How to Immigrate to Saskatchewan through PNP

The province of Saskatchewan is very rich in agriculture and is referred to as the bread basket of the world because of the amount of plentiful crops it produces. It is important to note that Canada is the lead exporter of pulse crops internationally and a majority of those pulse crops come directly from Saskatchewan. Additionally, Saskatchewan has the most roads out of any other province in Canada; the infrastructure of the province is quite admirable. Skilled foreign nationals who are applying through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) have four different ways to gain permanent residency in Saskatchewan. Under this program, Saskatchewan chooses individuals who have a connection with the province of Saskatchewan. In this article, I will address what the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is and the four different ways to gain permanent residency in Saskatchewan.

What is the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is an economic immigration program that assists the province of Saskatchewan to meet its labour market needs and also helps prioritize economic development within Saskatchewan. It also assists skilled foreign nationals by offering a quicker entry into Canada for permanent residency with competitive application processing times. The program facilitates Saskatchewan to nominate foreign nationals with skilled work experience and who adequately qualify under the provincially established criteria to work in Saskatchewan and thus obtain permanent residency. As a result, these individuals will then be able to contribute to Saskatchewan’s economy.

How does the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) Work

If you receive a nomination from the province of Saskatchewan, then you may apply for permanent residency in Canada. Keep in mind, every year the government of Saskatchewan only accepts a select amount of applicants in each category/stream. Furthermore, you must demonstrate an intention to reside in the province of Saskatchewan, should you wish to apply for this program. Additionally, a benefit of this program is that your spouse or common law partner, as well as any dependent children, may also apply for permanent residency in Canada, if you are nominated. Ultimately, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) make the ultimate decision on all permanent residency applications in Canada.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) offers nominations in its own immigration streams that target certain groups such as International Skilled Workers, Saskatchewan Experienced Workers, Entrepreneurs and Farmers. As previously mentioned, under the SINP, there are four different ways that you can apply for permanent residency in Saskatchewan; therefore, it is best to comprehend what all of them have to offer before applying for the one that best suits you.

Pathways under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

There are four different pathways that you can apply for under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Below, I will list and describe the different streams in detail.

International Skilled Worker Category

This stream is intended for skilled foreign nationals who would like to reside and work in the province of Saskatchewan. There are three sub streams that are included in this stream, which include: the employment offer, the occupation in-demand, and the Saskatchewan Express Entry. In order to qualify under this stream you must meet the SINP eligibility requirements and have adequate factors that will aid in your settlement in the province of Saskatchewan, such as skilled work experience, education, and language abilities in either English and/or French.

Saskatchewan Experience Category

This stream is intended for skilled foreign nationals who currently are employed and residing in the province of Saskatchewan. It is important to note that the foreign national must have proper authorization in order to work, i.e. a work permit. The skilled foreign national must also desire to obtain permanent residency in Canada through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee program (SINP).

Entrepreneur Category

This stream is intended for foreign nationals who have experience in running a business and would like to obtain or partner in a potential business in the province of Saskatchewan. Fortunately, under this category you can also bring your family to start your business. A requirement under this category is that you must be involved in and actively manage and operate the business while you reside in Saskatchewan with your family.

Farm Category

This stream is intended for foreign nationals who would like to permanently move to the province of Saskatchewan and who have adequate and proven experience in farming. It is important to note that these foreign nationals must also have a considerable amount of capital in order to appropriately invest in a farming operation as well as plan to purchase and operate a farm in the province of Saskatchewan. It is worth mentioning that this category revolves primarily around agricultural production, i.e. livestock and crops, as Saskatchewan is one of the most prominent provinces that exports crops.
