  • you and or your representative have intentionally misrepresented yourselves in the application

Assessment Rating
You must score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 points on the Point Assessment Grid to be considered for nomination.
You are awarded points on the basis of five factors:

  • education and training
  • skilled work experience
  • language ability
  • age
  • connections to the Saskatchewan labor market and adaptability

You must attach documents to support the information for the eligibility criteria and points factors. For example, if you claim 20 points for having a university degree, you must attach a copy of your university degree and complete transcripts. If your degree is printed in a language other than English or French, you must also attach a translated version.
