Saskatchewan conducted the latest draw on 15th August. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) issued 150 new invites to EE and Occupations In-demand candidates. 45 candidates were invited under the Saskatchewan Express Entry Stream while 105 invitations were issued under the Occupations In-demand category.
The minimum cut-off in the latest draw was 78 points.
The SINP uses a unique points grid to rank candidates in the Occupation In-demand and Express Entry sub-categories. Candidates get a score out of 100 based on factors like:
Highest scoring candidates in both the sub-categories are invited to apply for a provincial nomination in regular draws.
The SINP Express Entry stream is aligned with the Federal Express Entry Program. Candidates should be in the EE Pool and meet the requirements of this stream to qualify for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination.
The Occupations In-demand sub-category is not linked to the Express Entry Program. It is not mandatory to have a job offer from Saskatchewan to apply under this category. However, eligible candidates should have relevant work experience in any one of the 19 In-demand occupations of the province, as per CIC News.
So far in 2019, the SINP Occupations In-demand sub-category has invited 1,789 candidates for a provincial nomination. 1,315 candidates have been invited through the Express Entry sub-stream in 2019.
The number of invitations issued in the 15th August draw saw a decrease as compared to the previous draw. The previous draw conducted on 24th July has issued 381 invitations for a provincial nomination.
