269 Immigration Candidates Issued Invitations in Saskatchewan Draw


Saskatchewan’s Immigrant Nomination Program (SINP) held a draw on 25 May 2021 where 269 invitations were given out to candidates in the SINP’s International Skilled Worker category, specifically the Occupations In-Demand subcategory. The candidates selected from the draw had to meet the following standards:

  • They had to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) and be issued a score based on information such as their education and work experience. Their score needed to be at least 65 out of 100 based on the province’s Points Assessment Grid.
  • They needed to have an Education Credential Assessment (ECA) completed. An ECA ensures that any educational credentials received outside of Canada are equivalent to credentials from Canadian educational institutions.
  • They had to have experience in one of 36 eligible occupations, including but not limited to construction managers (NOC code 0711), bricklayers (NOC code 7281), and heavy-duty equipment mechanics (NOC code 7312).

Candidates in this subcategory were not required to have profiles in the federal Express Entry system, nor were they required to have a job offer in Saskatchewan. However, candidates with profiles in the federal Express Entry system must create an EOI with the SINP to be considered for immigration by the province.

According to the Government of Saskatchewan’s website, the number of draws and the number of candidates with EOIs selected varies according to factors such as labour market requirements and provincial priorities. Draws are held every two months at minimum.
