- Invitations: 272
- Minimum score: 68
In addition to the minimum points score, applicants who receive an invitation under the Express Entry sub-category must also be able to demonstrate work experience in one of 47 occupations that the SINP is targeting.
What makes SINP unique
What makes the SINP a really interesting provincial nominee program is that the two main streams of immigration do not require a job offer or experience in the province. Close connections to Saskatchewan do increase your overall point total, but if you have a strong enough profile, you can still be eligible to apply.
I received an invitation, what comes next?
You will have 60 days to submit a complete online application to the SINP and provide supporting documents. The documents that they require are similar to documents needed to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
You will need to demonstrate you have sufficient funds to support your relocation to Saskatchewan. This comes in the form of bank statements confirming these funds are available to you. For a single individual, the amount of funds you need is $12,669. For a family of four, this amount is $23,542.
You will also need to provide language test results, educational credential assessments, as well as work experience and identity documents.
A processing fee of $350 will also need to be included in your application. This fee is in addition to any fees you will need to pay to process your application for permanent residence.
