SINP launches new tech immigration program

SINP launched the new Tech Talent Pathway under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to attract tech workers to the province.

The Tech Talent Pathway aims to alleviate critical labor shortages in Saskatchewan’s tech sector. With this new pathway to permanent residency for technology workers, employers in Saskatchewan’s technology and innovation sectors will be able to attract more talent to support growth and increase Saskatchewan’s global competitiveness.

“As Saskatchewan emerges from the impacts of the global pandemic, our technology sector will be an important engine of economic growth,” Immigration and Skills Minister Jeremy Harrison said in a news release. “The new Tech Talent Pathway provides our Saskatchewan employers with a dedicated stream to attract highly skilled talent to our burgeoning tech sector.”

This new stream will make the immigration process easier and faster for technology workers already working in Saskatchewan, as well as those recruited from outside Canada.

“SaskTech’s economy is built on our ability to attract and retain highly skilled immigrants who are critical anchors of specialized skills in our communities and workforce,” said SaskTech President, Dr. Aaron Genest, in the press release. “The Tech Talent Pathway provides a competitive advantage to Saskatchewan industries and is unique in Canada. It streamlines the immigration process and recognizes that we want our immigrants to stay right here in our province to join us in creating innovative solutions for Saskatchewan to export to the world.

To be eligible, candidates for the Tech Talent Pathway must have:

  • An employer-specific SINP Job Approval Letter for an eligible technology sector occupation;
  • A minimum official language level of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 5 if the applicant is not working in Saskatchewan when they apply or CLB level 7 if applying for Express Entry;
  • at least one-year of work experience in that occupation in the past five years; or six months working in Saskatchewan;
  • post-secondary education; and
  • be eligible for Saskatchewan professional licensing (applicable to eligible computer, software, electrical and electronics engineers).

The federal government, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sets the number of nominations the SINP can make each year. No application is guaranteed to be nominated, says the SINP.
