Saskatchewan Immigration Issues 120 Invitations in Latest SINP Draw

Saskatchewan has issued 120 invitations for Canadian immigration through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) in its latest Expression of Interest (EOI) draw, the first since March.

The draw, conducted on June 13, distributed 32 invitations via the Occupations In-Demand Stream and 88 through the Express Entry Stream.

The invitations targeted 59 different National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes, with applicants required to have a minimum score of 88.

Candidates must first submit an EOI profile to participate in Saskatchewan’s EOI process. Once submitted, profiles enter the candidate pool, from which selections are periodically made. 

Successful candidates receive invitations to apply and have 60 days to submit a complete application. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) officials then review these applications and make their decisions.

For the Occupation-In-Demand subcategory, candidates need to score at least 60 points on the SINP points assessment grid. They must also have a language proficiency score of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4, though employers and regulatory bodies may require higher scores.

Candidates also need at least one year of post-secondary education or training equivalent to the Canadian system, verified by an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if obtained outside Canada. 

Candidates must also possess at least one year of relevant work experience in the last 10 years and the necessary professional licensure in Saskatchewan. A detailed settlement plan and a $300 application fee are also required for proof of settlement funds.

Candidates must have an active Express Entry profile with a profile number and job seeker validation code for the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category. They must score at least 60 points on the SINP points assessment grid and provide valid language test results. 

Educational credentials must be equivalent to the Canadian system and verified by an ECA if obtained outside Canada. Work experience requirements vary but generally include one year in a skilled profession within the past 10 years, two years in a skilled trade within the past five years, or one year in Canada within the past three years. 

Occupational eligibility and necessary licensure in Saskatchewan are also required, along with proof of settlement funds and a $300 application fee.

Despite these changes, Canadian immigration officials ensure that international students can still apply for regular work permits upon graduation.
