SINP Express Entry & Occupation-in Demand Category
SINP has a dedicated stream which is connected to the federal Express Entry pool. Express Entry manages skilled worker applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
In order for any candidates to receive an invitation from Saskatchewan to apply for a provincial nomination, they must mandatorily submit an SINP Expression of Interest (EOI) profile.
An SINP EOI profile is evaluated on the candidate’s age, education, work experience, language skills, and ties to the province. Based on these criteria, the candidates are scored out of 100 on its International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
|EOI Points Assessment Grid|
|Education and training||Maximum 23 points|
|Skilled work experience||Maximum 15 points|
|Language ability||Maximum 20 points|
|Age||Maximum 12 points|
|Ties to the province||Maximum 30 points|
|Pass Mark||60 points|
After receiving an invitation for provincial nomination, the applicants can use their Express Entry profile to receive an additional 600 points towards their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This will effectively guarantee an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent IRCC draws.
Saskatchewan has a separate program for occupations who face labour shortages. This stream is Occupations In-Demand category and it is available to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile.
While one would require no job offer or Canadian work experience to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan under Express Entry category, work experience in specific occupations is a must to apply under Occupation-in Demand category.
