New draws through Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration sub-categories resulted in 541 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) issued the new invitations on February 11, 2021.
A total of 344 candidates were invited through the Express Entry sub-category, and the remaining 197 invitations were issued to Occupations In-Demand candidates.
The SINP allows Saskatchewan to nominate immigration candidates with skills required in the province’s labour market.
Invited candidates had Educational Credential Assessments. They also needed an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 72 under the SINP’s EOI points grid. This score is based on factors including age, education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan, among others.
