Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
Saskatchewan is home to one of the country’s most rapidly growing economies and populations, thanks largely to the arrival of immigrants from around the world. Saskatchewan is one of the Prairie provinces of Western Canada.
Its economy is primarily based on agriculture and important natural resources industries like forestry and fishing. It boasts two major cities, Saskatoon and Regina, as well as vast expanses of pristine wilderness.
Overview of the Saskatchewan INP
The Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program, officially the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) launched in 1998.
It launched to help address economic and labour market needs through immigration to the province.
Saskatchewan’s provincial program has been very successful. Seven out of 10 newcomers to the province immigrated through the SINP. The province also has a high employment rate for newcomers, around 76 per cent. Retention rates are also high, with over 85 per cent of newcomers choosing to stay in Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is a popular destination among newcomers. The Saskatchewan PNP program has a reputation of being an “easy PNP”. This may be because of the variety of immigration options it provides immigration candidates.
Saskatchewan has an enhanced sub-category, and many base sub-categories. The enhanced sub-category is called Saskatchewan Express Entry, and is under the International Skilled Worker Category.
