Saskatchewan immigration invited a total of 646 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in a new draw held on February 13.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) sent out the invitations to candidates in its two popular categories – the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand.


Out of the total 646 invites issued, 277 went to the Express Entry category candidates while the remaining 369 invites were issued to candidates under the Occupations In-Demand category.

The February 13th SINP draw was almost three times larger than the previous draw, which was conducted on January 13 and invited 234 applicants.

Category Total Candidates Invited to Apply Score of Lowest Ranked Candidate to Apply
Express Entry 277 70
Occupations In-Demand 369 70


Candidates received invitations to apply in February 13 draw represent 107 occupations  including human resource professionals; Insurance, real estate and financial brokerage managers and financial sales representatives, among others.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified foreign workers for Canadian permanent residence.

Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories are most popular streams within the SINP as these do not require candidate to have a job offer in Saskatchewan. In order to apply for a provincial nomination through either of these streams, candidates need to first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the SINP.

Eligible EOIs are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. High-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the SINP.

Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.

Invited candidates now have 60 days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to SINP.
