Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) released the nomination results of EOI draws held on December 15. The provincial draws invited 635 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence (PR).
The province invited 348 candidates under the Express Entry stream, and 285 candidates under Occupations-In-Demand stream in the latest EOI draw. Candidates from both categories required a minimum score of 82 points to qualify.
EOI draw requires interested candidates to get their profile assessed on a score out of 100 according to the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
The province favors candidates with bilingual capability in both English and French. The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.
The invited candidates usually have work experience as managers or executives in IT, Healthcare, Agriculture, or Service industries.

More PNP intakes than Express Entry in 2023
Saskatchewan has expectations to meet and exceed the cap of 6,000 under the Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program. The province expects that international recruitment may be delayed without the increase of the federal cap.
But the new immigration levels plan 2023-25 increases the intake target for Canada PNP and we would expect a rise in the SINP’s intake cap.
Canada has recognized that provincial governments are in the best position to respond to local labor market necessities with new immigrants. Even during the peak of the pandemic, IRCC’s Express Entry draws invited only eligible candidates with prior provincial nominations to apply for Canadian permanent residency.
Qualifying for Upcoming Saskatchewan PNP Draws
In order to be considered for nominations under the upcoming Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) draws, candidates must register their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the provincial authority.
Candidates must demonstrate their commitment to meaningfully settling in Saskatchewan by demonstrating their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.
All the invited candidates must have valid Educational Credential Assessments.
Additionally, candidates already in the federal Express Entry pool need to register another EOI and choose Saskatchewan.
Route to Permanent Residency
On successfully receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination, candidates are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. It will effectively guarantee an ITA for Canada PR in the subsequent Express Entry draw conducted by IRCC.
