SINP- In demand occupation list 2020

SINP Overview

The Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand sub-category is not aligned with the federal Express Entry system. Consequently, successful applicants can apply directly to the Canadian government for permanent resident status, and do not need to create an Express Entry profile, or receive an invitation to apply (ITA) in an Express Entry draw, in order to apply.

  • Saskatchewan considers high-skilled work experience to be any work experience obtained at National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B.
  • Potential candidates may be outside Canada, or in Canada with legal status, and a job offer is not required.
  • Saskatchewan Occupations In-Demand sub-category operates with the SINP Expression of Interest (EOI) system. Similar to Express Entry, candidates must first submit an EOI which is ranked using a points system. Then, invitations are periodically issued to the highest ranked candidates.

  • Show proof of Professional Status or Licensure (for regulated occupations or those with professional certification standards in Canada and/or Saskatchewan) if required for your occupation (up-to-date certification standards can be downloaded from Saskatchewan’s website); and
  • Demonstrate settlement funds and a settlement plan.
  • SINP Points Assessment Grid
  • Potential applicants can create a profile in the SINP online system OASIS. Upon completing your profile, you will be assigned a points score out of 100 based on the following factors. Candidates need to score at least 60 points in order to be able to submit an EOI. However, meeting a minimum of 60 points does not guarantee that you will receive an invitation to apply. Candidates in the pool are ranked according to their scores out of 100, and the highest-ranking candidates will receive an invitation when Saskatchewan immigration authorities conduct a draw from the pool of SINP skilled worker candidates.

The SINP reviews each application and informs the applicant whether he or she is eligible for nomination, or not. Nominated candidates can then apply directly to the Canadian government for permanent resident status.
