In the latest draw held on September 24, 2020, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has invited 535 immigration candidates who desire to settle in the province to apply for Canadian permanent residence. SINP sent out 278 invitations to candidates in the Express Entry and 257 in the Occupations In-Demand category. Both streams required a minimum score of 82 points.

Under the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), Canada’s provincial and territorial governments are able to nominate individuals to reside in the province/territory as permanent residents in order to meet their economic needs. 

Candidates who are interested in being nominated for Canadian permanent residence must create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with SINP. Those who complete an Expression of Interest profile automatically receive a score based on a number of criteria. You can find the criteria for the EOI point score in the SINP point assessment grid. They must also demonstrate their capacity to settle into life in Saskatchewan by listing their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province. In order to be invited by SINP, candidates must submit their Educational Credential Assessments (ECA) to show how their foreign degrees, diplomas, and certificates compare to Canadian credentials.

You may pre-qualify for a Canada immigration program.

SINP’s Express Entry sub-category is linked to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

Federal Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a SINP nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score at the federal level, on top of the points that they have in the federal Express Entry pool. The additional 600 CRS points guarantees that the candidate will also receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence under the federal Express Entry system.
