Major draw held by Saskatchewan issued 769 invitations to Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand Candidates
SINP conducts the first Draw since it Expanded Occupation In-Demand List
The Canadian province of Saskatchewan announced details of its latest Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) draw conducted on September 25th, 2019.
A total of 769 candidates who have applied for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence through SINP’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand subcategories received invitations in September 25th draw.
This draw comes only one week after Saskatchewan significantly updated its Occupation In-Demand list. The updated list now includes a total of 218 high skilled occupations at NOC level A, B, or 0.
A total of 404 invitations went to Express Entry candidates while the rest 365 invitations were issued to candidates through SINP’s Occupations In-Demand sub-category.
In this Latest SINP Draw, the minimum score attained by a candidate in Express Entry subcategory was 70 and 79 under the Occupation In-Demand category.
As per the SINP report, the invited candidates represent 100 occupations, which included Civil and chemical engineers, psychologists, medical radiation technologists, and information systems analysts and consultants.
Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories are two prominent streams within the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) for individuals who have education and work experience in a high-skilled and in-demand occupation.
In order to be considered under Saskatchewan’s Express Entry sub-category, the first step is to submit a profile into the federal Express Entry pool. However, to apply through Saskatchewan’s Occupation In-Demand Sub-Category, candidates need to first create a profile in Saskatchewan’s EOI system.
While a minimum of at least one year of full-time work experience is essential for both of these sub-categories, a job offer or work experience in Canada is not required to be eligible, making it a great pathway to obtain Canadian permanent residency for highly skilled foreign workers!
Express Entry candidates, who receive a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, get an additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, which effectively increase their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
With the new additional occupations included to Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Workers category, more skilled candidates are now eligible to apply to the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand streams.
Candidates, who received invitations in September 25th draw, now have 60 days to submit their complete application to Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
