Saskatchewan’s new draw targets candidates of Express Entry & Occupation In-Demand
On June 20, 2019, the Canadian province Saskatchewan released its new draw for its International Skilled Worker category in which it issued a total of 479 invitations to immigration candidates. Of the total, 268 invitations went to candidates registered in Express entry pool and the remaining 211 invitations went to Occupation In-Demand sub-category candidates. After the draw, the total number of invitations for Express entry candidates has reached to 1,166 and 1,407 for Occupation In-Demand candidates so far in this year, 2019.
The International Skilled Worker category is one of the most popular immigration streams of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to nominate skilled, foreign workers in the province as permanent residents. It further gets segregated into three different pathways including,
- Saskatchewan Express entry
- Saskatchewan Employment offer
- Saskatchewan in-demand occupation
In the draw, each selected candidate from Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories must have work experience in one of five targeted occupations in the province including,
- Accounting technicians
- Architectural technologists and technicians
- Paramedical occupations
- Medical laboratory technologists
So if you want to consider your profile for a provincial nomination through either sub-category of SINP, then you need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) with Saskatchewan. It requires information on education, work experience, proficiency in English or French, among other factors to score your profile out of 100 in the point-assessment table. Only the highest-scoring candidates receive invitations to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws.
In addition to this, Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination must have a profile in Express entry pool. Provincial Nomination helps them to get an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score as well as guaranteed invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
In today’s draw, the lowest score for both Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories was 68. As compared to the previous draw held on June 06, 2019, the minimum cut-off dropped by seven points.
