In the recent proceedings, Saskatchewan invited nearly 1,000 express entry candidates with the work experience according to their demands. The 986 invitations were sent to the candidates in the federal express entry system who had registered separately in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

The program allowed Saskatchewan to nominate immigration candidate with skills required in the province’s labor market.

The 986 invitations were sent to the candidates in the single draws through the SINP’s Expression of Interest (EOI) system which was introduced in July 2018 to completely manage the pool of candidates for the Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration pathways.

The SINP’s Express entry system is linked to the federal Express Entry System which completely managers the pool of Candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Traders Class.

The October 17 draw issued invitations to Express Entry candidates with work experience in the following 12 occupations. “NOC” stands for the profession’s National Occupational Classification code.

  • Retail and wholesale trade managers (NOC 0621)
  • Restaurant and food service managers (NOC 0631)
  • Construction managers (NOC 0711)
  • Managers in agriculture (NOC 0821)

Express Entry candidates invited in the SINP’s October 17 draw had a minimum score of 67 under the SINP’s EOI point’s grid.

This score is completely based on factors including age, education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan among others.
