For to be eligible to get the invitation in these latest round of provincial draws, candidates need to score minimum Saskatchewan Expression Of Interest (EOI) score of 78 points. These points are awarded based on the factor that includes education, skilled work experience, language proficiency in either English or French and connection to the province of Saskatchewan. Highest scoring candidates have issued the invitations through regularly held draws from the pool.
SINP’s Express entry stream is in-line with the Federal government’s Express Entry program that allows the Province to search for the skilled immigrants in the express pool to help in the development of the province. Express Entry candidates who are able to meet the requirements of SINP can get selected for the provincial nomination.
For an Express entry candidate to land a provincial nomination, it awards them with 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. With most of the Express draws requiring more than 400 points, 600 points make sure that the candidate is able to get the Invitation to Apply (ITA).
