The Canadian province of Saskatchewan conducted its first draw after revising the SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) occupation list in September 2019. The province has invited 769 Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates in the latest draw held on September 25, 2019. The invitation is for those aspirants who wish to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. The draw was amongst the largest draw held by Saskatchewan since it switched its EE and Occupation In-Demand categories to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system in July 2018.
The candidates invited in the latest SINP draw represented 100 occupations, which included civil and chemical engineers, psychologists, medical radiation technologists, information system analysts and consultants.
Overall, a total of 365 invitations have been issued to candidates in the SINP Occupation In-Demand category, whereas a total of 404 invitations were issued to the Express Entry Category, which is open to eligible candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.
The selected candidates with a provincial nomination receive additional 600 points towards their overall CRS (Comprehension Ranking System) score. Though a job offer is not required for this sub-category, to be eligible to be considered for a provincial nomination a candidate must have at least 1 year of work experience in an eligible occupation related to the candidate’s field of study.
The minimum scores in the September 25 draw were 70 for Express Entry candidates and 79 for Occupation IN-Demand candidates.
