On November 3, 2020, Saskatchewan held a round of PNP draw issuing 534 ITAs to immigration candidates. The candidates were chosen from the sub-categories of the International Skilled Worker category namely: Occupations in Demand and Express Entry.
To receive ITA in the draw the candidates must have had submitted EOI profiles with Saskatchewan PNP. The minimum cut-off score required of the candidates was 68. Other requirements differed between sub-categories.
262 candidates were invited from the Occupations in Demand sub-category. They all required assessment of educational credentials. 55 jobs were included under the Occupations in Demand sub-category.
The Express Entry candidates invited came to 272 who must have had 10 years’ work experience. They also required a CLB score of 8 or more. Without that, they had to have a minimum of 69 as EOI score. There were 47 jobs included in this round of invitations under the Express Entry sub-category.
The potential of the candidate to succeed in Saskatchewan’s labor market is the main criterion used to select the right candidate. These Canada immigration candidates must demonstrate the commitment to live and work optimally in the province. This is done by showcasing their education, work experience, age, language skills, and connections in Saskatchewan.
Using these factors SINP assesses candidates and assigns a score out of 100 on the international Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The candidates who get the highest scores are invited to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.
About the Occupations in Demand sub-category
This sub-category is for candidates who don’t have a federal Express Entry profile. The candidates under this category work experience in jobs in which there are labor shortages in Saskatchewan. They are in-demand to work in Canada in the Saskatchewan province.
About the Express Entry sub-category
The federal government maintains a pool of profiles along with the applications of candidates seeking admission for 3 main economic class immigration programs namely FSWP, FSTP, and CEC.
Express Entry candidates who get provincial nominations from a Canadian province are awarded 600 extra points on their CRS scores. With this, they will be assured of getting ITA in a federal Express Entry draw coming up in the future.
