Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan Issued Invitations for Provincial Immigration

Austin Campbell



Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan

Last week, two Canadian Provinces Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan issued provincial immigration invitations to apply (ITAs) to skilled workers through provincial nominee programs (PNPs). Most of the provinces and territories in Canada except Quebec and Nunavut manage their own PNPs. Quebec’s immigration programs are separate from those in Canada and are administered by the province itself.

Only through these provincial programs, interested candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination. However, the provincial nomination does not the same as a permanent residence, but it can be the first move towards getting permanent residence from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Provincial Immigration Results (November 4th – 11th)

Nova Scotia

On November 8, Nova Scotia released letters of interest to candidates via the Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities stream. Also, Nova Scotia’s immigration office has published the criteria for getting a letter of interest. This was the first provincial draw since February.   

The stream requires candidates to meet specific eligibility criteria, such as the following:

  • An applicant must have chosen French as their first official language and have a minimum language requirement of CLB 10 or higher in French language abilities.
  • Must have selected English as a second official language and have a minimum language requirement of CLB 7 or higher in English language abilities.
  • Must have held a bachelor’s degree or have studied a program for 3 or more years at a university.

Applicants who have decided to apply to the province must provide the following documents;

  • Copies of French and English language tests;
  • Proof of education with an ECA.


On November 8, Saskatchewan invited 35 candidates through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). This was the first provincial draw since September 28. The province invited 21 applicants through the Express Entry category as well as 10 from the Occupations-In-Demand category. The province also issued invitations to four candidates who live in Ukraine. The minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score required in both categories was 69.

Like the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), EOI profiles are scored based on the province’s points grid, and the top performers are invited to apply through monthly draws.
