Canada | PR Visa | PNP – Saskatchewan PNP draw: 252 Candidates invited

Saskatchewan has conducted PNP draw on May 28, 2020. This is the first after two months. The last draw was conducted on March 26th.  SINP invited candidates with work experience in 44 in-demand occupations. 

This is Saskatchewan's first Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw since Canada closed its borders to non-essential travel. The previous draw on March 26 was for in-demand Occupations candidates only.


The SINP uses the EOI system to pick the candidates in the prairie province with the most potential to succeed. Applicants need to demonstrate their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan by demonstrating their work experience, educational qualifications, language skills, age and provincial ties.


These five criteria are used by the SINP to test applicants and assign them a score of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Evaluation System. The highest-scoring candidates then receive an invitation to apply for a Saskatchewan provincial nomination.
