Saskatchewan Conducts Largest Single Stream Draw in Program History – 2,155 invitations this month

The Canadian province of Saskatchewan has announced details of their largest draw ever recorded for a single stream. Yesterday’s draw issued 986 invitations to eligible candidates under Saskatchewan’s Express Entry stream, offered under the International Skilled Worker category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program. Candidates who received an invitation hold work experience in one of thirteen in-demand occupations, including information systems analysts and consultants (NOC 2171).

Like other Canadian provinces, Saskachewan has developed a Provincial Nominee Program to attract and retain skilled newcomers to the province. Those selected for immigration through International Skilled Worker streams hold work experience in an occupation the province has determined as in-demand. Throughout October, Saskatchewan has selected a handful of occupations to target, and applicants holding work experience in in-demand occupations are eligible to receive an invitation to apply directly to the province for Canadian permanent resident status. With Canadian PR, newcomers and their families can live and work anywhere in the country!

Those selected in yesterday’s draw will benefit from Express Entry’s fast and efficient application and processing system. Additionally, they will receive a nomination from Saskatchewan for Canadian immigration, resulting in 600 points added to their Comprehensive Ranking System score in the Express Entry pool. These extra points will propel a candidate to the top tier of the pool, making them very competitive to receive an ITA in the next federal Express Entry draw.

How To Join the Pool and be Considered in the Next Draw

As Saskatchewan continues to conduct large-scale and frequent draws this October, candidates with in-demand work experience are in an excellent position to apply. The first step is creating an Express Entry profile in the Federal pool, accessible online from anywhere in the world. With an active profile created, candidates can submit an Expression of Interest to the province for consideration in the stream. 

Those eligible will be able to demonstrate one year of work experience in an occupation at National Occupation Classification level A, B or 0, that is not listed on the SINP Excluded Occupation List. Candidates will also have one year of post-secondary education, and meet the Express Entry requirements for language proficiency in English or French.

With 2,155 invitations already issued this month through the International Skilled Worker category, the province of Saskatchewan is actively inviting international workers to make their home in the province! Yesterday’s historic draw is a great indication that Saskatchewan is hungry to fill jobs, and bring in newcomers who will make lasting connections to the workforce and community. 

If living and working in Saskatchewan is something you’d like to know more about, the first step is finding out if you’re eligible! Complete our online assessment and a member of our team will let you know your options and first steps.
