SASKATCHEWAN PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM (SINP)
The Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program (SINP) allows the province to select immigration candidates that have the potential to thrive in the province.
To apply under SINP, Interested candidates needed to file an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile. Based on their EOI profiles, candidates are then assessed on how their education, work experience, language ability, age, and connections to Saskatchewan will help them to settle in the province. They are given a score out of 100 based on the SINP’s International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid.
The highest-scoring candidates are then issued invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws conducted by SINP.
The SINP has now invited a total 1969 so far this year through its both Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories. A total 1124 invites went to Occupations In-Demand candidates while the remaining 845 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination are issued to candidates through the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category.
