Saskatchewan's Express Entry Stream Issues 986 Invitations for Canada PR

Recently, Saskatchewan's Express Entry Stream conducted an EOI draw on 17 October. A total of 986 applicants with special work experience were invited to appeal for nomination from the Saskatchewan province. This is the biggest-ever EOI (Expression of Interest) draw conducted by the Program of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee (SINP) so far.

SINP launched the EOI system in July 2018, intending to manage Saskatchewan's Express Entry & Occupation In-Demand pathways. The recent Saskatchewan EOI draw has produced a record by announcing the biggest number of invitations.

Saskatchewan's Express Entry stream

This stream is linked to the Canadian Express Entry system that controls immigration by 3 economic immigration classes of Canada- the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class.

To be qualified for a nomination from the Saskatchewan province, an Express Entry candidate doesn't need to have an offer of employment. However, the applicant must have valid work experience in a suitable occupation, which needs to be associated with their field of education.

In the 17 October 2019 Saskatchewan's Express Entry draw, invitations were announced to applicants with work experience in one of the below occupations:

Food service and Restaurant managers (NOC 0631)

  • Wholesale and Retail trade managers (NOC 0621)
  • Managers in agriculture (NOC 0821)
  • Construction managers (NOC 0711)
  • Accounting technicians and bookkeepers (NOC 1311)
  • Other financial officers (NOC 1114)
  • Social and community service workers (NOC 4212)
  • Information systems consultants and analysts (NOC 2171)
  • Technical sales specialists – wholesale trade (NOC 6221)
  • Early childhood assistants and educators (NOC 4214)
  • Automotive service technicians, truck & bus mechanics & mechanical repairers (NOC 7321)
  • Heavy-duty equipment mechanics (NOC 7312)

The chosen applicants also had secured a minimum score of 67 below the SINP's EOI points grid. This score is given to the applicants based on several factors such as age, language ability, education, work experience, etc. As per SINP, EOI score and profession are the two primary factors that determine a candidate’s possibilities receiving an invitation to apply from the province of Saskatchewan. The qualified professions list of Saskatchewan presently has higher than 200 occupations, which are qualified beneath sub-categories of Express Entry & Occupation in Demand.
