17 May, 2017 Saskatchewan Express Entry Accepting New Applications | Canada Immigration News
The Saskatchewan Express Entry stream of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is accepting new applications from eligible candidates.
The stream is for candidates with an active Express Entry profile who have experience working in an occupation identified as in-demand in the province, among other criteria.
If you are eligible, you must submit an application to the SINP. Successful applicants will receive a Provincial Nomination and 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points on their Express Entry profile, virtually guaranteeing an ITA at the next Express Entry draw.
The stream operates on a first-come, first-served model, and opens to new applications periodically.
Saskatchewan recently instituted a $300 application fee, and updated the list of in-demand occupations.
Managers in social, community and correctional services
Managers in natural resources production and fishing
