The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) authorizes Saskatchewan to nominate applicants for permanent residency. Within the SNIP, there are three classes that an applicant could fall under: The International Skilled Worker Category, Saskatchewan Experience Category, and Entrepreneur and Farm Category.
The International Skilled Worker category is for eligible individuals who have experience, education, and language proficiency that make them attractive candidates for permanent residency in Saskatchewan.
There are three sub-categories of the International Skilled Worker category, which are the Employment Offer, Occupation In-Demand, and Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-categories.
For all three sub-categories, applicants must score at least 60 points out of 100 on the SINP point assessment grid, and either live outside Canada or have valid legal status in Canada and not be a refugee claimant.
