There are so many immigration streams under 10 provinces and 3 territories. Thus, it is quite difficult to track which are active now, what sort of changes are being implemented or how to apply for a PNP sponsorship. This is why we send weekly newsletters exclusively detailing the provincial immigration activities and ensure that you’re completely aware of the present scenario and be well-prepared.
We are approaching October, the Federal election time in Canada. As we stated before, we may see many changes as per who wins this time and reigns the government. For now, let’s look at the recent Provincial openings!
Saskatchewan to be the Star of this Week’s PNP Draw Performance. As…
A few days after Saskatchewan significantly expanded the list of eligible in-demand occupations, the province has conducted a draw. Having more than 200 occupations (previously it was 19) in the list, SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) has caught the attention of foreign workers who are waiting eagerly in the pool for a Provincial nomination.
In the recent draw round, Saskatchewan invites 769 Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates. It’s a big number and calling it one of the major draws to happen in 2019 wouldn’t be wrong.
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who obtain a provincial nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category are awarded an additional 600 points towards their ranking score, leading to an invitation in the subsequent draw round. The Selected Candidates under the Occupation-demand list will apply directly under SINP without an EE profile.
The provincial capital, Regina is a good place to live for migrants. Furthermore, Saskatoon, the largest city of Saskatchewan is also showing great interest to welcome immigrants. Both the cities are developing at a faster rate to catch up to their provincial competitors.
With modern technology, new skilled workers are being scouted to the local labour market, every year. As it is a matter of national economy, no province, including Saskatchewan want to take the risk of a labour shortage and halt the growth of the industries. To review your eligibility for SINP, CALL NOW.
On 19th September 2019, the much-awaited Canadian province, Quebec opened for the French-speaking foreign skilled workers.
In the draw round, applicants under Quebec Skilled Worker Program and with a profile in Arrima system were given the opportunity to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate. Furthermore, the province added an additional condition (with the above criteria) and only selected applicants who had their previous applications cancelled under immigration reform by the province.
Prince Edward Island Invites Candidates Under Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Work Permit
PEI issued new invitations on 19th September 2019 to apply for a provincial nomination to 122 candidates in its Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact immigration 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.
It is good to see that PEI PNP is opening for multiple times in 2019. We’ll keep you posted on further developments with this province. You only need to make sure you’re in the pool as quickly as possible.
