Saskatchewan issued a total of 438 invitations to apply in the latest Expression of Interest system invitation round that took place on September 27, 2018.
A total of 225 invitations went out to candidates under the program’s Express Entry sub-category and the remaining 213 invitations were issued to candidates in the Occupations In-Demand sub-category in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
The Express Entry candidates cut off score was 65 points while the Occupations In-Demand candidates cut off score was at 66.
After receiving an invitation to apply through either of these sub-categories, candidates can submit a complete provincial nomination application to the Government of Saskatchewan.
With a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, express entry candidates gain 600 points additionally towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, out of 1,200 points, in the federal government’s Express Entry selection system, thus automatically placing them in the top of the candidates’ pool.
The SINP also invited candidates who did not have a profile in Canada’s Express Entry pool through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category.
After receiving a nomination, Occupation In-Demand candidates can apply directly to the Government of Canada for Canadian permanent residence.
Both of these popular sub-categories have similar eligibility requirements and do not require candidates to have a Canadian job offer in order to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI).
The Express Entry sub-category is only open to eligible candidates who have already submitted a federal Express Entry profile while the Occupations In-Demand category is open to eligible candidates who have not submitted an Express Entry profile.
Congratulations to our clients who received this coveted provincial nomination to apply for permanent residence.
