Saskatchewan Issues 120 Invitations in First Immigration Draw Since March

Saskatchewan has issued 120 invitations for Canadian immigration in its latest Expression of Interest (EOI) draw through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). This draw, conducted on June 13, is the first since March.

The draw included 32 invitations through the Occupations In-Demand Stream and 88 through the Express Entry Stream. 

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

To participate, candidates must first submit an EOI profile, which then enters the EOI candidate pool. Candidates are periodically selected from this pool and issued invitations to apply.

 If invited, applicants have 60 days to submit a complete application, which is then reviewed by SINP officials.

For the Occupations In-Demand Sub-Category, candidates need a minimum score of 60 points on the SINP assessment grid. They must achieve a language score of at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4. 

They need at least one year of post-secondary education, training, or apprenticeship equivalent to the Canadian system. They also need work experience of at least one year in the last 10 years in their field of education or training. 

Professional licensure in Saskatchewan is necessary for regulated occupations. Proof of settlement funds and a detailed settlement plan must also be provided. The application fee is $300.

For the Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category, candidates must have an active Express Entry profile with a profile number and job seeker validation code. They must score at least 60 points on the SINP assessment grid and provide valid language test results matching those in their Express Entry profile. 

They must have completed at least one year of post-secondary education or training, and their credentials must have been evaluated through an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if obtained outside Canada. 

Work experience requirements vary depending on the profession and trade. Professional licensure and proof of settlement funds with a settlement plan are also required. The application fee is $300.

These measures are in place to ensure that candidates are well-prepared to integrate into Saskatchewan’s workforce and communities.
