For the first time in more than three months, Saskatchewan has reopened its popular International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Up to 600 new applications will be accepted during this intake. In reopening this sub-category, Saskatchewan offers eligible candidates in the Federal Express Entry pool a way of obtaining an enhanced provincial nomination certificate.
A nomination certificate through this sub-category gives the candidate 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and that candidate will then be in line for selection at a subsequent draw from the pool.
The SINP targets prospective immigrants with the skills and experience needed to respond to Saskatchewan’s labor market needs. As candidates for the Express Entry sub-category must be in the Express Entry pool, all candidates must be eligible for one of the three federal economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, or the Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates should note that there has been a slight change in the list of eligible occupations for this sub-category. Whereas previously there were 21 occupations listed, the province has updated the list and four occupations are no longer listed. The current list contains 17 occupations.
