The latest draw of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program held on 9th January issued 309 invitations. This is the first draw of 2020 for the SINP.
Candidates invited in this draw did not need to have a job offer from Saskatchewan.
Invited candidates, however, had to submit an EOI to the SINP. They also had to have at least a year of relevant work experience in a skilled occupation related to their education.
Eligible EOIs are scored on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid of the SINP. The score determines the rank of a candidate in the SINP Pool. Highest-scoring candidates are invited in regular draws conducted by the SINP.
The 9th January draw invited candidates in both the Occupations In-demand and Express Entry streams. The minimum cut-off score in both the streams was 69 points.
The SINP Express Entry sub-category invited 142 candidates from the Express Entry Pool to apply for a provincial nomination. Candidates who are successful in getting a provincial nomination would be able to add 600 extra points to their CRS scores.
Candidates who do not have a valid profile in the Federal Express Entry Pool can apply under the Occupations In-demand sub-category.
166 invitations were issued in the Occupations In-demand sub-category in the 9th January draw.
The SINP does not use an In-demand Occupations List any more. Instead, it now uses an Excluded Occupations List. This provides for greater flexibility in responding to the ever-changing needs of the labour market of Saskatchewan.
Candidates in 82 occupations were invited in the 9th January draw. Some of these in-demand occupations included:
