Saskatchewan Largest EOI Draw Invites 926 Candidates to Apply for PR

Saskatchewan Biggest Ever Expression of Interest Draw

Saskatchewan has launched the largest ever Expression of Interest draw on November 1st, 2018. The EOI draw has invited 926 candidates under Express Entry subcategory and Occupation in Demand (OID). All the candidates those are invited in the SINP draw should submit the whole application for the provincial nomination for permanent residence.

These are the highest invitations yet issued through Saskatchewan EIO, which was launched in July to maintain the pool of candidates for the Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories.

The invitations comprise a record maximum 671 to Occupation In-Demand candidates, of whom the least-ranked had a minimum score of 61 points. Surprisingly, it was the lowest score and more invitations yet opted for In-Demand Occupation Citizens in the past 4 draws that held since the sub-categories changed to Expression of Interest system.

Express Entry citizens have invited in this latest draw are 255. The least ranked applicants have 60 points which tie the least points selected in the four EOI draws that have held till today.

The Express Entry sub-category is connected to the federal system that controls the pool of Canadian candidates for three important economic immigration categories including the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Federal Skilled Worker Class.

Minimum Score for Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand Categories

Express Entry candidates should score a minimum of 60 on assessment test done by Saskatchewan. The candidates must have professional work experience in a high-skilled job found on the province’s In-Demand Occupations List. The Employment offer letter is not needed in Saskatchewan.

The candidates those who have gained a territory nomination from Express Entity will be awarded more 600 points toward their CRS score (Comprehensive Ranking System), which decides their role in the Express Entry pool.

The Occupation In-Demand is for selected candidates outside the Express Entry scheme who got minimum of 60 points on Saskatchewan’s evaluation grid and they should have a minimum of 1-year work exp in the past decade.

How does the EOI system work?

Firstly, applicants should create an EIO profile for immigration to Saskatchewan either via Express Entry or via Occupation In-Demand. Applicants should mention their work experience, education, language proficiency, and other factors.

Based on Saskatchewan’s assessment grid, eligible applicants have then provided a ranking score or points. The candidates those get highest-ranking, will be invited to apply for a territory nomination for PR through the regular draws from the Expression Of Interest pool.

The SINP says a link to the region can prove decisive in some cases where too many applicants have the same rank. Link to the region includes education, a family relative or previous work in Saskatchewan. Candidates who issued an IOA have 2 months time to submit their all necessary documents along with application.
