Saskatchewan-Occupation-in-Demand

The Saskatchewan Occupation in-Demand stream of the SINP International Skilled Worker program does not require a job offer. However, you must be highly skilled and employable in an in-demand or popular occupation in the province of Saskatchewan.

Besides this, you must also fulfill all the eligibility requirements for this SINP ISW stream. This article includes details about eligibility requirements, mandatory documents, and all the steps to apply for provincial nomination through the Saskatchewan Occupation in-demand pathway.

Eligibility criteria for SINP Occupation in Demand pathway

EOI scoreJust like SINP Express Entry , a minimum score of 60 out of 110 points in the SINP assessment grid is mandatory. Your Expression of Interest will be scored based on six factors:
– Age – 12 points
– Education- 23 points
– Work Experience- 15 points
– Language Proficiency- 30 points
– Saskatchewan connection- 30 points
Language ProficiencyScore at least Canadian Language Benchmark or CLB 4. SINP accepts CELPIP and IELTS for English proficiency tests, and TEF and TCF for French proficiency tests. Moreover, depending upon your NOC code, the mandatory language aptitude might be higher than CLB 4. Your language test is valid for 2 years.
Academic QualificationYour education must be according to the academic requirements of your intended occupation. For example, if you are skilled in Financial management (NOC 10010), you must meet the educational requirements mentioned in the NOC 10010. Thus, it will be mandatory to have a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in business administration, economics or any other related field.
An ECA or Educational Credential Assessment is mandatory if you have acquired your education from a country other than Canada.

Step-by-Step Application to Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand Pathway

  1. Register and Create an Expression of Interest (EOI)

After submitting your Expression of Interest to the SINP online portal or OASIS, you will enter the EOI pool of eligible applicants. You will also get an EOI score based on the information submitted to the online portal.

You must score 60 out of 110 in the SINP assessment grid to be eligible for the Saskatchewan Occupation in-Demand pathway. SINP draws will issue ITAs or Invitation to Apply to suitable applicants from this EOI pool. 

  1. Getting an Invitation to Apply in SINP draw

If your EOI score is equal to or higher than the cut-off, you will get an ITA or Invitation to Apply in the SINP draws. 

  1. Applying to Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program 

After you get an ITA in SINP draws , apply for provincial nomination through the SINP Occupation In-Demand pathway. This is the phase where you will be required to upload all the mandatory documents and pay the non-refundable application fee of $350 CAD.

  1. Application Assessment and Provincial Nomination

After submission, your SINP application will undergo two phases. First, it will go through a pre-screening process that determines if your application is complete. After that, SINP will critically evaluate and assess your application based on the accuracy of the provided information.

If SINP requires any additional information, you will be informed via email. You will have 10 days to submit the required additional information. 

Once your application is assessed and approved, you will receive:

  • SINP Nomination Approval Letter
  • Further information to apply for Canada PR

You will have 6 months or 180 days after becoming a provincial nominee to apply to IRCC for Canada PR.
