If you work in intermediate and lower-skilled occupations in Saskatchewan, you can now apply for permanent residency through the Existing Work Permit stream of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

That’s right!

Saskatchewan has expanded its in-demand occupations list by an additional 279 occupations (TEER 4 and 5) - to meet its labor market shortages. Workers like retail sales staff, farm laborers, and more can stay in Saskatchewan permanently if they meet stream-specific and general eligibility of Saskatchewan PNP.

Earlier, only newcomers with skilled worker experience in occupations listed under TEER 0, 1, 2, or 3 along with designated trades were allowed to apply for permanent residency through the stream.
