Saskatchewan invites Express Entry candidates in latest EOI draw

CIC News
Published: February 27, 2019

Saskatchewan has invited 83 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in a draw held February 27.  

Those invited had an Expression of Interest, or EOI, registered under Saskatchewan's International Skilled Worker Express Entry sub-category, which allows the province to nominate candidates in the federal Express Entry system for Canadian permanent residence.

The Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for three of Canada's main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry ranking score and are effectively fast-tracked for an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

In order to be considered for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, Express Entry candidates must register a separate EOI with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

An EOI profile requires information on education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to the province, such as a close family member or past work or study experience in Saskatchewan, among other factors.

Express Entry candidates must have work experience in a high-skilled occupation found on Saskatchewan’s In-Demand Occupations List, among other eligibility criteria.

Profiles are awarded a score and those with 60 points or more are entered into the pool of candidates.

A set number of the highest-ranked are then issued invitations through regular draws.

The lowest-ranked candidate invited to apply for a provincial nomination in the February 27 draw had a score of 68.
