What is the fastest way of migrating to Saskatchewan?

What is Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program 2019 (SINP)?

Saskatchewan is growing fast and thus needs skilled workforce that can reside permanently and thus contribute effectively towards its growth. Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program 2019 (SINP) floats ‘Invitation to Apply’ for PR to attraction – Canadian skilled labor, agriculturists, young businessmen, and students to apply for Canadian residency and settle in Saskatchewan. This is also applicable to applicants that may not have employment offers. It then nominates the approved candidates to the federal government, to allow you gain Canadian PR.

This works outside the Express Entry system of the Federal Govt. and thus you can submit an application for getting nominated for PR from Saskatchewan without creating a profile at Express Entry system. With your application, you enter the pool and await an Invitation to apply (ITA) via a draw.

Aimed towards helping aspiring immigrants with the requisite skill set and experience, SINP enables you to gain the Saskatchewan Provincial Nomination Certificate. This certificate authorizes you to apply for Permanent Residence in Canada. SINP brings to the immigration aspirants many categories through which you can work towards getting your PR.

Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program 2019 doesn’t only work towards helping skilled workforce get Canadian PR but also works as a catalyst for meeting the demand – supply gap of the skill set desired to keep the Saskatchewan economy booming.

SINP offers many streams under which a candidate may apply. Two such streams are aimed at applicants that have work experience in the ‘in-demand’ occupations of the province. These are:

  • Saskatchewan ISW – Express Entry sub – category: Under this stream of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) you need to have an active profile on Express Entry system along with experience in any of the ‘in-demand’ occupations listed by the province.
  • Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand sub-category: If you are not eligible under the Express Entry system, don’t lose heart. Under this stream, you do not need to have an active profile at Express Entry. Although, you would still need to show valid experience in any of the occupations ‘in-demand’ by the province. You need not have a job offer in hand!

In 2019, new updates have come in and many changes have been made to the Saskatchewan immigration program, SINP 2019.

Out of the ISW EOI candidates, 853 were given an Invitation to Apply under Express Entry category and Occupation in-Demand category. Also, 359 applicants scoring at least 60 CRS marks were invited under Express Entry linked system. In Occupation in-Demand category 494 candidates with at least 63 CRS were invited.
