SINP Points Assessment Grid: International Skilled Worker

SINP Points Assessment Grid- International Skilled Worker

International Skilled Worker Category

The International Skilled Worker (ISW) category is for skilled workers living abroad who want to work and live in the province of Saskatchewan. There are three sub-categories that international skilled workers may apply for under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

The three sub-categories are:
  1. Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer
  2. This category is for skilled workers who:
    • have a job offer letter in hand for a skilled occupation in Saskatchewan;
    • live in a foreign country or in Canada itself;
    • and lastly, meet the criteria of this category.
  3. Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand
  4. This category is for skilled workers who:
    • do not hold an offer letter in hand from a company based in Saskatchewan, but is highly skilled in an occupation in-demand;
    • live in a foreign country or in Canada itself; and
    • meet the criteria of this category.
  5. Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker: Express Entry
  6. This category is for skilled workers who:
    • do not hold an offer letter in Saskatchewan;
    • live in a foreign country or in Canada itself;
    • meet the criteria of this category; and
    • are in the IRCC Express Entry pool.

There are several factors for calculating your eligibility for the SINP. These include age, language skills, educational qualifications, skilled work experience and connection to the Saskatchewan labor market.

International Skilled Worker Expression of Interest (EOI)

The Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker EOI provides the opportunity to link foreign-trained workers with Saskatchewan employers. This EOI is just the same as any other SINP EOI. It is not a direct application to the SINP. It is a pre-application form that you have to fill out online to show your interest in working in Saskatchewan. The information provided in the form is used to evaluate your eligibility. It determines if your submission is entered into the International Skilled Worker EOI system. Those who have the required skills will be selected from the International Skilled Worker EOI system and issued an Invitation to Apply.

Candidates can only have one EOI profile and not all candidates who submit an EOI will be invited to apply for SINP.

In order to create an EOI profile, you must first register and create an account on the SINP’s online application system, OASIS.

How many points do you need for the Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker program?

You must score a minimum of 60 points out of 110 on the SINP point assessment grid to be eligible for the Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker program.

How SINP points are calculated?

The points for the EOI profile are calculated based on several factors such as age, language skills, educational qualifications, skilled work experience and connection to the Saskatchewan labor market. SINP uses these points to rank the candidates in the EOI system and the candidates with the highest score will be issued an Invitation to Apply.

SINP Point Assessment Grid

There are different score points to identify a candidate’s eligibility for the SINP International Skilled Worker Category. Candidates are required to score a minimum of 60 out of 110 points on the Points Assessment Grid in order to be eligible for nomination. A candidate can claim the points only once for each section. Points that are claimed will be confirmed by the documents that are submitted later.

Points are awarded on the basis of these five selection factors.
