On September 6, Saskatchewan conducted back-to-back Expression of Interest (EOI) draws on a single day – issuing a total of 760 invitations across Express Entry and Occupation in-demand candidates. 

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) limits the selection of EOIs by in-demand occupations so that potential candidates are selected – and that nominations do not exceed employment demand. 

The size and frequency of the Expression of Interest (EOI) selection are determined by the SINP’s application backlog at that time. SINP draws are usually held on a bi-monthly basis – with some exceptions. The dates of the selections will not be posted before they take place.

How does the SINP work?

Launched back in 1998, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is designed to help address economic and labor market shortages through immigration to the province. 

The provincial government offers four key streams to its aspiring immigrants from across the world.

  • International Skilled Worker Category.
  • Saskatchewan Experience Category.
  • Entrepreneur and Farm Category.
  • International Graduate Entrepreneur Category.

Candidates are ranked based on the information provided to them while creating a SINP profile. The highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply to the SINP. 

Having a job offer in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan drastically increases your chances of qualifying under the SINP. 

As per the eligibility criteria of the Saskatchewan PNP, if your occupation is not on the in-demand list – you can face certain challenges submitting your profile. 

But don’t get disheartened, most of the codes are present in Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupation list. The province is facing drastic labor market shortages across almost every sector. The province keeps on updating its list every now and then.

You can either:

  • Wait till Saskatchewan province changes its NOC list or,
  • Apply for a NOC that is similar to your occupation.

The key thing is the job duties. The organizational designations are interchangeable. Match the duties in the NOC to the duties outlined in your job description and use that NOC.
