Saskatchewan invited 259 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on May 6.

The invitations went to candidates who may be eligible for a nomination from the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), specifically from the International Skilled Worker category. Of those invited, 136 may be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry subcategory, and 123 may be nominated through the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.

The two new draws resulted in fewer invitations than the previous selection round through Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker Expression of Interest (EOI) system. The province uses an EOI system to manage the pool of candidates for the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.

Regardless of the stream, invited candidates needed an EOI score of at least 70 in order to be invited. They also needed Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard and work experience in one of the 63 in-demand occupations listed on the government webpage.


About the Occupations In-Demand subcategory

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a base Provincial Nominee Program (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.

They are then given a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
