Why Choose Saskatchewan?

Province of Saskatchewan has a diverse and active immigration program that is a response to the province’s growing economy. Among the province of Canada, Saskatchewan has the highest economic growth that is mainly based on agriculture and mining industries. Following are some of the main reasons that can help you to choose Saskatchewan to live in as a PR visa holder:

  • Many Job Opportunities: Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rates at 3.9% with the national average for unemployment rate set at 7%
  • Higher Wage: Average salary in the province is around CAD $970, that is third highest in Canada
  • Immigrants friendly Policies: Saskatchewan’s Immigration program – SINP is designed and implemented in a way that it provides the pathway to PR status in the province easy and transparent
  • Free access to Govt. Services: Provincial government of Saskatchewan provides it, permanent residents or citizens, with following services – Cognitive Disability Strategy (CDS) Support, Free Monthly Child Care Subsidy, Home Repair Program, Saskatchewan Employment Supplement (SES), Seniors Income Plan (SIP).

Other than these SINP offers the applicants with Competitive application processing times, and assistance from provincial immigration officers who are available to explain program requirements and processes.

Overview of SINP

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program – SINP is a provincial nomination program for the province of Saskatchewan that allows the province to select/nominate skilled immigrants to live in the province as a permanent resident. These immigrants are selected based on the required skill-sets in the labour market of the province so that they will be able to help in the economic development of the province.

There is a total of four sub-categories under SINP:

  • International Skilled Worker Category – For skilled immigrants who wishes to settle and work in the province. Following are the sub-categories:
    • International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer
    • International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand
    • International Skilled Worker: Saskatchewan Express Entry
  • Saskatchewan Experience Category – For immigrants who are currently working and living in the province. Following are the sub-categories:
    • Existing Work Permit
    • Health Professionals
    • Hospitality Sector Project
    • Long Haul Truck Driver Project
    • Students
  • Entrepreneur and Farm Category – For entrepreneurs looking to run their own business in Saskatchewan and for experienced farmers to buy and operate their own farm in the province
  • International Graduate Entrepreneur Category – For International Students that have graduated from a post-secondary institution in the province and are planning to start their business in the province.

Like other PNPs, SINP also has an “enhanced” stream that is in-line with the Express Entry Program. SINP’s International Skilled Worker: Express Entry sub-category allows the province to search for skilled immigrants with required work experience in the federal government’s express pool. Once an express entry candidate gets the provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points.

Innovative Change in SINP

Positive changes have been made in the SINP’s most famous stream – International Skilled Worker (ISW) category. This category allows the province to target the immigrants with skill-sets or work experience in an occupation that is in-demand in the province. Earlier applications were submitted announced within a brief period of intake; this has been replaced by the Expression of Interest (EOI) system. This system allows the eligible candidates to submit their profile in the pool and improve their profile while standing in the pool to get the Invitation to Apply (ITA).

What are the requirements to apply for SINP?

Every category under SINP has different requirements that allow them to select immigrants with the required credentials. We will be discussing the process to apply for the Saskatchewan Provincial Nomination certificate through SINP’s International Skilled Worker category.

For candidates to be eligible to apply under International Skilled Worker: Saskatchewan Express Entry they are required to meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Must score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 in SINP Point Assessment Grid
  • Need to take a language test that meets the Express Entry language requirements with minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 5
  • Must complete post-secondary education, training or apprenticeship that must be equal to the Canadian education system (Diploma, Certificate or Degree)
  • Need to have a minimum of one year of work experience in the past ten years in an occupation that is highly skilled and is not on the Excluded Occupation List
  • Work Experience must be in the field of completed post-secondary education
  • May be required to provide with proof of Professional Status or proof of eligibility for Licensure for your occupation
  • Must provide with proof of settlement funds and a settlement plan

Once you are able to meet all the minimum requirements, the candidate is required to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile through an online portal “OASIS”. Once the EOI profile is created, it is submitted into the Saskatchewan’s EOI pool with profiles of the other candidates. Higher ranked profiles are then issued the invitation to submit their application for provincial nomination.

Once the candidate gets an ITA, they are required to pay a non-refundable CAD $350 application fee online by Mastercard or Visa. It is the last step in order to submit the application online.

What is SINP’s International Skilled Worker EOI?

Submitting an International Skilled Worker EOI is not an application to the Saskatchewan provincial office. It is a pre-application that allows the candidate to fill an online form and show their interest to apply for SINP.

The EOI profile of the candidate will remain valid for one year from the original date created. Once it expires, the candidate is required to create a new EOI profile to remain in the system.

Saskatchewan regularly held EOI draws that issue Invitation to Apply (ITA). The number of ITAs issued is dependent on annual processing targets and employment demands. Once the candidate has the invitation, they will have 60 days to submit their completed online application to SINP with the proper set of documents.

What are the steps to apply for Saskatchewan PNP?

One can easily apply for a provincial nomination through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Following are the steps to apply for SINP PNP:

  • Choose the category to apply under. Candidate has to choose the categories under SINP to apply for International Skilled Worker Category, Saskatchewan Experience Category, Entrepreneur Category, and Farm Category.
  • Create an EOI profile through OASIS online portal. EOI profiles are then evaluated based on the SINP point assessment grid.
  • Higher ranked profiles are then issued the invitation to submit their application to the SINP. The candidate will have 60 days to submit their application with a proper set of documents for the provincial nomination.
  • The candidate’s application will then be processed by the provincial immigration office.
  • If the application is successfully evaluated then the candidate will be approved for immigration under SINP, and they will be nominated to the federal government for PR status.
  • After the candidate gets the nomination, it will be reflected in the express entry profile of the candidate. They will have 30 days to accept the SINP nomination.
  • Once a nomination is accepted, IRCC will then invite the candidate to apply for Canada PR Visa within 60 days of getting the invitation.
  • If the candidate will meet all the requirements, IRCC will issue the permanent resident visa to the candidate and any accompanying family members.

What is Application Processing Time for SINP?

The following table illustrates the average processing time that it takes for 80% of applications. The time is measured when the complete application is received when it completely processed. These processing times are an average based on the past quarter (or three months) under various categories of SINP.
