Saskatchewan has recently a round of invitations on September 8.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program(SNIP) called 528 new candidates to apply for one of the programs from the two immigration programs. 316 of those invited were, could be eligible for the SNIP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 212 could be eligible for the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.
The candidate with the minimum score from each of the categories had 66 points in Saskatchewan’s Expression of Interest ranking system.
In this draw, there were a total of 16 eligible professions for each category.
Both the categories need Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education is comparable with Canada’s standard.
About Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category
Applicants with Express Entry profiles must also build their EOI profiles for Saskatchewan to be granted an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination.
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are conferred an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score. This grant effectively guarantees a chance to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
About the Occupations In-Demand subcategory
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is the base of PNP, which means it is open to candidates who wish to immigrate to Canada but don’t have an Express Entry profile
This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan, but don’t have a job offer in the province.
To apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category, foreign citizens will need to create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system.
Saskatchewan’s EOI system permits the province to select candidates that have the potential to immigrate and grow in the province. Candidates are evaluated on their work experience, education, language ability, age, and ties to the province to demonstrate that they’re eligible to reside in Saskatchewan.
