Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates were invited in the new Saskatchewan PNP draw.

Saskatchewan held a new round of invitations on September 27.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invited 391 candidates to apply for one of two immigration programs. Of those invited, 152 may be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 239 may be eligible for the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.

The lowest-scoring candidate from each sub-category had 71 points on Saskatchewan’s Expression of Interest (EOI) ranking system.

In this draw, there were 61 eligible occupations for each category. The full list of eligible occupations can be found on Saskatchewan’s government website.

Both groups also needed Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard.

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base PNP, meaning it is open to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile.

This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan, who do not yet have a job offer in the province.

In order to apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category, foreign nationals need to create an EOI profile through the SINP’s online application system.

Saskatchewan’s EOI system allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the prairie province. Candidates will be assessed on how their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province demonstrate their ability to settle in Saskatchewan.
