Saskatchewan is amongst one of the fastest growing economies of Canada thanks to the opportunities it’s giving to immigrants to come and work in the province. SINP provides aspiring immigrants with an opportunity to attain a nomination if they have suitable skills and experience that can boost the province’s economy. If you are successful in receiving ITA from this province, the processing time of your PR application will be much faster.
The SINP accepts applications under the following categories:
International Skilled Worker Category – The application is accepted by the government under three sub categories
- International Skilled Worker – Employment Offer – This sub-category is for skilled workers with a skilled job offer from an employer in the province.
- International Skilled Worker – Occupation In-Demand – This sub-category is for highly skilled workers with experience in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan but, who do not yet have a job offer in the province. On July 16, 2018, the SINP moved to an Expression of Interest System for its Occupation In-Demand sub-category
