After British Columbia, Saskatchewan has also conducted its first draw of 2021. The province has issued 385 invitations under the Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry immigration streams of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
Saskatchewan held the draw on 7th January. Individuals who have received invitations can apply for Saskatchewan’s provincial nomination and with that nomination, they can further apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Invited candidates had work experience in some of the selected occupations of the province. Out of the 385 invitations, 148 went to the Express Entry category, and the rest 237 to the Occupations In-Demand category.
In both the categories, invited candidates required a provincial score of 71 points. This score is different from the Comprehensive Ranking System score and it is managed by Saskatchewan’s ISW Points Assessment Grid.
The province of Saskatchewan has a list in which 79 occupations are included. So, candidates having work experience in one of these occupations have received invitations by Saskatchewan in this draw. Interested candidates can visit the province’s official webpage and have a look at the list of the included occupations.
If you are looking for a province where you can find a good balance of both city and country life, the province of Saskatchewan is a perfect choice. Also, Saskatchewan has a considerably low unemployment rate. So, it is easier for new immigrants to get a job in the province.
