Saskatchewan invited 551 Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates in new PNP draw


The new Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw invited over 500 immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency.

This latest Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) draw that took place on November 19, issued total 551 invitations to Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates who had work experience in certain occupations.

Out of total invitations issued, 214 went to candidates having a profile in Express Entry System. In order to be invited, these candidates were required to have an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 78, Educational Credential Assessments, and work experience in one of 56 occupations.

Another 337 invitations were issued to candidates with work experience in one of the 75 occupations under the Occupations In-Demand subcategory. EOI score of the lowest ranked candidate invited under this sub-category was 80.

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 to be eligible.

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.
