The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, or SINP, allows the province to nominate qualified foreign workers who have the potential to thrive in Saskatchewan to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
It is also one of the easiest Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) to apply. While a minimum of one year of full-time work experience is essential to apply for both of its subcategories – Express Entry and Occupation in Demand, a job offer or work experience in Canada is not required to be eligible.
In order to apply for a provincial nomination through either of these streams, candidates need to first register an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the SINP.
Eligible EOIs are then awarded a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid, which allot them points based on their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province. High-scoring candidates are then invited to apply for provincial nomination through regular draws conducted by the SINP.
Express Entry candidates, who obtain a nomination through the SINP’s Express Entry sub-category, receive additional 600 points toward their CRS scores, effectively increasing their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
Invited candidates now have 60 days to submit their complete application for provincial nomination to SINP.
SINP has now issued a total of 1,764 ITAs for provincial nominations in 2020.
