In the first week of November, the province of Saskatchewan conducted another large draw for the candidates under Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry subcategories. SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) used the newly introduced Expression of Interest system for this round.
The minimum score for Occupations In-Demand category was 61 out of 100 points on the assessment grid. On the other hand, for the candidates under the Expression of Interest system, the minimum required score was 60.
A total of 926 invitations were issued, 671 invitations to the Occupation In-Demand candidates and 225 to Expression of Interest candidates with an EOI profile.
What Can You Expect From Saskatchewan PNP?
As of late, there is a significant difference in the total number of invitations issued in each draw round. But the promising point is, there is a constant drop in the required points. Also, SINP does not have minimum CRS criteria. As long as the candidate has the required points and has an occupation that falls under the current in-demand occupation list.
So, it would not be off the mark to say you can get a nomination from Saskatchewan with a low score. Furthermore, the drop in cut-off points implies that the province is allowing more people to apply for permanent residence. For more information, take a look at the table below!
The Saskatchewan PNP revises the SINP in Demand Occupation list according to the labour market requirements. If you wish to process your application for SINP, you must check the latest In- Demand Occupation List beforehand.
How To Apply For Saskatchewan, Canada?
– To get an invitation from Saskatchewan under the Occupations In-Demand/Express Entry sub-category, a candidate must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) application.
– The candidate has to provide current and accurate information in the EOI System. If there is any change, the candidate must update the profile.
– Before creating an EOI, the candidate needs to complete an online form (known as the SINP Points Assessment Grid) to demonstrate his/her eligibility and qualification.
– Candidates can only have one active EOI profile in the system at any time. Then SINP will rank the candidates in the pool according to their scores.
– The applicants will receive their invitations through the regular draws from Saskatchewan’s EOI pool.
– Once you get the invitation from SINP, you will have an interval of 60 days to submit all the correct documents and pay a fee of 300 CAD to process your application for the second stage.
We have mentioned many times how a provincial nomination increases your chances of immigration as you earn 600 additional points towards your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score. These points can reserve a seat for any candidate in the upcoming draw rounds.
