What is SINP?
The Saskatchewan provincial nomination program is one of the pathways towards becoming a permanent resident in Canada. Saskatchewan is a Canadian prairie province in the central part of the country and is one of the two provinces that are completely landlocked. The province has an area of 651,900 km² and a population of over 1 million, with over 70% living in the southern half of the province.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a realistic way to migrate to Canada in aim of becoming a permanent resident. This blog will help you understand why people choose Saskatchewan over other provinces.
Why is the SINP Program Special?
If you are struggling to get the highest scores for IELTS, this program is your key. The IELTS requirement for this particular province is quite low in comparison to the Federal or Express Entry program. The IELTS requirement of the SINP program is CLB 7 or CLB 8 which is considered to be an achievable score. This factor definitely increases your probability of getting nominated.
Moving on to the job market, Saskatchewan is one of the provinces that has almost every in-demand job in Canada. Truth be told, it has so many job opportunities that it does not have an in-demand occupations list but an ineligible occupations list instead. Though, the most popular jobs at Saskatchewan are Social and Community Service Workers, Early Childhood Educators and Assistants, Medical Laboratory Technologists and many more.
Unlike other provinces, Saskatchewan does not require any sort of job offer from the migrant, whereas the other provinces make this requirement a must to enter their territory, with work experience in the specific job role for a minimum of 2 years as well.
It is a province that has a very standard pay. Perhaps, our clients at Montrela Consultants who are already residing in Canada were able to find a job within a span of 2 weeks – 2 months. Additionally, there are help centers in and around Canada where they themselves were immigrants 20 years ago and they provide guidance to the new immigrants. Further, you can find quite a number of job portals in aim of seeking help for job opportunities.
The International Skilled Worker Category
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a program designed to address the labor gaps of the province. Therefore, the Saskatchewan immigration office often updates and expands its list of occupations in demand. The province’s three main skilled worker immigration streams are:
» International Skilled Worker – Employment Offer
This category is for immigrants who have an offer for a skilled job in Saskatchewan or meets the criteria of the sub-category.
» International Skilled Worker – Occupations In-Demand
This category is for immigrants who don’t have a job offer in Saskatchewan but are highly skilled in an in-demand occupation or meets the criteria of the sub-category.
» International Skilled Worker – Saskatchewan Express Entry
This category is for immigrants who are either in the need to live and work in Saskatchewan, the ones waiting in the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Express Entry Pool or the ones who meet the sub-category criteria.

Saskatchewan is home to probably the quickest developing urban areas in the nation, including Regina and Saskatoon. In fact, the latter is the second-fastest burgeoning city in Canada with a steady year-over-year growth rate of over 4%. The number of inhabitants in Saskatchewan is also sprouting, with millennials and migrants lighting the way.
Since the late 19th century, the economy has been focused on farming and livestock production. Saskatchewan produces a significant amount of wheat, barley, and other grains, and only Alberta produces more beef. During the 20th century, oil drilling and natural gas extraction has also become important. Tourism, in the form of hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping is also a booming industry.
iv. Extension of the Immigration Policies
People in Saskatchewan are happy to welcome new immigrants. Consistently, Saskatchewan invites more than 9,000 immigrants from more than 180 countries across the globe. What attracts immigrants to the province is its friendly Provincial Nominee Program that is designed to make immigration easier for people with experience and skills that are in high demand. Additionally, Saskatchewan has for the past decade had more people migrating to the region from different areas of the country than those leaving.
Saskatchewan currently receives nearly 5% of all newcomers to Canada, up from 1% in 2001, and the province’s government has a retention target of 80% for the 2021/22 year.
v. Education Programs and Retention Strategies
The Graduate Retention Program is Saskatchewan’s intense move to make the province the go-to place for recent graduates. It’s essentially a credit (with both refundable and non-refundable portions) that refunds up to $20,000 of tuition fees shelled out by post-secondary graduates who work and live in the province for 7 or more years after graduating.
The University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina are among the top learning institutions in Canada, offering a varied selection of courses to both local and international students.
