Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program allows the province to nominate economic immigration candidates, who meet the specific labor market needs of the province, for permanent residence in Canada. Since 2007, Saskatchewan has welcomed more than 108,000 newcomers from 170 countries. As far as the province is concerned, immigration is a key driver of population and labour force in its region. In order to apply for provincial nomination under the Express Entry and Occupation In-Demand sub-categories of the SINP, a candidate must have work experience in one of the in-demand occupations of the province. However, candidates do not require a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer in order to apply. So far this year, Saskatchewan has issued 854 invitations through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category and 814 through its Express Entry sub-category.
The first step for a candidate to apply for provincial nomination through one of these categories is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) with the SINP. Each EoI profile is assigned a score out of 100 based on a number of eligibility factors such as education, skilled work experience and language proficiency. The highest scoring candidates are invited to apply for provincial nomination in the draws that are conducted regularly.
The Express Entry candidates nominated by Saskatchewan would receive 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score points that would guarantee them an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in the subsequent Express Entry draw. The Occupation In-Demand sub-category candidates nominated by SINP will have their applications processed outside the Express Entry system.
