Job Offer

All candidates through this stream must have an offer of employment from a Saskatchewan employer for a position at National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B or in a designated trade. To be considered valid, an offer of employment must be supported by a Letter of Offer from the employer, as well as a Job Approval Letter from SINP. In order to obtain a job approval letter, a candidate’s employer must register online using the SINP Online Portal. The employer must submit the position for assessment by SINP. If SINP approves the position, the employer will receive an official Job Approval Letter.

Language Proficiency

This stream requires candidates to demonstrate proof of English or French language proficiency. All candidates must have valid language test scores showing proficiency equivalent to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Level 4 or higher. Work Experience Candidates must demonstrate they have at least 12-months of work experience obtained within the previous 10 years in the same occupation as the employment offer. If the occupation is regulated in Saskatchewan, candidates must generally have the licensing or certification required to perform that profession in Saskatchewan. Points Assessment Grid Saskatchewan Employment Offer requires that all candidates have scored a minimum of 60 points on the SINP Points Assessment Grid. Settlement Funds Candidates must meet the settlement funds requirement as determined by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This can be demonstrated through their own finances, or through maintaining a valid offer of employment.

Application Procedure

The Saskatchewan Employment Offer stream accepts applications from eligible candidates at all times. Eligible candidates may submit an application using the SINP Online Portal. This program does not have an application fee. If the province approves the application, Saskatchewan will notify the applicant that they have been selected for provincial nomination. This notification will be sent to the applicant by email. At this point, the applicant officially receives a provincial nomination, making them eligible to submit a federal application for Canadian permanent residence. After receiving a provincial nomination an applicant has six months to submit their permanent residency application. Applicants in this program must complete and submit a paper-based application for permanent residence and submit it by mail to the appropriate application centre. Paper-based PNP applications for permanent residence are generally processed within 18 months.

SINP Points Assessment Grid

The SINP Points Assessment Grid is out of 100 points. In order to be eligible for the program a candidate must score a minimum of 60 points. Please note that candidates will be required to submit supporting documentation with their SINP application demonstrating that they have met the 60 point requirement.
