Saskatchewan Expression of Interest (EOI) system to come into effect on July 16
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) will introduce an Expression of Interest(EOI) system with effect from July 16. The Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system will replace the first-come, first-served application model of accepting applications for its Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories.
Under the new Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system, a candidate will have to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile in order to be invited to apply for provincial nomination under the Express Entry or Occupations In-Demand sub-categories. The profile has to be created using Saskatchewan’s online application system ‘OASIS’. SINP will conduct regular draws from a pool of selected candidates. This new system will replace the occasional openings of sub-categories to accept applications that favor only those who submit applications first.
Saskatchewan Expression of Interest(EoI) system
Under the Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system, the candidate will have to fill an online form. Based on the information provided by the candidate in the form, their eligibility to apply for provincial nomination under either of the two concerned subcategories will be assessed and points will be awarded. The selection criteria include education, work experience, language proficiency and the candidate’s connections to Saskatchewan’s labor market. The candidate must have work experience in one of the occupations listed in Saskatchewan’s in-demand list.
The same point assessment grid that is used for the International Skilled Worker category will be applied for the Saskatchewan Expression of Interest system. In order to enter the EoI pool, the candidate will have to score a minimum 60 points out of 100. The candidates are ranked based on their score and the highest ranking candidates are invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws.
The candidates who receive the invitation must submit the complete application for provincial nomination within 60 days using the same log-in information for a candidate’s EOI profile. The candidates who obtain provincial nomination will receive 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.
