The popular Provincial Nominee Program of Canada, i.e. Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has announced some key changes in its key streams, i.e. International Skilled Workers (ISW) - Express Entry Sub-category and Occupation in Demand (OID) Sub-category for the upcoming application intakes in the New Year 2018. Two of these changes are applicable w.e.f. December 27, 2017. Let’s take a look at these crucial changes announced in SINP- express entry and OID subcategory by the Saskatchewan government.
Key Changes in SINP- Express Entry & OID Sub-category
Here are the vital changes applicable in ISW- Express Entry and OID Sub-category of popular Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP):
All the applications received through upcoming application intakes of SINP- Express Entry as well as OID Sub-Category, need to include the Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) from a designated body with effect from December 27, 2017. The ECA is a document that verifies your qualifications obtained outside Canada.
Two key occupations, i.e. NOC 2231 (Civil Engineer Technologists and Technicians) and NOC 2253 (Draft Technologists and Technicians) have been eliminated from the Saskatchewan In-Demand Occupation List w.e.f. December 27, 2017. The SINP Occupation in Demand list includes the occupations, which are facing skill shortage and hence, are highly in demand across the province of Saskatchewan.
The settlement fund needed for the SINP- Express Entry and Occupation in Demand (OID) Streams will be revised as per the requirements of Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on 5th March, 2018.
What are Express Entry & OID Sub-categories of SINP?
The OID sub-category has been designed to select suitable skilled workers for the skill shortage occupations in the Saskatchewan province. Saskatchewan government also release updated occupation list, i.e. Saskatchewan in Demand Occupation list annually to invite nomination applications from the applicants who have skills and experience matching these occupations. The selected applicants in this stream get provincial nomination, which in turn make them eligible to apply Canada PR to IRCC.
On the other hand, Express Entry sub-category allows the Saskatchewan to select suitable skilled workers from federal government’s Express Entry System pool. The SINP notify the suitable applicants from Express Entry pool, so that they can apply for provincial nomination via SINP- express entry stream. The selected applicants under this category become eligible to get additional 600 CRS points in express entry, which in turn makes them eligible to get ITA (Invitation to Apply) Canada PR in the subsequent draw of federal express entry system.
