Saskatchewan has conducted a new invitation round on September 8. The province has invited 528 potential candidates to fill the application form for a provincial nomination.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has issued invitations to candidates who took part through two immigration categories – Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry.
Of all the total invitations, 316 invitations went to the Express Entry candidates and the remaining 212 to the Occupations In-Demand candidates.
Candidates required an EOI score of at least 66 points for both sub-categories. People who had a score below the cut-off score were not eligible to receive invitations in this draw.
For both categories, there was a requirement of an Educational Credential Assessment. An ECA is a document that compares foreign education to that of Canadian education standards.
For In-demand occupations candidates, there was a list of 16 occupations. So, candidates who belonged to one of those eligible occupations received an invitation from the province.
Candidates invited through Express Entry
The SINP has an express entry-linked stream. Candidates in the express entry pool receive invitations under this stream.
They get 600 points extra added to their CRS scores if they successfully secure a nomination from the province of Saskatchewan.
Candidates invited through Occupations In-demand sub-category
Those candidates who do not have a profile in the express entry can apply under this category. Saskatchewan has issued 212 invitations to the occupations In-demand candidates. They required a score of 66 points in the Points Assessment Grid in order to receive an invitation.
