Saskatchewan’s latest nominee draws invited candidates eligible under two subcategories of the International Skilled Worker Stream:

Candidates that received an invitation in this draw were chosen based on their work experience in one of 31 select occupations.

The Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry subcategories provide a pathway to permanent residence for candidates interested in making Saskatchewan their home. The advantage of these streams is that they don’t require a connection to Saskatchewan to be considered for nomination.

SINP uses a points-based system to rank interested applicants. Those with the highest scores, and work experience in an in-demand occupation, are invited to apply for provincial nomination. Successful candidates may use their provincial nomination to apply for Canadian permanent residency.

March 8th SINP draw results:

SINP Occupations in Demand subcategory 

  • Invitations: 43
  • Minimum score: 87

Express Entry subcategory

  • Invitations: 39
  • Minimum score: 87

Invited candidates had an Education Credential Assessment and experience in one of the 31 targeted NOC codes.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program also held three draws in the past week that targeted candidates whose current country of residence is Ukraine. The minimum scores for these draws were between 60-61.

How do Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand subcategories differ?

Saskatchewan’s Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories both fall under the International Skilled Worker category. The eligibility requirements for the two sub-categories are essentially the same, the main difference being the subsequent permanent residence application process.

Saskatchewan’s in-demand stream operates as a base provincial nominee program. This means SINP processes the application outside of the Express Entry system and applicants do not need to meet all Express Entry requirements.

In contrast, the Express Entry subcategory requires applicants to meet the requirements of one of the Federal Express Entry classes and have an active profile in the pool.

Profiles in both sub-categories are ranked by Saskatchewan’s unique points assessment grid and must meet a minimum of 60 points to submit an Expression of Interest to the province.

Applicants that meet the minimum draw requirements may receive an invitation to apply to Saskatchewan for provincial nomination.

Successful candidates that apply under the Express Entry subcategory may receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score. As a result, they will receive an Invitation to Apply on their Express Entry profile and the subsequent permanent residence application may be eligible for expedited processing.

Applicants who receive an invitation under the Occupations in Demand stream are invited to submit a non-Express Entry PNP permanent residence application. Unlike Express Entry, this application is generally subject to longer processing times.

Which occupations were selected in Saskatchewan’s latest Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry draw?

In addition to meeting the minimum score requirement of 87 points, candidates must have had indicated the following NOC codes on their profile:

The same occupational codes were targeted in both the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand draws.
