The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 502 immigration candidates for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency in a major selection round held on January 21, 2021.
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.
