|Subcategory||Total Invitations Issued||Minimum EOI Score|
Regardless of the stream, in order to receive an invitation in this draw, candidates were required to:
- have an Expression of Interest (EOI) score of at least 70
- work experience in one of the 61 in-demand occupations
- have obtained an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from a designated authority
Some of the eligible occupations that received invitations in this draw include medical laboratory technicians, utilities managers, and miners, among others.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified immigration candidates with skills required in its labour market. Express Entry and In-Demand Occupation sub-categories are two prominent streams within the SINP for individuals who have education and work experience in a high-skilled and in-demand occupation.
While a minimum of one year of full-time work experience is essential to apply for both of its subcategories, a job offer or work experience in Canada is not required.
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.
