With all Canadian provinces holding their final draws of the year, it seems that 2020 immigration has not been a complete failure. Saskatchewan recently hosted a draw on December 17 in an attempt to attract some more eligible workers to the province before the end of the year.
The immigration candidates who were successful in receiving invitations to apply during the draw are now at liberty to apply for a nomination from the province that will give them an edge when it comes to acquiring Canadian PR.
Details of the draw
The candidates invited in this draw had already submitted their Expression of Interest profiles with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program or the SINP. The International Skilled Worker category was the main focus of this draw. SINP specifically targeted the following two subcategories: Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry.
A majority of the invitations, 386 to be precise, were assigned to candidates belonging to Occupations In-Demand. Another 190 invitations were issued to Express Entry candidates. Altogether, Saskatchewan distributed 576 invitations in this draw.
The minimum EOI score required for candidates in both subcategories was 71, and it was mandatory for them to have their Educational Credential Assignments. The candidates who were successful in this draw had professional experience in any of the 89 eligible occupations listed by Saskatchewan.
The EOI system is an essential tool for measuring a candidate’s chances of success in the provincial labor market. SINP is always on the hunt for candidates who can show that they are dedicated to building a wonderful life in Saskatchewan. Candidates are usually ranked on the basis of the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
