Every year, the Canadian province of Saskatchewan nominates thousands of newcomers for immigration via the Saskatchewan immigration nominee program or SINP. Since Canada is pushing to take in more and more immigrants in Canadian history, Saskatchewan and its immigration program could actually help you get a PR and as your Canada Visa consultant in Ahmedabad, we are going to tell you more about it.
SINP International Skilled Worker category, is a fantastic opportunity for skilled workers who are not currently residing in Canada, but are keen on immigrating to it. Via this stream, the province of Saskatchewan can choose candidates to nominate for immigration, if they have work experience that is relevant to one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations.
Now you must be wondering why you should choose SINP, so as the best Canadian immigration consultants in Ahmedabad let us tell you that for workers who are living overseas, there are two subcategories in the international skilled worker category that could really benefit you. The first of this is the Saskatchewan express entry and the second is the occupation in demand streams, now both of these are great options since they do not expect the immigrant to have any sort of previous connection to the province, and also do not really need for you to have a Canadian job offer in order to be invited.
In the year 2019, Saskatchewan made a lot of changes to its occupation in demand list, which has resulted in the two streams accepting applicants who have at least a year of continuous work experience in any of the skilled NOC that does not appear on the SINP excluded-occupation list. Due to this expansion being made, more and more people are now eligible to be applying in both the streams, that actually leads to a higher chance of being able to receive a provincial nomination for Canada PR.
Let’s talk about Saskatchewan express entry first – as the best immigration consultants in Ahmedabad let us tell you that this stream first requires an applicant to have a profile that is active in the Federal Express-Entry System. Apart from this, you need to have experience in one of the jobs that have been mentioned in Saskatchewan’s occupations in-demand list. If you are successful in receiving a provincial nomination, this will automatically give you an additional 600 points in the CRS score, which is very important.
Now coming to occupations-in-demand, as your Canada PR visa consultant in Ahmedabad, let us tell you that in order to apply in this subcategory, you need to have some sort of work experience in one of the jobs that have been mentioned on Saskatchewan’s occupations-in-demand list. Apart from this, you as an applicant also need to have language proficiency that is equal to the language benchmark of level four also known as CLB 4, and need to have completed a post-secondary program that was at least a year in length. One thing that needs to be noted, is that if you’re applying in the occupation in-demand category, you do not need an Express-Entry profile.
Now coming to the more functional areas, you must be wondering about how you can apply for the same type of immigration? As your Canada PR visa consultant in Ahmedabad, let us tell you that just like any other PNP, applying in the subcategories is a two-step process.
The first thing that you need to do is you need to submit an expression of interest for the SINP. On the basis of the qualifications that you have, you as a candidate will be given a score out of hundred points which is according to the SINP points assessment grade, this is something that is done for all candidates indiscriminately. Now in order to be eligible, applicants need to score at least 60 out of 100 points, if you score lesser than this, then your application will be automatically rejected. From time to time SINP will end up inviting candidates who have the highest scores to be able to submit an official application to SINP.
The second thing that you need to look into is that once you’re invited, as a candidate you need to submit an official application for the provincial nomination program. Now if you have hired yourself an immigration consultant in Ahmedabad then all these hassles will be taken care of by your immigration consultant. Hence, it is best that you go through consultancy that has a proven track record and can assist you in filling out your application. If your application is approved then the applicant, that is you, will be officially nominated by Saskatchewan and then you can apply directly to the Canadian government for a Canada PR.
Since we have talked about all this, you must be wondering what all can be expected this year if you are planning to apply? So let us tell you so far, what the trend has been like. Saskatchewan started the year on a good note and has already conducted its first draw which issued 542 invitations to apply.
