769 Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand candidates were invited by The province of Saskatchewan to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in draws that took place on September 25.
The draws were first held since the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) significantly increased the number of slots for high-skilled occupations that are qualified under its well known Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories. The expansion of the high skilled occupations was increased from 19 to 218 last week.
In a report, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program stated that parties invited in the draws that were held on September 25 represented 100 occupations. Some of the professions that were represented by the parties present include information systems analysts, civil and chemical engineers, psychologists, radiation technologists, and consultants.
One of the key requirements for the candidates who wish to be considered for a provincial nomination is one year experience in a suitable profession. The candidate’s profession should also be related to their field of study. The provincial nomination could either be through a sub-category or any other criteria provided.
An employment offer in Saskatchewan and Canadian work experience are not compulsory.
The draws held on September 25 were among the biggest draws held in Saskatchewan since the shift from Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system happened in July 2018.
