Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP )

In Western Canada’s prairie area, the province of Saskatchewan is one of the country’s agricultural production centers, and it is home to some of the country’s largest farms. The region, abundant in agriculture, is home to two large Canadian cities, Regina and Saskatoon.

SINP: Overview 

sinp

SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program), also known as the Provincial Nominee Program, is a federal government of Saskatchewan program sponsored by the federal government of Canada. It is designed to choose immigrants who would fill labor shortages in the province.

Suppose you possess a talent that corresponds to the positions that are now accessible in the labor market in Saskatchewan. In that case, you have a possibility of being nominated by this program and obtaining permanent residence in Canada. You and your common-law partner, spouse, children, family members, and other dependents are eligible to benefit from the same arrangement.

For those who are currently working in Canada or have previous work experience in Canada as a foreign worker, for those who did work in Canada or the Canadian province of Saskatchewan as a temporary resident and are now planning to immigrate to Canada, for those who wish to obtain permanent residency in Canada in Saskatchewan, we may be able to assist you.

Now let us look at some of the programs for SINP.

1. International Skilled Worker (ISW) classification

Take note that the International Skilled Worker Category has application limits in place for both candidates who have received a job offer and applicants who have not received a job offer in the last year. The SINP has achieved the maximum number of applications it can accept from candidates who have not yet received an offer of employment. Therefore it is no longer accepting applications in this category.

Applicants with a genuine full-time permanent employment offer in Saskatchewan are still eligible to apply under the International Skilled Worker Category, which accepts applications.

Applicants must meet the following requirements:
  • Score a minimum of 60 points out of a possible 100 points on the point evaluation grid.
  • Possess a minimum of one year of relevant work experience in your chosen profession within the last ten years.
  • Have received a minimum of a 4.0 on the Canadian Language Benchmark exam (or equivalent).
  • If the work is in a regulated trade or mandatory employment, evidence of proper licensing will be needed to be submitted.

You can offer full-time permanent work from a Saskatchewan employer who is either categorized as a Type 0, A, or B profession under the NOC categorization system or a designated trade in Saskatchewan.

2: Saskatchewan Work and Life Experience

For foreign nationals living and working in Saskatchewan and becoming permanent residents, this type of application is created specifically for them. The show has been split into a variety of streams for your convenience.

Subcategory of Work Permits that are currently in effect

Work permits for skilled employees who have been working in Saskatchewan for six months on a closed work permit or as part of the International Experience Canada program are eligible. Your full-time permanent employment offer must come from the same business where you have been employed for the last six months or more.

Subcategory of the Health Professions

Those who have received international training in health care and have worked in Saskatchewan for at least six months on a temporary work visa are eligible to apply. Three streams are included in the program: doctors, nurses, and other health workers.

Points to take care about SINP

  1. Remember that if you are not nominated by the SINP, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will be in charge of determining your eligibility for Permanent Residency in the United States (including assessment of relevant factors such as health and criminality). The SINP does not affect the CIC’s judgments on whether or not to grant Permanent Residency status.
  2. Also, keep in mind that application requirements may and will change at any moment and that applications will be handled following the criteria currently listed on the SINP website when the application is received. The federal government has established additional nomination restrictions, and these limits cannot be changed by the government of Saskatchewan, which is another limitation. There is no assurance that your Expression of Interest will be approved or that you will be nominated.

Closing remarks about SINP

Except for Saskatchewan, all provinces have provincial nominee programs, including British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Newfoundland, and Labrador, the Northwest Territories (including the Yukon) Alberta, the Yukon Territory, Prince Edward Island, and Ontario.

If Saskatchewan isn’t the place for you, you may look at the qualifying requirements for the streams of programs offered in all of these other states and provinces instead. This program is unique to Quebec, which nominates candidates for Canadian citizenship, resident visas, and Canadian permanent residence under a single umbrella scheme.

Make an informed decision. As applications are few and possibilities are many, it is imperative that you quickly determine whether or not you qualify for the application procedure under the criteria established by Canadian Immigration Law.
