Saskatchewan Opens for Express Entry, Occupation In-Demand candidates
On 21st June 2019, SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) opened for the potential applicants and issued 479 invitations. In this draw round, the province selects candidates with work experience in one of the five targeted occupations.
Our client Hemanth was in Express entry pool with a score of 398. It was difficult for him to get an invitation through a Federal draw. Finally, SINP helped him to realize his dream of migrating to Canada. He got an invitation under occupation in-demand category as his occupation Accounting Technician was one of the targeted occupations.
It is really important to note that Hemanth was not an Accounting Technician however we were aware that this profile is stronger than other related NOC codes. Hence, we strategically prepared his file for the same and are pleased to say this strategy worked!
Here are the five occupations that were targeted in 20th June draw to Invite candidates via Express Entry
Architectural technologists and technicians
Medical laboratory technologists.
A total of 268 invitations went to candidates in the Express entry system and 211 invitations went to in-demand category.

The province of Prince Edward Island invited 113 candidates in its latest draw. The province targeted applicants from Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact immigration categories. A majority of invitations went to the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories.
As PEI’s Express Entry stream is linked to the Government of Canada’s Express Entry system, the skilled candidates in the pool (with a separate EOI with PEI) may get to explore this option. Many of our clients come under this category. Obviously, after getting a nomination, you are awarded an additional 600 points to your comprehensive ranking score and reserving a place in the subsequent Federal draw round.
