Highlights of the Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program
Candidates willing to immigrate through the Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program have two options as per the fulfillment of eligibility criteria.
Submitting an Expression-of-Interest (EOI) involves providing the eligibility details and getting a specific score. The candidate’s selection for the invitation to apply for permanent residency depends upon the score.
Saskatchewan aligns its enhanced nomination program with the federal Express Entry system through the enhanced sub-category. A nomination grants additional 600 points to the Express Entry candidates.
