New Fee for Saskatchewan Express Entry and Occupations In Demand

As of April 1, 2017, applicants to two popular immigration streams of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) will be required to pay an application fee of $300 CAD when submitting the application. The fee will be mandatory for applicants to the International Skilled Worker: Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category and the International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand sub-category.

Both of these SINP sub-categories have opened for new applications on numerous occasions since they were introduced in 2015. Typically, intake quotas for these streams fill within a few days, or even hours on occasion.

These sub-categories target newcomers who have work experience in an in-demand occupation. Moreover, no job offer is required for either sub-category.

SINP International Skilled Worker: Express Entry

Through this enhanced sub-category, eligible candidates in the federal Express Entry pool may apply for a provincial nomination certificate from Saskatchewan. A provincial nomination certificate through this sub-category gives the candidate 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and that candidate will then be in line for selection at a subsequent draw from the pool.

SINP International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand

This base sub-category is for skilled workers who have experience in one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations. Applications to this sub-category are processed outside the Express Entry system.
