The province invited 610 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence on October 2

The province of Saskatchewan said its second round of major draws in two weeks on October 2, inviting 610 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

This is the second major draw conducted since the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) intensely enlarged the number of high-skilled occupations that are eligible under its popular Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.

The October 2 and September 25 draws were among the largest held by Saskatchewan since it swapped its Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system in July 2018.

Saskatchewan holds second round of Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand draws in two weeks.

A total of 214 invitations went to Occupation In-Demand candidates and another 396 invitations were issued through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, which is open to eligible candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

The Express Entry system survives the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main Economic Class immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination obtain an additional 600 points towards their CRS score and are effectively assured an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

In order to be reflected for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, Express Entry candidates must register a separate Expression of Interest with the SINP.

Under the SINP’s EOI system, eligible candidates are allotted a score based on factors such as their education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and links to Saskatchewan.

Candidates with the uppermost scores are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws from the SINP’s EOI pool.

The minimum scores in the SINP’s October 2 draws were 68 for both the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-category.  These minimum scores were lower than in last week’s draw, which had a minimum score of 79 for Occupations In-Demand candidates and 70 for Express Entry candidates.
