On July 21, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) conducted a new Expression of Interest (EOI) draw – issuing invitations to 802 immigrants. The province’s occupation in-demand and Express Entry streams, which targeted 18 National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes, invited 797 candidates. Saskatchewan also invited 5 candidates from Ukraine in direct response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
797 invitations were issued from the Express Entry with specific NOC codes, with a minimum score of 68. Not all occupations were selected. The occupations selected and eligible for the EOI selection in this SINP draw, have the following NOC codes: 2171, 0621, 6221, 2281, 2263, 0711, 2282, 6211, 0631, 3212, 2234, 3219, 3237, 0632, 8252, 6312, 3217, 3214.
5 candidates whose current country of residence is Ukraine were also invited as a special measure in response to the current conflict. Candidates invited required a minimum score of 60.
The size and frequency of Saskatchewan PNP next draw will be determined by the needs of the SINP application inventory. Selections will take place on a bi-monthly basis, at a minimum. The dates of the selections will not be posted before they take place.
Launched back in 1998, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is designed to help address economic and labor market shortages through immigration to the province.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program has achieved immense success since its inception, where 7 out of every 10 newcomers to Saskatchewan, immigrate under the SINP. Canada’s Breadbasket Saskatchewan also boasts high employment rates (73%), and even higher retention rates (85%) of newcomers choosing to stay back in the province.
Saskatchewan is a popular destination for immigrants, and the provincial government offers quick and easy immigration pathways to study, work, and settle in the province. At present, if you want to immigrate to Saskatchewan – you have four options to choose from:
The first step to applying under the SINP is to identify which category you would be eligible for. Once you’re done with this, you need to check your application process for your chosen category. In some cases, you would be required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). You will be issued a point score in the Saskatchewan PNP points calculator, based on the answers you’ve provided in your EOI. Candidates with the highest scores are invited to apply under the SINP on a bi-monthly draw.
