Saskatchewan Express Entry

Saskatchewan Express Entry

The province of Saskatchewan has reopened its International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) and will accept up to 600 new applications. This sub-category allows eligible candidates in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry pool to obtain 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the pool.

This is the first time since February that this sub-category has been open for new applications. The February intake quota of 500 new applications filled within a day, testament to the popularity of this program and Saskatchewan as an immigration destination.

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 therefore includes 17 occupations.
