Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker Reopens
The International Skilled Worker — Express Entry sub-class of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has been reopened. The Saskatchewan government renewed its website on July 20th to declare that this Canadian immigration program is presently open to new applications.
This sub-category is for skilled workers with vast knowledge in an in demand occupation in Saskatchewan and who are currently in the government Express Entry pool. As this is an improved immigration category, an outstanding nomination will result in candidates being awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and accepting an Invitation to Apply (ITA) at a draw from the Express Entry pool. This is the seventh time that the sub-category has opened since it was initially presented a year ago; the admission cap normally fills almost immediately, often within a few days, or even hours.
