SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program)
Currently, Saskatchewan receives around 5 percent of all the newcomer immigrants to Canada; the rate was 1 percent in 2001. The Saskatchewan’s government has a retention target of 80 percent for 2019/2020.
In the previous year, 72 percent of the 15,510 newcomer immigrants to Canada who claimed their intended destination as Saskatchewan were admitted through the province’s Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program.
The SINP is an economic class immigration program which is a part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program which allows the participating provinces and territories of Canada to nominate a set number of foreign entrepreneurs, workers, and international graduates of Canadian post-secondary institutions for the Canadian Permanent Residence.
SINP is divided into four main immigration categories:
- International Skilled Worker
- Saskatchewan Experience
- Farm Owners and Operators
