How do I become a permanent resident in Saskatchewan?
Saskatchewan is one of the most popular Canadian provinces among immigrants which successfully turn hundreds and thousands of dreams into reality every year through its provincial nominee program, known as Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program, SINP.
SINP nominates candidates of different nationalities having skills and experience to meet the requirements of employers in the province as well as to grant them permanent residency status in Canada. Living in Canada with a PR status is the icing on the cake. PR status enables immigrants to enjoy the benefits of all government policies and citizens’ rights except the right to vote.
In the present, Saskatchewan inhabits a large community of immigrants from around the world through its four sub-categories including,
Saskatchewan international skilled worker: International Skilled Worker is one of the most popular sub-categories of provincial program, Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to nominate international workers who are skilled and experienced well enough to meet the shortage of labor in the province’s market.
Saskatchewan Experience: Saskatchewan Experience Category is a subcategory of Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, SINP which receives Expressions of Interest (EOI) from foreign nationals having work experience under any Saskatchewan’s employer as well as holds a valid job offer for permanent, full-paid employment in the province.
Saskatchewan Entrepreneur: Saskatchewan Entrepreneurs stream is a category of Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program (SINP) which receives Expression of interests (EOI) from those candidates who wish to start a new business in the province.
Saskatchewan farm: Saskatchewan farm stream is a category of Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program (SINP) which receives Expression of interests (EOI) from those candidates who wish to start and operate a new farm in the province.
