Saskatchewan issued 138 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates in a selection round held March 6.

A total of 70 invitations were issued through Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category and another 68 were issued through the Occupation In-Demand sub-category.

Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category allows the province to nominate skilled worker candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

The Occupation In-Demand sub-category is not linked to the Express Entry system.

In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through Saskatchewan’s Express Entry or Occupation In-Demand sub-category, the first step is to register an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

Eligible candidates receive a score based on factors including their education, skilled work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan and are entered into the pool for their respective immigration sub-category.

Candidates for both the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories must have work experience in a high-skilled profession on Saskatchewan’s In-Demand Occupations List.

A set number of the highest-ranked profiles are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws from the pool of candidates for both sub-categories.

The lowest-ranked candidate invited through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category on March 6 had a score of 67 while the lowest-ranked candidate invited through the In-Demand Occupation sub-category had a score of 81.

The March 6 draw came less than two weeks after the SINP held an Express Entry-focused draw on February 27 that issued 83 invitations.

The SINP has now issued a total of 515 invitations through its Express Entry sub-category and 302 invitations through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category in 2019.
