Saskatchewan invited over 600 immigration candidates for provincial nomination in PNP Draw held September 15


The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) conducted another round of invitations on September 15, 2020 targeting IT professionals. 

Total 621 immigration candidates received invitations to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in this draw.

The invitations went to candidates under the International Skilled Worker category of SINP through its two subcategories: Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand.

Candidates with work experience in following 3 NOCs have been included in this draw:

  • NOC 2173 – Software Engineers and Designers
  • NOC 2174 – Computer Programmers and Interactive Media Developers
  • NOC 2175 – Web Designers and Developers

A total of 455 invitations went to candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool while the remaining 166 invites were issued to Occupations In-Demand candidates.

The minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score required in this draw was 68 points for both sub-categories.

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

It is also one of the easiest Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) 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 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. 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.
