
SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) granted invitations on 26 March 2020. A job offer was not mandatory to get the nomination, but they needed work experience of 1 year in their field of expertise.
Manitoba, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan provinces held PNP draws after the country announced special measures due to the onslaught of Coronavirus on March 16. These draws are held in addition to the Federal Express Entry Draw held on 18 March, which only selected provincial nominees.
Under the Occupations In-Demand sub-category, the Saskatchewan draw invited candidates with Educational Credit Assessment, family ties in the province, or who have studied their post-secondary degree from an educational institute from the province.
How are the candidates selected in the Saskatchewan draw?
The 71 occupations from which the candidates are selected include college instructors, lab technicians, and sales managers in the corporate sector.
The candidates needed to file an EOI (Expression of Interest) profile to the SINP.
The EOI system of the province enables the province to choose candidates who have the potential to sustain and shine in the province. The candidates who are interested in getting the nomination must file an EOI with all the details about their education, work experience, linguistic abilities, age, and adaptability in the province.
Based on all these details, the candidates are evaluated out of 100 points in the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid of the SINP.
After giving the score, the highest scoring candidates are issued ITA (Invitation to Apply) for a provincial nomination for Canada PR.
In the latest draw, held on 26 March, the minimum score required was 75.
SINP (Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program)
So far this year, the SINP invited 1124 Occupations In-Demand candidates to the province. If we add the 845 candidates, who are invited to apply for a nomination through the Saskatchewan Express Entry category, the total will go up to 1969.
The province’s Express Entry category is linked with the Express Entry system, which manages the eligible candidates’ pool for the three major economic-class immigration programs of Canada, Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates, who have Express Entry profiles should also create EOI profiles for Saskatchewan to be considered to get ITA for a provincial nomination.
The candidates in the Express Entry pool, if they receive a Provincial Nomination, will gain an additional 600 points in their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This will mostly ensure their chances of getting Canada PR through Express Entry.
