SINP EOI based Selection draws of OID and Express Entry subcategory

Saskatchewan has implemented the EOI (Expression of Interest) based system for its OID and Express Entry subcategory. The applicants submit the EOIs mentioning their age, education, work experience, etc. Subsequently, they get selected based on the point they score in the Saskatchewan’s own Point Assessment grid.

Later, SINP periodically opens the EOI based draws for OID and express entry subcategory to select the suitable candidates and issue them an invitation to apply for provincial nomination. When applicants submit the application (along with the documents) on receiving the invitation to apply from SINP, the PNP assess the received application and nominate the selected ones for Canadian permanent residency.

As per the recent update from SINP, more than 200 occupations are eligible for the both Express Entry and Occupation in Demand (OID) subcategories of the Saskatchewan PNP.

Hence, if you wish to apply Canada PR this year, both above subcategories can provide you with a pivotal pathway to obtain the same.
