In total, 6,082 SINP candidates successfully received ITAs this year so far.
To get invited, candidates must have submitted a SINP EOI profile. While submitting profiles, candidates must show that they have the ability to settle in the Saskatchewan province. The candidates are also evaluated based on factors like education, age, work experience, connections in the province, and language proficiency in English.
Candidates are given a score out of 100 on the Points Assessment Grid for the International Skilled Worker EOI system. Candidates who get the highest scores get an ITA to apply for a provincial nomination. They can use it to submit their application for Canada PR to IRCC.
Candidates must show a minimum of a year’s work experience. They however don’t need a job offer from the Saskatchewan province to be eligible for invitation. The work experience must be in a skilled occupation that’s connected to their education.
Candidates who are successful in both draw rounds must have submitted an Educational Credential Assessment to the province. This will prove that the candidate’s educational qualification can be compared to Candian standards.
