SINP issued 344 invitations under Express Entry subcategory and 197 invitations under Occupation-in-demand subcategory to candidates having experience in specific occupations.

Examples of occupations that were invited in this draw include advertising and marketing managers, Biologists and related scientists, electrical and electronic engineers, technologists and technicians, data scientists and sales managers etc.

Candidate Selection

All invited candidates had Educational Credential Assessments.

Only those candidates who submit EOI’s before the date of SINP EOI selection draw are eligible for that selection. EOIs which are submitted on the day of the selection are not eligible.

This is the largest SINP draw of the year 2021. Saskatchewan has issued highest number of invitations in a single day so far this year.

Saskatchewan limits candidates’ selection by occupation so that only the nominees with positive employment prospects in Saskatchewan are selected, and nominations do not exceed employment demand.

The SINP application inventory’s needs help determine the frequency and size of Expression Of Interest (EOI) Selections. Selections take place on a bi-monthly basis, at minimum.


If you are eligible under the Occupations In-Demand or Express Entry, you will be able to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). Submitting an EOI is the first step to applying to the SINP.

Successful candidates receive Saskatchewan provincial nomination and are awarded an bonus 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score at the federal level and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

SINP Express entry and and SINP Occupation-in-demand are ideal pathways to gain entry into Canada and becoming a permanent resident.
