How EOI Candidates Are Ranked?
Those who successfully complete an Expression of Interest profile automatically receive a score based on a number of criteria. You can find the criteria for the EOI point score in the SINP point assessment grid.
The SINP’s Expression of the Interest selection process will use a sequence that begins by identifying those with the highest point scores. If too many candidates have the same or equal point score to meet the EOI Draw’s desired number of candidates, then further selection criteria will be applied – connections to the province; work experience; and official language ability.
To select among those with equal scores, candidates with connections to Saskatchewan will be chosen first. These are people who receive points for having a close family relative in Saskatchewan; and/or past work experience in Saskatchewan; and/or past student experience in Saskatchewan. The next selection criterion will prioritize those with the highest number of years of work experience and highest language scores.
These factors all play a role in your future economic success in Saskatchewan. A goal of the EOI system is to ensure strong economic outcomes and long-term retention in Saskatchewan for those invited to apply.
The SINP may make occupation-specific selections from the EOI system, which means that only candidates with occupations chosen by the SINP will be invited to apply during that selection.
The criteria can change at any time regarding eligibility or the selection process for EOIs. EOIs that do not meet the criteria will not be selected. You will not be invited to apply unless your occupation is eligible and in-demand. For more information, please see the Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry Occupation Requirements page, as well as the Detailed Occupational Outlook currently being used by the SINP. If you received your invitation to apply prior to the removal of your occupation from the list, your application will still be accepted.
