Canada’s Saskatchewan Province Reopens Express Entry Stream

A successful nomination through this stream will result in successful applicants being awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System and an Invitation to Apply at a subsequent draw from the pool.

Canada Named Most Reputable Country In The World

Located in the Prairie region of Western Canada, Saskatchewan is one of Canada’s most economically stable provinces.

Successful candidates and their families will obtain Canadian permanent residence, with the government of Canada aiming to process applications within six months of a complete application being submitted at the federal stage. As candidates are selected by the province from the federal Express Entry pool, all candidates must be eligible for one of the federal economic immigration programs:

• Federal Skilled Worker Program
• Federal Skilled Trades Program
• Canadian Experience Class

Canada Immigration also points out that applicants would require at least 60 points on the SINP point assessment grid. Points are awarded on the basis of five factors:

• Education & Training Maximum 23 points
• Work experience Maximum 15 points
• Language ability Maximum 20 points
• Age Maximum 12 points
• Connection to SK labour market & adaptability Maximum 30 points*

Required pass mark: 60 points

Those with close relatives, such as parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, cousin and step-family members or in-laws, legally living in Canada will score 20 points off the mark. The relative must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident currently living in Saskatchewan.

The system awards 5 points for previous work experience in Saskatchewan. This would mean that the applicant must have worked in Saskatchewan for at least twelve months in the past five years on a valid work permit to be considered for the 5 bonus points.

Students who have studied in Saskatchewan are also eligible for 5 bonus points if the applicant studied at a recognized Saskatchewan education institution for at least one full time academic year on a valid study permit.

Overall to be considered for a Canadian visa the applicant must be able to;

• Demonstrate proficiency in either English or French, in order to enter the Express Entry pool. Language ability is determined by the candidate sitting a standardised language test, the most common of which are the IELTS or CELPIP for English and TEF for French; and
• Have completed a minimum of one year of post-secondary education or training that has resulted in a degree, diploma, certificate, or a certificate equivalent to a trade certificate and which is comparable to the Canadian education system, as verified by an Educational Credential Assessment.
• Demonstrate a minimum level of work experience related to his or her field of education or training.

This work experience may be either:

• at least one year of work experience in the past 10 years in a skilled profession (non-trades); or
• at least two years of work experience in a skilled trade in the past five years; or
• at least one year of skilled work experience in Canada in the past three years (trades and non-trades). This work experience must be in a high skilled occupation (NOC “0”, “A” or “B”) that is considered to be in-demand in Saskatchewan.
