Check your Eligibility
Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a way to immigrate to Canada. With a provincial nomination, your chances of getting Canada PR get increased. A minimum of 80/110 is needed to be eligible under SINP.
SINP seeks applications under the four categories of – International Skilled Worker Category, Saskatchewan Experience Category, Entrepreneur Category, and Farm Category.
1. International Skilled Worker Category
Skilled workers from outside Canada can apply for opportunities under this category. The province of Saskatchewan will select candidates to nominate for immigration if they have the skilled work experience any one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations under this category.
2. Saskatchewan Experience Category
This category allows foreign nationals who are already living and working in Saskatchewan aspiring to become permanent residents to apply. This program is further divided into several streams.
3. Entrepreneur and Farm Category
This category is for those wanting to start a business in the province or wishing to own or operate a farm in Saskatchewan.
An application under any of these categories requires meeting the eligibility requirements.
Application to the SINP is a two-step process.
You must first submit an Expression of Interest to SINP in the first step. Using the SINP points evaluation grid, you will be given a score out of 110 points based on your qualifications. To be considered you need to score at least 80 out of 110 points. Candidates with the highest scores are eligible to submit a SINP application.
In the second stage, you must file an official provincial nomination application. If your application is approved, you can apply for your permanent resident status directly to the Canadian government.
Factors that are assessed include –
[I] Labor Market Success – maximum of 80 points
[II] Connection to Saskatchewan Labor Market & Adaptability – maximum of 30 points
For calculating eligibility – Factor I + Factor II = 110
