If you want to get a provincial nomination, you need to get 600 points towards a CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) and more. The score that you get will guarantee that you get an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada for the following round.
In order to get a nomination from the SINP, you do not have to have a job offer in place, unlike other places that do require this. You are however required to have relevant work experience. The experience that they have should be in line with the field that they studied for.

Candidates’ end score depends on a number of things such as education, age, proficiency in French or English, work experience, any connections they have to Saskatchewan, and others. The more experience you have and the higher your level of education, the higher your score will be. According to the SINP, a candidate’s occupation and EOI score were the two main factors that decided who was eligible to apply for a nomination.
The fact that there are so many immigrants coming into Saskatchewan from all over the world is why the country has such a fast-growing economy and population. This is why there are over 200 occupations available to apply for now in certain categories.
