The popular Saskatchewan Express Entry stream of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is now open to new applications! This stream only opens periodically and accepts a limited number of applications at each intake. Once the threshold is reached, the program will close again.

Update: Please note that as of January 11, 2018, this program is closed. It is expected to open again in the future.

The Saskatchewan Express Entry stream is only available to candidates who are already in the federal Express Entry pool. To be eligible, you must also have experience in one of the occupations that has been identified as in-demand in the province. This list of in-demand occupations was updated last week.

An application to the Saskatchewan Express Entry stream represents an entirely separate application from submitting your profile to the Express Entry pool, or from eventually submitting an application for permanent residence, if you receive an invitation to do so.

Due to the popularity of the program, and the limited number of applications that are accepted, this stream usually closes quickly. Therefore, it’s important to prepare your application well in advance, so you’re prepared to submit as soon as the program opens.

If your application is successful, you will receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan, allowing you to claim 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. These 600 points virtually guarantee that you will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence in the next Express Entry draw.

The most recent Express Entry draw took place today, January 10, 2018, and the minimum required CRS score to receive an ITA was 446. In fact, with the exception of some program-specific draws, the minimum required CRS has not surpassed 600 points since the first few draws of 2015!
