Saskatchewan Express Entry Canadian Immigration Stream
Saskatchewan has opened an Express Entry Canadian Immigration stream under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). The SINP can nominate candidates in Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s Express Entry Pool. The candidates need to meet the criteria for education, skilled work experience, language ability and so on. There are a lot of nominations to be issued this year–as many as 775!
How the Saskatchewan Express Entry Canadian Immigration stream works is like this: if you are nominated, you’ll be awarded 600 points under the current Comprehensive Ranking System and an invitation to apply to a draw from the pool.
Good news about the Saskatchewan Express Entry Canadian Immigration stream is that the successful canadidates AND their families get Canadian permanent residence within a goal of a very short six months!
Nominees for the Saskatchewan Express Entry Canadian Immigration Stream need to be eligible for the one of the other federal economic immigration programs. These are the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, or the Canadian Experience Class.
Also, the nominees for the SINP need to score 60 points on the SINP assessement grid. You get 23 points for education and training, 15 points for work experience, 20 points for language ability, 12 points for age, and a maximum for a nominee’s connection to the Saskatchewan labour market and their adaptability to the local labour market.
Interested in learning about the application process for the Saskatchewan Express Entry Canadian Immigration Stream? You need to submit your online profile to Express Entry immigration selection system that Citizenship & Immigration Canada puts up. Then, apply to the SINP for provincial nomination. All your docs have to be included with the SINP application. If your application is approved, then the SINP automatically passes that information on to the Express Entry system. You’ll get a letter from CIC explaining your next steps. At this point, you’ll get your extra 600 points and get an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence at a later draw from the pool. From the time you get your invitation to apply for permanent residence, you have 60 days to get your application for permanent residence into CIC.
