In the recent draw held on 25th September, Saskatchewan invited 769 candidates from Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence through its provincial nomination program.
This is the first draw that is conducted since the dramatic expansion by SINP (Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program) from 19 to 218 high-skilled occupations made eligible under the province’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
The candidates invited in the September 25 draw represented 100 of the 218 eligible occupations, the SINP reported. Among the invited candidates are chemical and civil engineers, psychologists, medical radiation technologists, information system analysts, and consultants.
Work experience of one year in an eligible occupation that is related to the field of study of the candidate is among the other eligibility criteriain either of the sub-categories. However, Canadian work experience or a job offer in Saskatchewan is not required.
Out of 769, a total of 365 invitations went to Occupation In-Demand categories and the remaining 404 candidates were issued through SINP’s Express Entry sub-category.
To be considered for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, a candidate must register a separate EOI (Expression of Interest) with SINP.
