Saskatchewan is marching on the road of issuing many invitations and has issued 4,704 of them during the past six weeks. It held another immigration draw on October 31st for candidates belonging to sub-categories of Express Entry, as well as Occupation In-Demand and also issued 858 invitations. The draw was in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program pathway, which neither requires the local job offer, nor any work experience in Canada, for eligibility.
This Express Entry category of the Program has a link with the system of federal Express Entry which manages the candidates for Federal top skilled immigration in the categories of:
• Federal Skilled Trades Category
• Canadian Experience Class
• Federal Skilled Worker Category
The Occupation In-Demand category caters to such candidates who do not have the profile in Express Entry.
Holds 11 draws after September 25 and invites 4,700 candidates
The Program held six selection rounds in the Express Entry and five in the Occupation In-Demand category after September 25. Totally it issued 4,704 invitations to candidates seeking the provincial nomination related to these categories, in 11 invitation rounds.
SINP has adopted a new approach to jobs considered eligible in these sub-categories and the draws are following it. There is a requirement of one year experience of work in top demand occupations in Saskatchewan relevant to the study field.
The SINP backed off from the limited top Demand Occupation List and is presently following the Excluded Occupations List. Additionally it has expanded the list of eligible occupations to 200 from 19.
Furthermore in the October 31 draw invitations were issued to candidates in 58 jobs like human resource professionals, analysts/ consultants in Information systems Database analysts, data administrators, Drafting technicians and technologists as well as aircraft inspectors and mechanics.
