SINP – Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program invited applicants from the International Skilled Worker category in two sub-categories: Express Entry and In-Demand Occupations. They sent a total of 534 invitations to potential immigrants.
To get an invitation in this latest round of invitations, applicants from both sub-categories must have submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles to the SINP. Both candidates required a minimum score of 68, but from there the requirements differed.
The 272 Express Entry invited candidates could only qualify for an invitation with 68 points if they had 10 years of work experience and a Canadian Language Proficiency Level (CLB) of 8 or higher. Otherwise, they would need an EOI score of 69 or higher. There were 47 occupations included in the draw for the Express Entry subcategory.
The 262 applicants invited to the In-Demand Professions subcategory all required a credential assessment. 55 occupations were included in this provincial draw.
With the EOI system, SINP uses an EOI system to select candidates who have the most potential to succeed in the regional labor market. Applicants must demonstrate their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan by highlighting their work experience, education, language skills, age, and connection to the province.
SINP uses these five factors to assess applicants and assign them a score out of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-rated candidates then receive an invitation to apply for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination.

In the last round of invitations, Saskatchewan issued 272 invitations to applicants who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.
The federal Express Entry system manages the applicant pool for three of Canada’s major economy class immigration programs: the Skilled Worker Program, the Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
If applicants from the Federal Express Entry pool also completed an Expression of Interest in Saskatchewan and scored 68 points on the SINP Points Assessment Grid, they may have been invited to the last draw.
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan receive an additional 600 points for their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This award effectively ensures that they will be invited to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw, as most invitation rounds invite applicants with scores above 470.
SINP’s In-Demand Professions sub-category is open to immigrant applicants who do not have a federal Express Entry profile. This program is for immigrant applicants who have work experience in labor-intensive occupations in Saskatchewan.
There were 262 candidates for in-demand occupations invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry subcategory, applicants had to achieve a provincial score of 68 to be selected.
