A new Saskatchewan PNP draw invited Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand candidates
In the latest draw of Saskatchewan, 534 invitations for Express Entry and Occupations-in-demand candidates
The SINP- Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program invited 534 applicants from the International Skilled Worker category through- Express Entry Program and Occupations-in-demand.
Applicants are to submit an Expression of Interest- EOI from both the subcategories and are required to score 68 points and fulfil the eligibility requirements.
Express Entry`s 272 applicants are to qualify for the 68 points cut-off score only if they have 10 years of work experience, a language proficiency of CLB 8, or higher. Express Entry has 47 applicants in its draw in the category for occupations.
Occupations-in-demand invited 262 applicants with ECA- Educational Credential Assessment needed. A total of 55 occupations were included in the category.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program uses EOI as a tool to select potential and skilled applicants who have the intention to settle in the province and build a life. The applicants are to show their work experience, language ability, age, or connections to the province.
The SINP assessment grid uses five factors and gives them a score out of 100 in the International Skilled Worker. Applicants scoring the highest ranks are issue an invitation to apply for the provincial nomination.
Express Entry sub-category
An applicant who has a valid profile in the Express Entry is issued a provincial nomination by Saskatchewan. In the latest draw, Saskatchewan issues 272 invitations to candidates having an Express Entry profile.
The Federal Express Entry System manages three main economic immigration programs- Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades System, Canadian Experience Class.
If the applicants have filled out the EOI for the SINP, then they can be invited to the next draw of the provincial nomination
Applicants of Express Entry who receive a provincial nomination receive a 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score. The scores awarded to ensure that the applicant will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. If the Express Entry candidates score 470, they are invited to the next draw.
The same process goes for Provincial Nominee Program – PNP.
