The Key Aspects of the draw - SINP
The selected applicants should also have Educational Credential Assessments to show that their education is similar to the Canadian education standards. The candidate should also have adequate work experience in one of the 70 in-demand occupations. Few of the listed occupations include purchasing agents and officers, social and community service workers, and educational counselors.
The Occupations In-Demand subcategory of Saskatchewan Province is a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Thus, it will help meet the labor market requirement and select applicants who don’t have a profile in an Express Entry profile. It is a subcategory designed to help highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan. The applicants need not have a job offer for selection.
The Foreign nationals should have a profile in the EOI system through the SINP online application system. The candidates for this need to have a profile as per the work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province. The applicants are scored out of 100 points based on their point assessment grid, and the High scoring applicants get selected for the provincial nomination.
The Express Entry subcategory of Saskatchewan is an enhanced PNP. The province is linked to the federal Express Entry system, and the Program has three Streams - Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
The applicants should create an expression of Interest (EOI) for Saskatchewan to be considered for the provincial nomination. The selected applicants are eligible for 600 bonus points in the next Express Entry program.
