    Immigration, Citizenship, and Refugees Canada offers more than 80 economic immigration programs for immigrants who wish to migrate to Canada. The Express Entry program is one of the most important immigration schemes. However, given that English is the first official language of Canada and that French is the second, the language criterion for Canada PR is very important.

    The only ways to move to Canada without having taken the IELTS test are if you are doing it temporarily, such as with a visitor or work visa. As a permanent resident, you are required to speak English well enough to interact with coworkers, neighbors, your doctor, and other people. If your English language test results are high enough, your chances of immigrating to Canada successfully increase. IELTS, CELPIP, TEF, or TCF exam results may be submitted in support of Canadian immigration by candidates.

    Non-native English speakers can find it challenging to fulfill high scoring requirements, such as CLB 7 or above, and fail to receive final approval. While applicants may perform well on other measures, such as age, employment history, and educational background, they often fall short on one of the main English language proficiency requirements for Express Entry.

    But one should never give up! The Provincial Nominee Programs in Canada come to the aid of such qualified applicants. Even with a low IELTS score between CLB 4-6, many PNP streams choose and nominate qualified candidates for Canada PR from the Express entry pool.

    Find out which Provincial Nominee Program is the best for getting a permanent residency in Canada without having to have an IELTS score of at least CLB 7 or above:

    • SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program)

    The SINP offers a variety of specialized immigration routes that let foreign nationals become Canadian citizens permanently.

    The PNP is intentionally meant to target immigrants who can help the province’s economy flourish, such as qualified workers, employees in fields where there is a lack of labor, employees who already have employment offers, and business people.

    The province runs various PNP streams, which are primarily split into three categories:

    • Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker
    • Saskatchewan Experience
    • Saskatchewan Entrepreneur and Farm

    The Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker visa is the most popular of the three thanks to its subcategories for Express Entry and occupations in demand.

    The SINP OID subcategory is the best option if your Express entry profile is still in the pool and you are awaiting your ITA for Canada PR because of a low CRS score, or more particularly, a low language proficiency score.

    Even with a CLB 4 language proficiency rating, you might choose to apply as a provincial candidate under SINP- OID.

    Yes, you must provide evidence of your proficiency in either English or French as well as a valid language test score equivalent to CLB level 4 or higher in order to be eligible for the Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand stream.

    This is significantly less than what is required under Express Entry’s FSWP, which is CLB 7 or above.
