The Canadian province of Saskatchewan welcomes thousands of immigrants each year through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

Saskatchewan is among the nine provinces and territories in Canada that are a part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), the route to Canadian permanent residence that goes through the provincial and territorial governments.

You might submit through the SINP if you plan to take up permanent residence in Canada and settle in Saskatchewan.

Skilled foreign workers that are interested in Saskatchewan immigration can submit through the International Skilled Worker (ISW) category of Saskatchewan PNP. While Saskatchewan Express Entry is linked with the federal Express Entry system, the Occupations In-Demand stream runs independently.

An Express Entry candidate that is successful in securing a nomination through ISW: Saskatchewan Express Entry is automatically allotted 600 CRS points.
