Saskatchewan held the largest ever provincial draw on 17th October. The SINP invited 986 candidates from the Express Entry Pool for a provincial nomination.
To apply under the Express Entry sub-category, you need to lodge an EOI with the SINP. Eligible candidates need to have work experience in an occupation that is high in demand in the province.
In June 2018, Saskatchewan launched its own EOI system. The SINP EOI system manages both the Express Entry and the Occupations In-demand sub-categories.
The SINP Express Entry sub-stream is linked to the Federal Express Entry Program. A provincial nomination from Saskatchewan adds 600 points to a candidate’s CRS score.
A job offer is not compulsory to apply under the SINP Express Entry sub-stream. You must, however, have work experience in an occupation that is in high demand in the province.
The 17th October draw issued invitations under the following NOC codes:
- NOC 0621- Retail and wholesale trade managers
- NOC 2171– Information system analyst and consultants
- NOC 7321- Automotove service technicians, truck & bus mechanics & mechanical repairs

- NOC 6221- Technical sales specialists- wholesale trade
- NOC 0821- Manager in agriculture
The minimum required score in the 17th October draw was 67 points.
The SINP states that the major factors that get you an invitation are your occupation and score.
The SINP has recently increased the number of eligible occupations under the Express Entry and Occupations In-demand sub-streams from 19 to over 200.
