I am very interested in the Saskatchewan Immigration Nomination Program (SINP). I have known that there are 1000 quota assigned to Express Entry from your government website. I noticed that there is a requirement set for this type of nomination that the applicant “must be accepted into CIC’s Express Entry pool have an Express Entry Profile Number and Job Seeker Validation Code”. Does this mean that I have to meet the requirements prescribed for one of the three economic immigration programs (i.e., Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Express Class) by CIC? Since I am now outside Canada and have several years of work experience in China which belong to NOC 0AB class, my circumstance seems to be more eligible for FSW program. Besides, my work experience is also considered to be in-demand in Saskatchewan, according to the online Application Guide (Appendix A). I am writing to inquire whether I am requested not only to score a minimum of 60 out of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid but also score a minimum of 67 out of 100 on the CIC FSW point assessment grid, in order to be qualified for the application of the Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-Category program.
Thank you very much for your kind help! I am looking forward to your reply.
Thank you for your email.
This is correct, you must qualify for one of the three federal categories you listed below.
