Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-category Opened Up With Expanded In-Demand Occupation List

The sub-category of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) that is the International Skilled Worker – Express Entry has re-opened with a bigger list of 43 in-demand occupations.

This sub-category is aligned with the Express Entry immigration selection system of the federal government of Canada.

Candidates who are already there in the Express Entry pool and have a minimum of one year of experience in any of the occupation mentioned in the list than they will be able to submit an application under the SINP for provincial nomination.

This will enable them to obtain an additional 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). It will ultimately place them in a better position to be granted the Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool to be able to apply for permanent residency of Canada.

A couple of distinct features about the SINP International Skilled Worker – Express Entry sub-category is that applicants are not required to have a job offer in order to apply for this program.

It is expected that during this intake period nearly 600 new applications will be accepted.

The New In-Demand Occupation List

Immigration aspirants will be pleased to note that nearly 20 occupation from the nearly 43 in-demand occupation list do not require any particular type of professional licensure.

Some form of professional licensure is required for the remaining 23 in-demand occupation list.

17 such occupations were there in the previous list.

This means that some candidates in the Express Entry pool who were not eligible to apply for the SINP sub-category can do so comfortably.

Some of the requirements that a candidate must fulfill in order to apply for SINP includes:

  • Have a proof of legal status that the candidate is currently present in Canada
  • Have a job seeker validation code and an Express Entry profile number
  • Score at least 60 points on the SINP point assessment grid out of 100
