PNP Draw Results

Last week, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia announced their PNP draw results. Most Canadian provinces and territories except Quebec and Nunavut manage their own PNPs. Through these pathways, interested and eligible applicants will be invited to apply for a provincial nomination. However, a provincial nomination is not similar to permanent residence, but it can act as a first step toward attaining permanent resident status for qualifying applicants by increasing the CRS score. For example, PNP applicants with Express Entry profiles who receive a nomination get 600 points added to their score. They also become eligible to be invited to apply for a PNP-specific round of invitations.


Saskatchewan held its largest draw of 2022 on September 1. The Canadian province issued 941 applicants from Express Entry and Occupations-In-Demand categories through Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). The province invited 312 applicants from the Express Entry category and 629 from the Occupations-In-Demand category. The minimum EOI score in both categories was 61. All the invited applicants had Educational Credential Assessments.
