In the latest draw, Saskatchewan invited 205 immigration candidates for applying for being provincially nominated for Canadian permanent residence. The candidates that were invited had work experience in 71 in-demand occupations.
The draw was held by Saskatchewan on March 26 under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program [SINP]. Though no job offer was required for selection, 1 year of work experience was needed. The work experience should have been in an eligible occupation that was related to the candidate’s field of study.
Despite the coronavirus immigration measures in place since March 16, regular draws – both federal as well as provincial – continue to be held. Recently, despite COVID-19, Manitoba, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan have all held draws under their Provincial Nominee Programs [PNPs].
The federal Express Entry draw held on March 18 was specifically targeted at those candidates that already had a provincial nomination.
Saskatchewan’s draw under the category of Occupations-in-Demand invited candidates that had an Educational Credential Assessment. Additionally, they were also required to have either studied at a post-secondary institution in Saskatchewan or had a close family member in the province.
The International Skilled Worker Category of the SINP enables the province to nominate those overseas-born skilled workers that have the education, experience, as well as the language abilities for successfully establishing themselves in Saskatchewan.
The 71 occupations selected in this round included corporate sales managers, medical laboratory technologists, and college instructors. Candidates selected in March 26 SINP draw also had to have earlier submitted an Expression of Interest [EOI] profile to the SINP.
Those who create an EOI profile with the SINP are assessed on various factors and allotted an EOI score. The minimum EOI score required in March 26 draw was 75.
With this March 26 draw under SINP, Saskatchewan has invited 1,124 Occupations In-Demand candidates so far in 2020. If the 845 invited through SINP’s Express Entry are also considered, Saskatchewan has invited a total of 1,969 so far in 2020.
