Saskatchewan invites 570 PNP candidates

Invited candidates had work experience in one of 50 occupations.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has held a new draw inviting 570 immigration candidates on August 26. All the invited candidates were from the Occupations In-Demand subcategory of the International Skilled Worker category.

Invited Candidates had Educational Credential Assessments. They also needed to meet any of the following three criteria:

     · An Expression of Interest (EOI) score of 69 points or higher;

     · An EOI score of 68 points and having connections to Saskatchewan; and

     · An EOI score of 68 points and having 10 years of work experience and a language level of CLB 8 or higher.

The invited candidates had work experience in any of the 50 eligible occupations having the following NOC codes:

0013, 0111, 0112, 0121, 0131, 0132, 0421, 0423, 0711, 0714, 0821, 0822, 0912, 1114, 1121, 1214, 1215, 1221, 1225, 1241, 1313, 2143, 2144, 2148, 2222, 2234, 2242, 2263, 2264, 3143, 3211, 3212, 3215, 3219, 3234, 4151, 4152, 4153, 4165, 4212, 7246, 7301, 7312, 7315, 7321, 7322, 9212, 9213, 9232, 9241

All in-demand occupations that are eligible under the SINP's Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories are rated Skill Level O, A or B under Canada's National Occupational Classification, or NOC.


 Occupations In-Demand subcategory

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and is open to immigration candidates who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.

This sub-category invites highly skilled workers who have experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan, but do not yet have a job offer in the province.

In order to apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category, foreign nationals need to create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system.

Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their capacity to settle into life in Saskatchewan.

They are then given a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.

The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.


Saskatchewan provincial nominee programs

The SINP has invited 3,256 immigration candidates to apply for a nomination so far this year. These candidates were invited through the Occupations In-Demand subcategory and Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category.

The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal Express Entry system.

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates 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 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 score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
