Another 205 immigration candidates have been invited to enter the new draw that allows them to apply for permanent residence in the province of Saskatchewan.
This comes after the Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee (SINP) announced the report on March 26. Applicants under the new draw do not require job invitations to enter the nominations. However, they need to have a year’s experience in their specific field of study.
On March 16, the Canadian government restructured its immigration policies and framework as part of the plan to deal with the current global corona virus pandemic. As a result, several Canadian provinces have held provincial nominations. They include British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The immigration nominations taking place at the provincial level are an addition to the federal Express-Entry program that was announced on March 18.
Saskatchewan has its own guiding rules for its Occupation In-Demand sub-category. Under the said program, applicants underwent Education Credential Assessments. On top of that, they had to fulfill one of the following requirements: They either had a close relative in Saskatchewan or s/he took a post secondary course in one of the tertiary learning institutions in the province.
Seventy-one candidates successfully fulfilled the requirements and were selected across different industrial fields. The lot consisted of medical lab scientists, corporate sales professionals, and college instructors.
The candidates also had to show their interest in the jobs by submitting an Expression of Interest (EoI) profile to the SINP. Creating an EOI profile allows SINP to assess the candidate’s potential to successfully live in the prairie province. Through the document, a candidate’s ability to settle in Saskatchewan can be determined based on their work experience, education, ability to speak Canadian, among other related factors.
