The SINP offers:

  • No ranking system and less wait time
  • The ability to select applicants whose skills and abilities best fit the province's labour market needs;
  • Application processing times that are competitive; and

Nominations are granted at the sole discretion of the Government of Saskatchewan. Successful candidates are identified as SINP nominees in their application for permanent resident status with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Persons are encouraged to apply to the SINP if they believe they qualify under the program criteria. Applicants are responsible for completing accurate applications, including valid documentation required. Please note that there are two sets of Procedural Guidelines for applicants to the SINP: a) one for the International Skilled Worker, and Saskatchewan Experience Categories; and b) one for the Entrepreneur and Farm Category.

These procedural guidelines apply to the SINP International Skilled Worker and Saskatchewan Experience categories. SINP applicants may choose to engage the services of an immigration consultant or not, however, no immigration consultant has or will be allocated an immigrant quota from the Province of Saskatchewan.
