Saskatchewan can nominate eligible overseas workers for Permanent Residence through the SINP. The SINP categories are tailored to meet the labour and economic needs of the province.
To apply for a provincial nomination through Saskatchewan, the first step is to submit an online EOI with the SINP.
To apply under either the Occupations In-Demand or the Express Entry sub-category, one needs to have relevant work experience. This work experience should be in any one of the 19 occupations in the In-Demand list of the province, as per CIC News.
Express Entry candidates get an additional 600 points on their CRS score for obtaining a provincial nomination. This effectively guarantees an ITA for Canadian Permanent Residence.
The SINP Expression of Interest contains details regarding a candidate’s age, education, work experience, language proficiency, etc. The candidates are awarded points on these categories out of a total of 100.
The highest-scoring candidates are issued invitations to apply through regular draws. This is true for both the Occupations In-Demand as well as the Express Entry sub-category.
In 2019, the SINP has issued 898 invitations under the Express Entry sub-category. 1,196 invitations have been issued under the Occupations In-Demand sub-category in 2019.
