A total of 532 invitations were issued to the Occupations In-Demand candidates. The remaining 211 invitations were issued to the candidates in Express-Entry Sub-category. The express entry immigration sub-category is linked with the Federal Express Entry System that allows the nomination of eligible candidates for Permanent Residency.
The candidates interested in applying under the express entry subcategory must have work experience in a high-skilled occupation, among other criteria. The occupation must be listed in the In-Demand Occupations List of Saskatchewan.
The minimum score required for both the immigration sub-categories is 61. No job offer from a Saskatchewan’s employer is required for eligibility.
The Occupations In-Demand sub-category doesn’t require an express entry profile for eligibility.

The express entry candidates will get extra 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score on receiving a provincial nomination. It will assure an invitation to apply for Canada permanent residence.
Saskatchewan uses the EOI System to select candidates from the immigration subcategories mentioned above. Interested candidates under this EOI system can create a profile that includes information like education, language proficiency in French/English, work experience, and other factors.
Candidates’ profile will get a score by the information they provided, and the highest ranked candidates will get an invitation through regular draws.
