An application to the Saskatchewan In-Demand Occupations stream represents an entirely separate application from submitting an application for permanent residence, if you receive an invitation to do so.
Due to the popularity of the program, and the limited number of applications that are accepted, this stream usually closes quickly. Therefore, it’s important to prepare your application well in advance, so you’re prepared to submit as soon as the program opens.
If your application is successful, you will receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan. With a Provincial Nomination, you will be eligible to submit an official application for permanent residence. For this program, the final application will be submitted through a paper-based application mailed directly to IRCC.
