Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

Foreign nationals interested in living and working in Saskatchewan can apply for SINP for Canadian Permanent Residency. It is an economic ability driven immigration program where applicants have been nominated basis their ability to work, live, and do business in Saskatchewan.
In the SINP, the province of Saskatchewan:

  • Nominates and invites foreign nationals who wish to reside, work or do business in Saskatchewan; and
  • Proposes successful candidates to the Canadian federal government for permanent residency to Canada
      Interested applicants will need to make an application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for their permanent residency and apply in SINP separately.

Making an application to SINP and obtaining the nomination from Saskatchewan can significantly help to increase the chances of receiving an invitation to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency.

SINP has four immigration categories:

Saskatchewan Experience

Foreign nationals who are presently working and living in Saskatchewan are eligible to apply in this immigration stream. They should be on a valid work permit and can make an application under a suitable sub-category:

  • Skilled Worker – Apply for SINP in this immigration stream if if you are a skilled worker holding a valid work permit for Canada
  • Health Professionals – If you are a physician, nurse or other health professionals, this is the stream to apply under for Canadian permanent residency
  • Hospitality Sector – As a hospitality sector worker, make your application in this stream if you are already living and working in Saskatchewan
  • Long-Haul Truck Driver – If you are a truck driver experienced in long-haul driving, you can apply for Canadian permanent residency under this immigration stream
  • Semi-skilled Agriculture Worker with Existing Work Permit – If you are worning in Saskatchewan as a nursery worker, greenhouse worker, general farm worker or in the agriculture sector, then you can make an application under this stream
  • Students – If you have graduated from an approved post-secondary institution in Saskatchewan, apply for SINP under this sub-category.

International Skilled Worker

Non-Canadians wanting to live, work or do business in Saskatchewan can apply under this category. They will need to successfully clear the eligibility criteria including but not limited to skilled work experience, education, and clear the language proficiency in French or English. It has multiple sub-categories, including:

  • International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand – a foreign national can apply whose job occupation is present in the list of in-demand occupations in Saskatchewan
  • International Skilled Worker: Employment Offer – a foreign national having a full-time and permanent job offer from a Saskatchewan employer can make an application under this stream
  • International Skilled Worker: Saskatchewan Express Entry – An applicant can apply through the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category

Each of the sub-categories has its own selection criteria that need to be successfully fulfilled.


Non-Canadians who wish to start, collaborate, and operate a business in Saskatchewan can apply under this category. They will need to:

  • Actively manage the entrepreneurial venture with their family members
  • Should successfully meet the minimum eligibility criteria for the immigration stream
  • Should submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) to the SINP
  • Should be able to complete the Points Assessment Grid after submission of the EOI
  • Need to show a minimum net worth of CAD 500,000 inclusive of personal and business assets (net of liabilities)
  • Should demonstrate at least three years of relevant entrepreneurial or business management experience in the last ten years just before making an application to the SINP
  • Should intend to invest CAD 300,000 in their entrepreneurial venture in Saskatoon or Regina or invest CAD 200,000 if investing in other Saskatchewan cities.

Farm Buyer & Operators

Foreign nationals wishing to buy, start and operate a farm in Saskatchewan can apply under this immigration stream. The applicants need to:

    • Demonstrate relevant farming experience;
    • Should possess significant funds (cash or assets) to invest in purchasing or starting farming operations;
    • Possess an intent to purchase and manage a Saskatchewan farm.

Note: Non-Canadians who have made an application to SINP in the Saskatchewan Experience or International Skilled Worker categories are eligible to apply for and obtain a temporary work permit. To apply for the permit, their SINP application should have been approved and successfully sent to the Centralized Intake Office of IRCC.

The letter of support issued by the province of Saskatchewan can help you and your family members move to Saskatchewan. Once the permit gets IRCC approval, you can start your business operations while your Permanent resident visa is under process.
