What is Expression of Interest in SINP?

An Expression of Interest is a pre-application process in which applicants applying for OID and Express Entry streams are required to fill an online form mentioning the key information and interest of applying to SINP. The information must be filled in accordance with SINP criteria. The applicants having their profile in accordance with the Saskatchewan’s labour market are picked up through international skilled worker EOI system. The eligible applicant who score the maximum EOI points are then issued an “Invitation to Apply.” It is not necessary that every applicant in EOI pool would get an ITA from the province of Saskatchewan. An applicant must have at least one EOI profile to get considered for SINP permanent residency.

EOIs are drawn from the system and those selected receive an invitation to apply from SINP. The number of invitations however issued depends upon the employment requirement in the province. The eligible applicants are then given 60 days to submit a complete online application to the SINP and provide the supporting information you provided to the SINP in your EOI.
