Saskatchewan PNP draw invited 418 new immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 418 new immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency in its latest immigration draw held on March 24.

Out of total invitations issued, 183 went to Express Entry candidates and another 235 were issued to Occupations In-Demand candidates.

In order to be invited in this draw, candidates from both sub-categories needed an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 70 points on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid.

Stream Total Invitations issued Minimum EOI Score
Express Entry 183 70
Occupations In-Demand 235 70

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified immigration candidates with skills required in its labour market. Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories are two prominent streams within the SINP for individuals who have education and work experience in a high-skilled and in-demand occupation.

While a minimum of one year of full-time work experience is essential to apply for both of its subcategories, a job offer or work experience in Canada is not required.

In order to apply for a provincial nomination through either of these streams, candidates need to first register an EOI profile with the SINP.

Eligible EOIs are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid, which allot them points based on their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.

The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency through regular draws conducted by the SINP.

Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.

PEI invited 211 Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact candidates in its first PNP draw of 2021 on January 21

The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) held its first immigration draw of 2021 on January 21.

A total of 211 Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact candidates received invitations to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency from PEI in this selection round.

Out of total invites issued, 196 went to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates. However, the PEI PNP did not provide a breakdown of how many Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates were invited, nor the minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score required for each category.

The remaining 15 invitations were issued to Business Impact candidates under the Work Permit Stream. The invited Business Impact candidates had a minimum point threshold of 80.

PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is for candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

Express Entry candidates, who would like to be considered for a provincial nomination from the province, need to create a separate EOI profile with the PEI PNP.

These profiles are given a score on the basis of information provided in their EOI based on factors such as education, work experience and proficiency in English or French. The highest-ranked candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws.

Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination get an additional 600 point toward their overall Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which effectively guarantees them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

PEI PNP’s Labour Impact Category is not aligned with the Express Entry system and is designed for foreign nationals with a valid job offer in the province and support from a PEI employer.

Candidates in this category may fall under three possible streams: Skilled Worker (in PEI and outside Canada), Critical Worker and International Graduate.

PEI PNP’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream is for individuals interested in owning and operating a business on the island. This stream also operates on a points-based EOI system.

The invitations were issued to candidates from SINP’s International Skilled Worker category through two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand.

Out of total invitations issued, 189 went to candidates having a profile in Federal Express Entry System while another 313 invitations were secured by the immigration candidates through the Occupations In-Demand subcategory.

In order to receive an invite in this draw, these candidates were required to have an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 77 along with having work experience in one of 79 occupations.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified foreign workers who have the potential to thrive in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

While a minimum of one year of full-time work experience is essential to apply for both of its subcategories – Express Entry and Occupation in Demand, a job offer or work experience in Canada is not required to be eligible to apply under this program.

In order to apply for a provincial nomination through either of these streams, candidates need to first register an EOI with the SINP.

Eligible EOIs are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid, which allot them points based on their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province. High-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the SINP.

Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.

Saskatchewan has now issued around 900 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination so far this year.

British Columbia invited 195 immigration candidates in new PNP draw on January 19

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) invited 195 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency in new immigration draw held on January 19.

Candidates were invited under the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and Entry-Level & Semi-Skilled sub-categories of Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams.

BREAKDOWN OF SUB-CATEGORIES AND THE MINIMUM SCORES REQUIREMENTS

Stream Sub-Category Minimum Scores Requirements
Skills Immigration Skilled Worker 96
International Graduate 96
Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled 80
Express Entry BC Skilled Worker 106
International Graduate 103

The Express Entry BC (EEBC) Category allows BCPNP to search Federal Express Entry pool to find qualified international workers or graduates who have the qualifications, education and work experience to fill positions that are in high-demand in the province and invite them to apply for provincial nomination.

The Skills Immigration Category of BCPNP is designed for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand in British Columbia

In order to receive an invitation for provincial nomination through the EEBC, candidates need to be registered under both the federal Express Entry system and B.C.’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) whereas Skills Immigration candidates only have to be registered with the SIRS.

All invited candidates under the Skills Immigration and Express Entry categories had an indeterminate, full-time job offer with an employer in B.C.

Candidates invited under the EEBC: Skilled Worker and EEBC: International Graduate categories will automatically receive an additional 600 CRS points toward their comprehensive ranking system (CRS) scores, if their applications get approved by BCPNP.

This effectively guaranties them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Federal Express Entry Draw.

BC PNP has now invited total 448 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination so far in 2021.
