Saskatchewan Invites 986 Immigration Candidates in Its Largest-Ever Express Entry Draw on October 17
The Canadian province of Saskatchewan invites a total of 986 Express Entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in it’s largest-ever Expression of Interest (EOI) draw held on October 17.
The invited Express Entry candidates fall under specific work experience categories and had their profile registered under Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
In this latest draw, the minimum score requirement for all the Express Entry candidates invited was 67 under the EOI points grid of SINP.
The SINP allows the province to nominate eligible foreign workers for permanent residence in Canada through a number of immigration categories tailored to the different needs of its economic and labor market.
The Express Entry stream of SINP is linked to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Class.
In order to be eligible for a nomination from the SINP, Express Entry candidates do not need to have a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer, which makes it one of the best provincial nominee programs to apply.
However, candidates are required to have work experience in an eligible occupation that is aligned with their field of study, among other requirements.
The October 17 invitation round issued invitations to Express Entry candidates with work experience in the following 12 occupations:
- Retail and wholesale trade managers (NOC 0621)
- Restaurant and food service managers (NOC 0631)
- Construction managers (NOC 0711)
- Managers in agriculture (NOC 0821)
- Other financial officers (NOC 1114)
- Accounting technicians and bookkeepers (NOC 1311)
- Information systems analysts and consultants (NOC 2171)
- Social and community service workers (NOC 4212)
- Early childhood educators and assistants (NOC 4214)
- Technical sales specialists – wholesale trade (NOC 6221)
- Heavy-duty equipment mechanics (NOC 7312)
- Automotive service technicians, truck and bus mechanics and mechanical repairers (NOC 7321)
Express Entry candidates, who receive a nomination through the SINP, get additional 600 points toward their CRS scores that effectively increase their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
The candidates, who received invitations in October 17 draw, now have 60 days to submit their complete applications to SINP.
