Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program Holds New Draw and Issues 452 Invitations


A draw was held on 5 August 2021 that selected 452 immigration candidates in Saskatchewan. These candidates are now eligible to apply for a provincial nomination. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) contains several categories, including the International Skilled Worker category. All of the candidates were in this category, specifically in two subcategories: Express Entry (171 candidates) and Occupation In-Demand (281 candidates). The required minimum score from Saskatchewan’s Expression of Interest (EOI) scoring system for this draw was 73.

As well as creating profiles in Saskatchewan’s EOI system, all candidates were required to have an Educational Credential Assessment to demonstrate that their educational experience is comparable to a Canadian education. As well, all candidates needed to have experience in one of 65 jobs listed by the province as in demand. The province also keeps a list of ineligible occupations, and on their website it is noted that NOC C-skill level occupations (that often require secondary school or job-specific training) and D-skill level occupations (that often require on-the-job training) are not eligible for the Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry subcategories.

The Occupation In-Demand subcategory is for candidates who have in-demand skills and work experience but do not yet have a job offer in Saskatchewan. It is suitable for candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile in the federal system. Express Entry candidates do have a profile in the federal system and have indicated an interest in Saskatchewan specifically or in any Canadian province.
