Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, also known as a Provincial Nominee Program or PNP, is a set of immigration pathways that allows foreign nationals to become Canadian permanent residence. Saskatchewan is located in Western Canada's Prairie Provinces. Saskatchewan's economy is primarily dependent on agriculture, as well as important natural resource industries such as forestry and fishing. It is home to two major cities, Saskatoon, and Regina. There are also vast expanses of untouched wilderness.
Saskatchewan has been a great place to live and work in immigration. In the past, Saskatchewan welcomed between 3,000 to 4,000 newcomers each year. This number has increased to 15,000 which is especially impressive considering Saskatchewan's population of just over 1,000,000. This province is a popular destination for Canadian newcomers. It is the only Canadian province without a saltwater coastline. Its economy is based mainly on agriculture and natural resource industries such as fishing and forestry.
- One-third of the world’s potash is produced in the province, and five percent of the world's Uranium.
- Saskatchewan is home to more than a third world's total exports of durum wheat. It also has the highest number of dry peas and lentil exports.
- The country's sixth-largest onshore producer in Canada.
Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), is an option to immigrate to Canada. The Province of Saskatchewan invites non-Canadians to apply for residency in Saskatchewan and nominates them to the federal government to obtain permanent residence in Canada.
Saskatchewan PNP Program Overview
Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), allows the province of Saskatchewan to nominate individuals to be admitted to Canada by Canada's Federal Government. These people must have the most desirable skills and experience in the local economy. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) helps not only people with the exact skills needed locally but also people who live or work in Saskatchewan or have a desire for investment in or to start a business there. Through the SINP, qualified people and their families can bypass the more complicated and difficult process of immigration by applying directly to Canada. Two ways foreign nationals can come to Saskatchewan via the SINP are available. First, you can apply directly to Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program. This involves sending an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the program. Once nominated, the potential immigrant can create an Express Entry profile and upload their credentials to the system.
