Saskatchewan invites 150 candidates to apply for Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams
Saskatchewan held two draws through the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand immigration sub-categories issuing a total of 150 invitations.
The break down for Saskatchewan’s August 15 provincial nomination draws are as follows:
· 45 Express Entry
· 105 Occupations In-Demand
Candidates had to have a minimum Saskatchewan Expression of Interest score of 78.
Candidates receive a score out of 100 based on factors including their education, skilled work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to Saskatchewan. The highest-scoring candidates in both sub-categories are then invited through regular draws from the pool.
Though a job offer is not required for this sub-category, a key eligibility requirement for both the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories is to have experience in one of the 19 occupations currently listed as in-demand in Saskatchewan.
The SINP has issued 1,789 invitations through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category, and 1,315 through its Express Entry sub-category so far in 2019.
The number of invitations issued in the August 15 draw (150) shows a marked decrease from the previous draw on July 24, which saw 381 invitations issued.
