With the intent of ensuring strong economic outcomes and long-term retention in Saskatchewan, the province recently aborted its old first come first serve model and introduced a new Express Entry model also known as Expression of Interest system (EOI). This new system launched in July has opened the new doors of opportunities for many qualified applicants who couldn’t get their applications on time.

The new Expression of Interest system has issued its first invitations to Express Entry candidates. To make oneself eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry Programme, the aspiring candidate must register an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the SINP.  Post the registration, they are accredited with a ranking score out of 100 based on different criteria such as their work experience, their educational qualification, their language proficiency etc.

To be eligible for the SINP’s Express Entry, one must fulfill the following conditions:

  • A score of at least 60 points out of 100 on the SINP’s points assessment grid;
  • Post-secondary education, training or apprenticeship of at least one year in length that resulted in a diploma, certificate or degree.
  • Degrees and diplomas obtained outside Canada must be accompanied by an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) from a designated organization.
  • Should have work experience in a high-skilled occupation in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) that is designated Skill Type O, Skill Level A or Skill Level B and is found on Saskatchewan’s In-Demand Occupations List.
  • Candidates must show proof of professional status or licensure for regulated occupations or those with professional certification standards in Canada and/or Saskatchewan if required by their occupation.
