Canadian province—Saskatchewan, has introduced a new Express Entry category entitled as Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-category, under its PNP (Provincial Nominee Program). This new sub-category is committed to skilled employees who would like to reside and work in Saskatchewan.
The SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) nominates people who are in the federal Express Entry pool with proper skills, work experience as well as language abilities required to effectively settle and assimilate into province’s labor market and societies.
Under this stream, the province has allotted 775 spaces and the good thing is applicants don’t require an employment offer to apply. Successfully selected applicants will have the right to reside and work in the province with rewarding standard of living, rising economy and the low unemployment rate in Canada.
However, in order to apply for Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category, applicants must meet certain prerequisites such as; they must be accepted into federal Express Entry pool and posses Express Entry Profile Number along with Job Seeker Validation Code. Applicants should secure at least 60 points out of 100 in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program point assessment grid and language proficiency is needed either in French or English language.
Applicants must have completed at least one year of training or post-secondary education which is equivalent to Canada’s education system and has resulted in a diploma, degree, credential, or a certificate comparable to a trade credential.
Applicants should also show their minimum work experience level pertinent to their education or training field. The minimum work experience can be either one year during the past 10 years in skilled profession (non-trades), or two years in the skilled trade during the past five years or one year of skilled work experience in Canada during the past three years in trades or non-trades. The work experience should be in high skilled occupations listed on NOC “0”, “A” or “B” occupations, which are considered to be in-demand occupations in Saskatchewan.
