All about Saskatchewan's Express Entry and the occupations-in-demand sub-categories
The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) that is linked to the federal Express Entry system and allows applicants from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) to apply for provincial nomination.
To be eligible for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination, candidates with Express Entry profiles must additionally build EOI profiles for Saskatchewan. It assures them the opportunity to seek for permanent residency in Canada.
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is a basic PNP, which means it is available to immigration candidates who do not have an Express Entry profile. Foreign nationals must build an EOI profile using the SINP's online application system in order to apply for Canadian immigration through this sub-category.
