Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program
Saskatchewan is a province in the very center of Canada that has a booming economy thanks to an abundance of minerals, oil, natural gas, and potash. With friendly communities, a reasonable cost of living, plenty of jobs, and more sunshine each year than any other Canadian province, Saskatchewan is an extremely popular destination for new Canadians to settle.
Through this program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a Saskatchewan provincial nomination certificate, after which they can apply for Canadian permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) allows the province to nominate people to be admitted to Canada by the Federal Government that has the skills and experience most desired in the local economy. In addition to helping people who have the precise skills that are in high demand locally, the Saskatchewan PNP also helps people who currently live and work in Saskatchewan, or who have a desire to invest in or begin a business in the province.
The Saskatchewan immigration process through the SINP allows qualified individuals and families to bypass the potentially more difficult and complicated process of immigrating by applying directly to the Canadian government. Foreign nationals can immigrate to Saskatchewan through the SINP in two different ways.
The first option is to apply directly to the Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program by sending the program an Expression of Interest or EOI.
If nominated, the prospective immigrant can then create a new Express Entry profile and import their credentials into the system.
