Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program - SINP

Located in Western Canada’s prairie region, the province of Saskatchewan is one of the hubs of agricultural production in Canada. Rich in farmlands, the province hosts two major Canadian cities, Regina and Saskatoon.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), is a collection of immigration pathways enabling foreign nationals to become Canadian permanent residents. The PNP is strategically designed to attract immigrants in areas which will benefit the province: skilled workers, workers in sectors with labour shortages, workers with job offers, and entrepreneurs. The province operates several immigration streams divided into three categories:

International Skilled Worker Category

Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker encompasses three immigration streams designed to target skilled workers who have the ability to join Saskatchewan’s workforce and adapt easily to life in the province. Some streams prioritize workers who have experience in sectors experiencing labour shortages, while other streams target workers with employment offers from Saskatchewan employers.

  • Saskatchewan Express Entry
  • Saskatchewan Employment Offer
  • Saskatchewan In-Demand Occupation

Saskatchewan Experience Category

Saskatchewan Experience encompasses five immigration streams designed to target workers who have already gained employment experience in Saskatchewan. As well, workers in these streams must have an offer of employment from a Saskatchewan employer to continue working in the province. Certain streams prioritize workers with experience in certain sectors which are experiencing labour shortages in the province.

  • Saskatchewan Existing Work Permit
  • Saskatchewan Health Professionals
  • Saskatchewan Hospitality Sector Project
  • Saskatchewan Long-Haul Truck Driver Project
  • Saskatchewan Students

Saskatchewan Entrepreneur Category

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) Entrepreneur Category offers candidates the opportunity to establish, acquire, or partner in a business in Saskatchewan and be actively involved in its management.

Saskatchewan Farm Owners and Operators

The SINP Farm Owners and Operators Sub-Category offers candidates and their families the opportunity to immigrate to Saskatchewan to purchase and operate a farm in the province.

This sub-category is designed to attract potential immigrants with proven experience in farming, considerable capital to invest in a farming operation, and a genuine intention to reside in the province of Saskatchewan

International Graduate Entrepreneur Category

This category is for international students graduating from eligible post-secondary institutions in Saskatchewan and who are planning to start a business in the province. Approved candidates will have to operate and manage a business in Saskatchewan for at least a year to be eligible for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
