Saskatchewan PNP invites 65 immigration candidates, offers nomination

It may well be the sign of things coming around and returning to the pre-COVID state that the Canadian province of Saskatchewan has held its largest Entrepreneur Stream draw on November 4, 2021, after the province resumed immigration draws after the COVID-19 crisis. Invitations were issued by Saskatchewan PNP to 65 immigration candidates who had a minimum score of 100.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, SINP had suspended the draw. The November 4 draw is the third immigration draw since the start of the pandemic conducted by Saskatchewan PNP.

If more than one immigration candidate gets the same score on the points grid used by the Entrepreneur Stream, then SINP separates them based on 3 factors:

  • Ability in the official language
  • Completion of an exploratory visit
  • If the candidate’s planned business is for a key economic sector

Major stages in the working of Entrepreneur Stream

  • Submitting an EOI
  • Receiving an invitation to lodge an application for provincial nomination
  • Receiving provincial nomination

The EOI has to meet the following criteria for the candidate’s entry:

  • The candidate must have at least a legally acquired net worth of $500,000.
  • The candidate must have at least 3 years of experience in entrepreneurship or management.
  • The candidate must make a minimum investment of $300,000 in Saskatoon or Regina or $200,000 in any other area in Saskatchewan.

After entering a pool for selection, the top scorers receive invitations to lodge an application for nomination. The application must have:

  • Commitment to actively participate in the daily management of the business
  • Business Establishment Plan that confirms the figures in the EOI along with at least 1/3rd ownership of a company in Saskatchewan, if the investment is under $1 million
  • Creation of more than one job for Canadian citizens/Canada PR visa holders if the business is situated in Saskatoon or Regina

 About Manitoba

Manitoba features a relaxed lifestyle and has very friendly towns and cities. Immigrants arriving in Manitoba intend to:

  • Land a good job
  • Start a new business
  • Live a new life in Manitoba

The province also has a very strong economy that offers many job opportunities for skilled workers from all over the world. Though English is the official language of Manitoba, there are many more languages spoken in the province. But that won’t be a concern to you if you are proficient in English.

Manitoba has remarkable significance in the landscape of Canada. The province’s motto is “where the heart of Canada beats”.

Manitoba is also home to a large population of immigrants; in fact, one of the largest. You can grab the opportunity to apply for a Canada PR visa through participation in Manitoba PNP draws and getting a provincial nomination.

If you have created a profile in Canada Express Entry, the most popular pathway for Canada immigration, even with a low CRS score, you could be discovered by the province if you are suitable by skills and other factors.

With a provincial nomination, you get additional 600 CRS points that can push you further to the front of the line of Canada immigration candidates waiting to be invited in a federal immigration draw.

Immigration programs of Manitoba

The Manitoba PNP manages the province’s immigration programs. These programs support the applications for Canada immigration to the federal government.

To benefit from the nomination received from Manitoba, you have to first register an EOI with Manitoba PNP. After this, you will be eligible to receive an LAA through the following immigration streams:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba
  • Skilled Workers Overseas

Manitoba PNP ranks candidates on a 1,000-points scale based on human capital factors. Those who are invited via the Skilled Workers Overseas Stream, the candidates must have a connection with the province. This connection could be through family members already in Manitoba, an invitation via a Strategic Recruitment Initiative in Manitoba, or a previous experience in Manitoba.

If you want to be invited under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba stream, you must have a job offer from a Manitoba employer.

The International Students Stream is for international students who have completed their education in Manitoba. They will have to demonstrate that they have the in-demand skills required.
