Saskatchewan came up with a new Expression of Interest System (EIS). Through this system, they have currently issued 4,080 invitations to potential candidates for permanent residency in the province.
In a draw held on December 6, they gave out 743 new invitations to potential candidates in their Express Entry Immigration and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories.
According to the immigration department, 532 out of these invitations were issued to the Occupation-In-Demand sub-category. This move was to tap skilled workers for the rapid-growing Canadian labour market.
The Immigrant Nominee program bagged the remaining 211 invitations. Express Entry Sub-category in conjunction with the Federal Express Entry Systems have an arrangement that allows the province to nominate its immigrations candidates for permanent residency. This helps Saskatchewan to filter candidates from a long list of candidates to come up with the most suitable individuals.
Additionally, there will be a provincial level nomination in the Express Entry sub-category. Those who succeed in this stage will get 600 points and this will be good for their EE ranking score. In fact, this is an assurance that they will receive an invitation from the Canadian Government to apply for permanent residence.
