The province of Saskatchewan has issued a total of 621 invitations to eligible candidates under the Occupations In-Demand immigration stream and the Express Entry stream of the SINP. However, only three tech occupations are being selected. Find out more details below.


In its latest provincial draw which held on September 16, the provincial government of Saskatchewan has invited a total of 621 eligible candidates to apply for their provincial nomination program towards the Canadian permanent residence.


The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has invited candidates through the International Skilled Worker stream and via two of its most prominent immigration subcategories that are: Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand.


In order to be considered for an invitation letter in this draw applicants from both these sub-categories are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile towards the SINP. They also need to have a prior work experience under one of the three tech occupations:

  • Software engineers and designers (NOC 2173)
  • Computer programming and interactive media developers (NOC 2174), and
  • Web designers and developers (NOC 2175)

Invited applicants under both these immigration categories also had completed their education credential assessment, which assess that how their out of Canada degrees and diploma certificates are comparable with respect to Canadian education system.


Further, the SINP uses its separate EOI system to select eligible candidates that are found to be most potential to contribute towards the economy of the local labor market. The human capital factors that are taken into consideration includes: work experience, education, language proficiency skills, age and also any previous connection with the province.


The SINP uses the above five factors to evaluate the candidates eligibility and then provide a score out of 100 on their International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The candidates who scores highest on the given point grid are then issued an invitation or a nomination letter to apply for immigration.


Please note that the minimum provincial score required for the September 15 draw was equivalent to 68 for both the above categories. Those candidates that have received an invitation should have a previous connection with the province or at least 10 years of complete foreign work experience and a CLB level 8 or more.


Express Entry Sub-Category


In the recent SINP draw, the province of Saskatchewan has issued a total of 455 ITAs to candidates who have already submitted their profiles towards the federal Express Entry Pool.


The Express Entry System manages the pool of all those eligible applicants that have applied for towards the Canadian permanent residence program through three most prominent main economic class immigration programs operated by the federal government of Canada: Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class and the Federal Skilled Worker Program.


If applicants in the federal Express Entry pool also submitted their EOI for the Saskatchewan and they scores a point score equivalent to 68 points on the SINP point assessment grid they must have received an invitation to apply or a nomination letter in this latest draw.


Further, all the Express Entry candidates who apply towards the provincial nomination program and also receive a nomination letter from the provincial government of Saskatchewan are awarded an extra 600 points towards their existing Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. These extra points then effectively guarantee that the candidate will receive an invitation to apply for the Canadian permanent residence in the next Federal Express Entry Draw.


The same applied for candidates that have been chosen from any of the provincial nominee programs across Canada and are aligned with the Federal Express Entry System.


Occupation In-Demand sub-category


The Occupation In-Demand sub-category of the SINP PNP is valid for those immigration candidates who are not having a Federal Express Entry profile.


There are a total of 166 Occupations In-Demand applicants that were invited to apply for the provincial nomination program and similar to the Express Entry sub-category, these candidates also needed to have a provincial score equivalent to 68 points in order to be considered for the nomination and immigration.


Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs): Providing pathways to Canada immigration


Yes! If the federal Express Entry is not working out due to the current pandemic situation or some specific factor then you can explore other immigration options for migrating to Canada. There are a plenty of other ways to make it happen and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is one of the most prominent pathways among these alternatives to move to Canada.


The Federal Government of Canada is giving more power to all its provinces when it comes to selecting new foreign skilled immigrants. You should be aware that some of the provincial nominations result in an addition of 600-points towards your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the Express Entry System but some of these PNP streams does not work in direct alignment with the larger Express Entry System.
