Saskatchewan Province presents the new Express Entry "expression of interest to apply".
The key event of this summer on July 16 was the transition of the province of Saskatchewan from the "first come first served" approach to the "Expression of interest to apply" system for the Express Entry and In-demand Profession categories. Within the framework expression of the interest system (EOI), interested candidates create a profile and provide information as the first step to consider in the immigration program.
Candidates are assessed based on the information they provide, and then distribute the order according to scores. The selected candidates with the highest rating are given an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination during periodic selections from the EOI candidate database.
21 August The Saskatchewan immigrant nomination program (SINP) issued the first invitations to apply for a provincial nomination under this new EOI system, of which 466 invitations were issued to candidates from the Express Entry subcategory.
In order to be eligible for participation, candidates must have a highly qualified experience in the profession, from the list of Saskatchewan's Wanted Professions, and meet other requirements, including obtaining at least 60 points on a unique Saskatchewan system. SINP said that the transition to the EOI system will allow it to better focus on those who, rather, will succeed in the Saskatchewan labor market.
