About Canadian Prairie Province – Saskatchewan

The name ‘Saskatchewan’ is derived from an anglicized version of a word in the Cree language that stands for “swiftly flowing river”. Saskatchewan is one of the three Prairie Provinces of Canada. Alberta and Manitoba are the other two. With British Columbia entering the picture, the four provinces together form the Canadian Western Provinces. Bounded by the US states of Montana and North Dakota to the south, Saskatchewan has the Northwest territories sharing the border in the north. While Manitoba lies towards the east, Alberta makes up the neighboring Canadian province in the west.

“Regina is the capital city of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.”

The prominent cities in Saskatchewan include:

  • Prince Albert
  • Moose Jaw
  • Yorkton
  • Swift Current
  • North Battleford
  • Estevan
  • Weyburn
  • Melfort

As a part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), SINP Canada refers to the PNP of Saskatchewan, that is, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). An individual looking to migrate overseas to Canada and settle within Saskatchewan after acquiring their Canadian permanent residence would have to go through the Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program.
