Saskatchewan, the vibrant Canadian province known for its welcoming atmosphere and robust business opportunities, recently hosted the latest draw for the Entrepreneur category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) on the 2nd of November, 2023. The draw, a pivotal event for aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to establish or partner in a business in Saskatchewan, saw the issuance of 13 coveted Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for provincial nomination. This development marks a significant stride for individuals looking to embark on an entrepreneurial journey in the promising landscapes of Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan PNP’s innovative approach to candidate selection operates through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system, a preliminary stage that precedes the official application process. The EOI serves as a conduit for expressing interest in the SINP, allowing prospective entrepreneurs to provide comprehensive insights into their backgrounds, assets, and a meticulously crafted Business Establishment Plan (BEP).
Eligible applicants, upon meeting the stringent criteria, find themselves welcomed into the EOI candidate pool, where their submissions are evaluated, scored, and subsequently ranked using the Points Grid. This systematic evaluation ensures a fair and transparent selection process, enabling the most promising entrepreneurs to proceed to the next phase of the application process.
The Entrepreneur EOI Selection Results on November 2, 2023, exemplify the precision and thoroughness of the SINP’s candidate assessment. With 13 Invitations Issued, the province demonstrated its commitment to nurturing a diverse entrepreneurial landscape. The statistical overview further revealed an Average EOI Score of 130, with the highest score reaching an impressive 155 and the lowest-achieving a commendable 115, underlining the program’s inclusivity and support for a broad spectrum of entrepreneurial endeavors.
Diving deeper into the essence of the SINP’s Entrepreneur Category, it becomes evident that the program has been intricately designed to cater to the aspirations of individuals hailing from diverse corners of the globe. The category welcomes those with a fervent desire to spearhead or collaborate in a business venture within Saskatchewan while actively participating in its management and contributing to the province’s economic fabric.
The nomination process for the Entrepreneur Category comprises four pivotal steps, each meticulously crafted to ensure a comprehensive yet streamlined journey for aspiring entrepreneurs:
- Submission of an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the SINP: The initial step sets the foundation for a potential entrepreneurial venture, enabling candidates to express their keen interest in the Saskatchewan business landscape.

The subsequent issuance of invitations initiates the formal application process, marking a significant milestone for the candidates on their entrepreneurial voyage.

This active involvement in business operations further solidifies the candidate’s commitment to the provincial economy and community.
