Saskatchewan Invites Occupations InDemand Candidates
Saskatchewan held another Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand draw in the third week of November , inviting 525 skilled workers to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. A total of 303 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program SINP Express Entry sub-category is linked to the federal government’s Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Class
- Federal Skilled Trades Class and
- Canadian Experience Class
Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
For the immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile, the Occupation In-Demand sub-category is open. In this selection round, 222 Occupation In-Demand candidates were invited to apply for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence. The SINP’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories are popular because they do not require a job offer in Saskatchewan. The candidates should have one year of work experience in an eligible skilled occupation that is related to their field of study, among other criteria.
