Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category for Canadian Immigration Reopens

By  Editor
Updated April 03 2023

The Canadian province of Saskatchewan has announced that the reopening of its ‘International Skilled Worker – Express Entry’ sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Up to 500 further applications will be accepted, and the category has reopened with immediate effect.

This sub-category enables the SINP to nominate individuals in Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s Express Entry pool and who have the education, skilled work experience, language ability and other factors to help them to successfully establish and integrate into Saskatchewan’s labour market and communities.

A successful nomination through this stream will result in successful applicants being awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) at a subsequent draw from the pool. This sub-category first opened in June, 2015, but capped out soon afterward.

Located in the Prairie region of Western Canada, Saskatchewan is one of Canada's most economically stable provinces. Successful candidates and their families will obtain Canadian permanent residence, with the government of Canada aiming to process applications within six months of a complete application being submitted at the federal stage. As candidates are selected by the province from the federal Express Entry pool, all candidates must be eligible for one of the federal economic immigration programs:

• Federal Skilled Worker

• Federal Skilled Trades

• Canadian Experience Class

The SINP Express Entry sub-category has a points assessment grid that is unique to the SINP. Moreover, though a job offer is not necessarily required in order for eligible applicants to submit an application, candidates with work experience in one of 60 “in-demand” occupations are in a particularly good position to immigrate to Canada through this sub-category of the SINP.
