In the just-concluded Saskatchewan draws, through the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration sub-categories, a total of 150 invitations were issued and the score point witnessed a 4points increase from the last draw. With the use of a unique Expression of Interest (EOI) points grid, The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) successfully ranks candidates in its Saskatchewan Express Entry and Occupation-In-Demand sub-categories.
The break down for Saskatchewan’s August 15 provincial nomination draws are as follows:
- 45 via Express Entry
- 105 via Occupations In-Demand
Candidates had to have a minimum of 78 in the Saskatchewan Expression of Interest score.
Candidates receive a score out of 100 based on factors including their education, skilled work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan. The highest-scoring candidates in both sub-categories are then invited through regular draws from the pool.
The Express Entry Sub Category
The Saskatchewan Express Entry stream is linked to the federal Express Entry Pool. Candidates who are already in the Express Entry pool and who meet the requirements to succeed in Saskatchewan may be selected for a provincial nomination.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking score. Given that most federal draws require CRS scores over 400, a provincial nomination practically guarantees an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
Candidates eligible for the Occupation in Demand sub-category who receive a provincial nomination have their applications for Canadian permanent residence processed outside the Express Entry system. Though a job offer is not required for this sub-category, a key eligibility requirement for both the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories is to have experience in one of the 19 occupations currently listed as in demand in Saskatchewan.
The SINP has issued 1,789 invitations through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category, and 1,315 through its Express Entry sub-category so far in 2019. The number of invitations issued in the August 15 draw (150) shows a marked decrease from the previous draw on July 24, which saw 381 invitations issued.
