Canada offers multiple pathways to secure Permanent Residency for skilled workers. Express Entry, being one of them, is an online application system which takes profiles of the interested candidates based on certain requirements. It involves Federal Governments, Provincial Governments and Canadian Employers. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), part of this is aligned with Express Entry, allows provinces and territories to nominate candidates for Permanent Residency as per their qualifying criteria and guidelines.
The provinces included in this program are Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP), Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP), Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP), Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP), and Yukon Nominee Program (YNP). The Northern Canada territory of Nunavut does not currently have a PNP and Quebec does not participate in the federal Government’s PNP.
While all programs have its own criteria and intentions, it is Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) that grabs attention here. As per the PNP authorities, the applicants are measured based on various points. The points can be categorized under Employment offer, Occupations In-Demand and Saskatchewan Express Entry rendering its applicants several opportunities. The points are calculated based on necessary education, in-demand skilled work experience, language ability, adaptability and other factors relating to the province specifically. The applicants are required to score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 on the SINP point grid. However, as per the recent draw held on November, 2019, the province picked applicants who scored 69 points.
A total of 200 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply in the November 28 draw. SINP has a list of In-Demand Occupations in high-skilled occupations. All in-demand occupations those are eligible under the SINP’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories are rated Skill Level A or B or Skill Type 0 under Canada’s National Occupational Classification or NOC.
Saskatchewan is Canada’s “sunniest” province attracting immigrants for its fast growing modern Economy. It is evident that more and more people are applying for permanent residency there and the province is giving an equally outstanding opportunity!
