In the latest invitation round held on 24th July, Saskatchewan issued 381 invitations. 277 of these invites went to the Occupation In-demand category and 104 were issued to the Express Entry sub-stream.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a points-based system. To be eligible candidates must score at least 60 points on factors like education, work experience and language skills. Eligible candidates should also have work experience in any one of the 19 in-demand occupations of the province.
The SINP Express Entry sub-stream is linked with the Federal Express Entry Program. To be eligible, candidates must lodge a separate EOI with the SINP. The SINP EOI contains details of a candidate’s education, work experience, language skills etc. Based on these factors each EOI is awarded a score out of a total of 100 points.
The SINP International Skilled Worker Category has got a different scoring system as compared to the Express Entry’s CRS score.
The Saskatchewan Occupation In-demand sub-category is not linked to the Express Entry Program. It is aimed at attracting overseas skilled workers for industries facing a workforce shortage in the province.
To apply under the Occupation In-demand sub-category, you must lodge an EOI with the SINP.
Highest-scoring candidates are invited in regular draws for both the Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories.
The cut-off for the 24th July draw was 74 points. The cut-off increased by 6 points for both the categories as compared to the previous draw on 20th June where the cut-off was 68.
Till now in 2019, the SINP has issued 1,004 invitations to Express Entry candidates. 1,473 invitations have been issued in 2019 to candidates in the Occupations In-demand sub-category, as per CIC News.
