As Job offer is not required from a Saskatchewan employer for eligibility for either Express Entry or the In-Demand Occupation sub-category, so the selection process for both the sub-categories is based on an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Therefore, applicants willing to be considered by Saskatchewan under any of these two sub-categories need to initially create their EOI profile. This reflects information like education, work experience, proficiency in English/French, and other factors.
