The Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry ranking score and are effectively fast-tracked for an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

In order to be considered for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan, Express Entry candidates must register a separate EOI with the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

An EOI profile requires information on education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and connections to the province, such as a close family member or past work or study experience in Saskatchewan, among other factors.

Express Entry candidates must have work experience in a high-skilled occupation found on Saskatchewan’s In-Demand Occupations List, among other eligibility criteria.

Profiles are awarded a score and those with 60 points or more are entered into the pool of candidates.

A set number of the highest-ranked are then issued invitations through regular draws.

The lowest-ranked candidate invited to apply for a provincial nomination in the February 27 draw had a score of 68.
