Saskatchewan’s Immigrant Nominee Program could be your path to Canadian permanent residence in 2019

The Canadian province of Saskatchewan nominates thousands of newcomers for immigration each year through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). With Canada pushing to accept the highest number of new immigrants in Canadian history, Saskatchewan’s immigration program could be your path to permanent residence in 2019.

The SINP International Skilled Worker category is a great option for skilled workers who are not living in Canada, but who are interested in immigrating. Through this stream, the province of Saskatchewan can select candidates to nominate for immigration if they have skilled work experience or experience in one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations.

Why Choose SINP?

For workers living overseas, two subcategories of the International Skilled Worker category should stand out. The Saskatchewan Express Entry, and Occupation In-Demand streams are a great option for those living outside Canada as they do not require any previous connection to the province of Saskatchewan, and do not require you to have a Canadian job offer to be invited.

Saskatchewan Express Entry: This stream requires applicants to have a profile created in the federal Express Entry system. As well, all applicants must have experience in one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations. If successful, a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan will gain an applicant an additional 600 points for their CRS score.

Occupation In-Demand: To apply under this sub-category, an applicant must have work experience in one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations. As well, applicants must have language proficiency equal to the Canadian Language Benchmark of Level 4 (CLB 4), and have completed a post-secondary program of at least one year in length. Notably, applicants in the occupation in-demand subcategory do not require an Express Entry profile.

How to Apply

Like many PNP’s, applying for these subcategories is a two-step process.

First, interested candidates must submit an Expression of Interest for SINP. Based on their qualifications, all candidates are given a score out of 100 points using the SINP points assessment grid. Periodically, SINP will invite the candidates with the highest scores to submit an official application to SINP.

Second, invited candidates must submit an official application for provincial nomination. If the application is approved, the applicant is officially nominated by Saskatchewan and can apply directly to the Canadian government for Canadian permanent resident status.

What can we expect in 2019?

Saskatchewan has started the year strong with just under 600 invitations to apply already issued this January. With Canada’s immigration targets steadily increasing each year, we can expect even more invitations being issued in 2019 than we have seen before. As well we can hope for even faster processing times as attracting more skilled workers to Canada remains a priority!
