In a draw held yesterday, February 27, 83 Express Entry candidates have been invited by Saskatchewan to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
The invited candidates registered an Expression of Interest (EOI) under Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker subcategory of Express Entry. This subcategory gives provinces in Canada the room to nominate candidates for the country’s permanent residence in the federal Express Entry system.
Additional 600 points are allotted to candidates whose application for provincial nomination is ratified. This ultimately takes their comprehensive ranking score (CRS) to a level where they get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.
Immigrant Nominee Program for Saskatchewan
To receive Saskatchewan’s provincial nomination, a separate EOI must be registered with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) by Express Entry candidates.
Language proficiency, work experience, education and ties to the province, including families or province-specific study/work experience, are few of the information featured on the EOI profile.
Work experience in a high-skilled occupation enlisted on Saskatchewan’s Occupations Demand List is another requirement for Express Entry candidates.
EOI profiles are graded with those scoring at least 60 points entering the pool of candidates. From this pool, a set of the highest ranked are issued invitations via draws, done almost every two weeks.
In the February 27 draw, 68 was the minimum point invited to apply for a provincial nomination.
Candidates in the Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Canadian Experience Class are managed by Canada Express Entry system.
Canada remains an enticing destination for immigrants who want to live and work in the country.
