Saskatchewan invited 576 immigration candidates for provincial nomination in new PNP draw on December 17

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 576 candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in its new immigration draw held on December 27.

Invitations were issued to candidates under the International Skilled Worker category through two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand.

Out of total invitations issued, 190 went to candidates having a profile in Express Entry System and 386 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 71 points on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid.

Invited candidates had work experience in one of 89 select 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.

It is also one of the easiest Provincial Nominee Programs to apply. 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.

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.
