The SINP is Saskatchewan’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a Saskatchewan Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will allow that foreign national to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The International Skilled Worker – Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category is now reopened to accept an additional 500 applications. This sub-category is for skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan and who are already in the federal Express Entry Pool. As this is an enhanced immigration stream, a successful nomination will result in applicants being awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) at a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool. This stream opened four times in 2015 and again in January, 2016; the sub-category typically fills its application intake quickly, often within a matter of days.
