October 3, 2019 – The province of Saskatchewan recently held the second draw on October 2 with an invitation to 610 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
This was the second major draw in the last two weeks since the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has expanded the list of high-skilled occupations. The expanded list of occupation lies under the Express Entry and Occupation in-demand sub-category. Previously, the draw was held on September 25, wherein 769 candidates were invited to apply for the provincial nomination.
According to SINP, the invited candidates will fall among the 77 occupations, among those are Human resources, Engineers, Computer network technicians, Educational counselors, Legal assistants, National and applied science researchers and Cleaning supervisors.
To be considered for the provincial nomination in either sub-category, candidates need to have at least 1 year of work experience in an eligible occupation similar to their field of study. However, a job offer in Saskatchewan and Canadian work experience are not so required.
The draws held on October 2 and September 25 were among the largest held by Saskatchewan since they shifted the two (Express entry and In-demand sub-categories) to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system on July 2018.
