In the latest draw held on September 24, 2020, the province of Saskatchewan has invited 535 immigration candidates with work experience in any of the 81 in-demand occupations.
Those invited can now apply to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program [SINP] for a provincial nomination.
If successful in securing a provincial nomination, the candidate can then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] for Canada permanent residence.
In the latest SINP draw, invitations were sent out to candidates under the categories of Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand.
In order to be considered for selection by the SINP, a candidate is required to submit their Expression of Interest [EOI] profile with the SINP. It is through the EOI system that Saskatchewan selects candidates with the most potential of thriving in the province.
After a candidate has created their EOI profile with the SINP, a score – referred to as the EOI score – is allotted based on 5 factors of age, education, work experience, language ability, and connections to Saskatchewan.
A score, out of 100, is allotted to EOI profiles under the SINP as per the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
It is the highest-ranking profiles, as per their EOI score, that are issued invitations to apply for a nomination in the SINP draws held.
In the latest draw, the minimum EOI score required was 82 for both the sub-categories.
