Saskatchewan Immigration Issues 255 ITAs in latest PNP draw
This week Saskatchewan immigration conducted a new draw issuing 255 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination.
Occupations In-Demand candidates
Of those Occupations In-Demand candidates invited, 152 may be eligible for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), with a minimum score of 82 points.
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is open to workers in Saskatchewan, who do not have a job offer in Saskatchewan but are highly skilled in an in-demand occupation.
Express Entry candidates
A further 103 invitations went to Express Entry candidates with skills and experience in the same NOC codes, also with a minimum score of 82 points. According to the Saskatchewan website this sub-category is for skilled workers who:
• Want to live and work in Saskatchewan.
• Are in the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Express Entry Pool.
• Meet the sub-category criteria.
Candidates for both of these categories must have submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. In addition, candidates needed an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) to prove that the foreign credential is equivalent to a Canadian one.
How does it work?
Saskatchewan’s EOI system selects the candidates that would likely be the most successful in the province’s labour market.
Candidates with EOI profiles are assessed based on candidates work experience, education, connections, language ability, and age. Connections to the province can include having a job offer, or having a relative living in Saskatchewan.
Then, Candidates are given a point score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest scoring candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
