Saskatchewan is a beautiful and nature-blessed province of Canada, and the Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category is especially developed to endorse experienced skilled professionals from abroad who want to live and work in this province of the Maple Leaf Country.
The sub category permits the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to offer nomination to applicants from the Express Entry Pool under the apex immigration authority, i.e., the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-category is fast-tracked and the maximum processing duration has been fixed to six months. It has eventually shifted from the economic model of first come first basis to more serious and justified model an ‘invitation to apply’.
- Applicants must have created the Express Entry profile and have successfully received a job seeker validation Code (those without a job offer or a provincial nomination), and an Express Entry profile number.
- They must have scored at least 60 points on the scale of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid.
- They should have appeared for a language test, such as the IELTS and scored at par with the set level of Express Entry profile.
- They should have a minimum of one year post secondary qualification.
Prospective immigrants must have a minimum of one year of work experience as a skilled professional during the last 10 years, or an experience of a minimum of two years in a skilled trade during the last five years, or an experience of minimum one year of skilled work in the Maple Leaf Country during the last three years that includes both trades and non trades. Experience must be in any of the occupations that is in demand in Saskatchewan province, and listed on the NOC “0”, “A” or “B” occupations.
Applicants–who have been successfully accepted in the Express Entry Pool–may stand eligible to submit an application for the Saskatchewan Express Entry category. Those, duly nominated by the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), will get extra points in the ranking system which may eventually lead to an ‘Invitation to apply’, and this will automatically earn the person Canada’s prized and much sought after Permanent Residency (PR) status.
Preference will be given to those candidates who are armed with the right education, work experience and other success factors necessary to integrate well into the Saskatchewan’s labor market. Success factors includes a valid job offer; qualification; language proficiency; work experience, especially in a skilled profession currently in shortage Saskatchewan; and a provincial nomination.
How the programme works?
- Aspirant needs to create an online profile on the CIC Express Entry System and successfully enter the Express Entry Pool. Once an application is accepted, he will get an Express Entry profile number along with the Job Seeker Validation Code.
- Thereafter, he needs to submit his SNIP application. For further instructions or information on the same, read the Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category Application Guide.
- The third step is to obtain all the necessary documents of proof and fill all the required forms applicable to one’s situation.
- Fourth step is to review one’s complete application along with supporting documents just to make sure the person has not missed on anything.
- Fifth step is to submit an online application to the SINP for nomination, scan and upload his forms and all his documents in a PDF format onto his application form, and make sure that he has saved and submitted his petition using the online tool.
In case the candidate has successfully met the aforesaid requirements, then his chances of making the cut and being accepted under the Saskatchewan Express Entry system are high. The province may nominate up to 775 applicants. The number includes those with or with job offer. Successful candidates may come to the province and live a peaceful life and prosper in the booming economy and minimum unemployment rate.
