Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker EOI System was introduced in July with an aim of managing the Express Entry pool of candidates and the Occupation In-Demand sub-categories. The system has issued most of the combined invitations since it was introduced.
671 invitations were issued to the Occupation In-demand candidates with lowest ranked candidate holding scores of 61 points. The Occupation In-Demand sub-category is for the eligible candidates outside of the Express Entry System.
This draw was the largest among all draws since subcategory was moved to the EOI system. It has issued the largest number of invitations with the lowest score ever yet selected for the In-Demand occupation candidates.
255 invitations were issued to the Express Entry candidates with the lowest ranked candidates holding scores of 60 points through this Expression of Interest Draw. The express entry category is linked to the Federal Express Entry System that manages the candidate’s pool for the three main immigration categories of Canada, “ Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and the Canadian Experience Class”.
The minimum score an express entry candidate must score is 60 on the point’s assessment grid of Saskatchewan. The candidate must have a work experience in a highly skilled occupation listed in the In-Demand Occupations list, among other criteria. They don’t need to show a job offer.
Candidates will get 600 additional points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score on receiving a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan. This prioritizes their entry in the Express Entry Pool.
