Saskatchewan Nomination Program (SINP)
The Saskatchewan province lies in the center of Canada, in the Praire region. With only two major cities in the province, Saskatchewan’s economy depends on agriculture production. Regina and Saskatoon are the two important cities while the rest of the province consists of prosperous farmlands and natural resources.
It’s among the fastest expanding and thriving provinces of Canada. In 2020 alone, 13,364 people from around the world migrated to Saskatchewan. The province is looking to welcome as many as 15,000 migrants annually. For foreigners, it’s among the destinations that are currently in high demand.
The Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) opens up opportunities for immigrating and earning permanent residency to Canada through its immigration streams.
The federal government aims at bringing talents that will also help assist the province’s economy. Skilled workers, workers in labor shortage sectors, entrepreneurs, and workers with job offers can migrate through the SINP.
Foreign workers, international students, investors, and entrepreneurs can migrate through the different immigration streams offered under the SINP.
