Saskatchewan Invites 280 Potential Newcomers to Apply for Nomination

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has invited 280 skilled workers to apply for nomination in a recent Expression of Interest draw. Candidates with at least 77 points on the province’s points grid and experience in one of 63 select targeted occupations were selected by SINP in yesterday’s round of invitations.

Meanwhile, Saskatchewan has also recently announced that they will be investing nearly $13 million in education and skills training. These funds will be used to help to grow a skilled workforce, including engaging under-represented people in the workforce. Among the training initiatives launched with the investment will include providing in-demand skills and language training to newcomers to Canada.

“Saskatchewan’s greatest resource has always been its people and this funding supports the provincial Growth Plan priority to develop a skilled workforce in our province through education and training,”

Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison 

As Canada begins to slowly recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, provincial and federal governments are increasingly looking to immigration as a means to aid in economic recovery.

How do the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand subcategories differ?

Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupations in-Demand sub-categories are essentially identical. The main difference between the two programs are the sub-categories in which they fall under.

Saskatchewan’s in-Demand stream operates as a base provincial nominee program. This means SINP processes the application outside of the Express Entry system and applicants do not need to meet all Express Entry requirements.

In contrast, the Express Entry subcategory requires applicants to meet the requirements of the one of the Federal Express Entry classes and have an active profile in the pool.

Profiles in both sub-categories are ranked by Saskatchewan’s unique points assessment grid and must meet a minimum of 60 points to submit an Expression of Interest to the province.

Applicants that meet the minimum draw requirements may receive an invitation to apply to Saskatchewan for provincial nomination.

Successful candidates that apply under the Express Entry subcategory may receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score. As a result, they will receive an Invitation to Apply on their Express Entry profile and the subsequent permanent residence application may be eligible for expedited processing.

Applicants who receive an invitation under the Occupations in Demand stream are invited to submit a non-Express Entry PNP permanent residence application. Unlike Express Entry, this application is generally subject to longer processing times.
