On July 24, Immigration authorities of Saskatchewan, conducted provincial draws, for Express Entry and also for the candidates belonging to the Occupation In-Demand category. The previous draw was held on June 20.
THE DRAW DETAILS
277 invitations were issued to candidates who had the Expression of Interest profile in the provincial Occupation In-Demand sub-category, and 104 invitations were issued to candidates who had the EOI profile in the Express Entry category.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program adopts the point basis for assessing the eligibility of all skilled workers for these categories. Candidates have to score minimum 60 points for work experience, education, and language to meet the eligibility norms. They must also possess work experience in any of 19 mentioned occupations as per the list of top demand jobs in Saskatchewan. The Express Entry sub-category of SINP has a link with the federal Express Entry that is the main pathway of permanent residence in Canada for skilled overseas workers.
THE NORMS OF NOMINATIONS
The consideration for Saskatchewan nomination for the Express Entry candidates depends on registering a separate EOI profile with the Program. This carries the details of work experience, language proficiency and education of a candidate. Additionally these candidates get a score from 100 points depending on the provided information.
The score in the International Skilled Worker class of the SINP is different from the CRS score which determines the position of a candidate in the Express Entry pool.
All the Express Entry candidates receiving the provincial nomination also get 600 additional points in their CRS score and get a guarantee of receiving the invitation to apply towards permanent residence in Canada.
The Occupation In-Demand category functions outside the system of Express Entry and has the aim of bringing global skilled workers working in such industries that face labor shortage in the province. These candidates must register an EOI with the SINP.
The top ranking candidates in Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand pools receive invitations to apply in the Saskatchewan provincial nomination through several draws.
The cut-off scores in this draw for both categories increased by six points in comparison to the previous draw held on June 20, and reached 74 points.
In 2019, the Program has issued 1,004 invitations in favor of Express Entry candidates and 1,473 in favor of Occupation In-Demand candidates.
