The Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category reached its intake quota and is no longer accepting applications.

Saskatchewan Express Entry

This Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is aligned with the federal economic Express Entry system, so in addition to meeting program eligibility criteria, interested candidates must already have an Express Entry profile to submit an application.

This program is designed to attract and retain people with skilled work experience to Saskatchewan, one of the prairie provinces in central Canada. In addition to skilled work experience and post secondary education, interested candidates have to score at least 60 out of 100 possible points in the SINP points assessment grid. While this program is only open to candidates who already have an Express Entry profile, it does require an additional complete application to the provincial immigration office.

Since this program only opens up periodically and accepts a limited number of applications, you need to prepare your application in advance. That way, you’ll be ready to submit your application as soon as the program opens. Saskatchewan does not publicize information about when the program will open, or how many applications will be accepted at each intake.


Keep in mind that if your application is approved by Saskatchewan, you will receive a nomination from the province. A provincial nomination grants 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points to your Express Entry profile, virtually guaranteeing that you will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in the next Express Entry draw.
