Please see the bottom of the page for more information on EOI selections that occurred on January 21, 2021.
Only active/submitted EOIs submitted before the date the EOI selection occurs will be eligible for that selection. EOIs submitted on the day of the selection will not be eligible.
An International Skilled Worker EOI submission is not an application to the SINP. It is a pre-application which allows you to fill out an online form to indicate your interest in applying to the SINP and show your qualifications.
The information asked for is used to assess your eligibility. It determines if your submission is entered into the International Skilled Worker EOI system.
Those who have skills needed by Saskatchewan's job market are selected from the International Skilled Worker EOI system. These include connections to the province, work experience, and language proficiency. Those selected from the system are issued an "Invitation to Apply."
Not all candidates who submit an International Skilled Worker EOI will be invited to apply to the SINP. There are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an EOI; however, candidates can only have one EOI profile.
After creating your EOI profile you will be asked:
If you successfully submit an EOI, you will be entered into the EOI pool of eligible candidates.
For frequently asked questions relating to this EOI system, see the Immigration FAQs for more information.
The SINP may limit the selection of EOIs by occupation so that applications do not exceed employment demand in Saskatchewan. For information regarding Saskatchewan's employment demand, visit our Labour Market Information page.
Those who complete an Expression of Interest profile automatically receive a score based on a number of criteria. You can find the criteria for the EOI point score in the SINP point assessment grid.
The SINP's Expression of Interest selection process will use a sequence that begins by identifying those with the highest point scores. If too many candidates have the same point score to meet the EOI Draw's desired number of candidates, then further selection criteria will be applied.
To select from those with equal scores, candidates with connections to Saskatchewan will be chosen first. This includes people who have a close family relative in Saskatchewan, past work experience in Saskatchewan, or past student experience in Saskatchewan. The next selection criteria will prioritize those with the most work experience and highest language scores.
The SINP may make occupation-specific selections from the EOI system
The criteria for eligibility and selection can change at any time. You will not be invited to apply unless your job or work experience is in-demand.
EOIs are drawn from the system and those selected receive an Invitation to Apply. The number of invitations issued in each draw depends on annual processing targets and employment demands.
If you are invited to apply, your invitation will tell you what to do next. You will have 60 days to submit a complete online application to the SINP and provide documents. If your invitation has expired, you can submit a new profile which may be eligible for future EOI Draws.
If you provide false or misleading information in your EOI, it may be considered misrepresentation. Your application could be refused and you may be banned from applying to the SINP for a period of two years.
Your EOI will remain active for one year from the date you originally created it. After it expires, you will have to create a new EOI to still be active in the system.
While your EOI is active, you can continue to update your profile with new information. For example, you can improve your score and increase your chances of receiving an invitation by:
After receiving an invitation to apply to either the Occupations In-Demand or Saskatchewan Express Entry, you will be required to pay a non-refundable $350 CAD application processing fee.

SINP limits the selection of EOIs by occupation so nominations do not exceed employment demand.
The size and frequency of EOI Selections are based on labour market need; provincial priorities, and the number of applications processed since the last EOI Selection. Selections will take place every two months, at a minimum.
