How does the SINP Skilled Worker Program Work?

Saskatchewan has two main streams of their Skilled Worker program: Occupations in Demand and Express Entry. These programs operate through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system. In other words, candidates must submit an EOI that is ranked by the province; subsequently, those with the highest ranking profiles are invited to apply for nomination.

Before submitting an EOI, candidates must first score a minimum of 60 points on the SINP points assessment grid. SINP ranks candidates on a variety of factors, including their work experience, education, language proficiency, and ties to the province.

Candidates that receive an invitation must submit a full application for nomination to the province.

Afterwards, successful candidates with a valid federal Express Entry profile may receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score. As a result, their subsequent permanent residence application may be eligible for expedited processing through the Express Entry system.

Successful candidates who have applied under the Occupations in Demand stream are invited to submit an non-Express Entry PNP permanent residence application. Unlike Express Entry, this application is generally subject to longer processing times.
