Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program (SINP)
To provide immigration and recruitment services for the public to immigrate to Canada via the Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program, RCICs should be authorized and licensed by Saskatchewan. Our Chief Consultant, Bency Justin, is approved as an Immigration consultant under the foreign worker recruitment and Immigration Service Act (FWRISA) by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Work Place Safety, Government of Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is located in the center of Canada, with more than 10% of its land composed of freshwater (rivers, lakes, etc.). Its economy is primarily based on agriculture and vital natural resources industries like forestry and fishing. The two major cities are Saskatoon and Regina.
The success of the SINP is reflected in its immigrant retention rates, which stand at over 85 percent, indicating that newcomers enjoy living and working in Saskatchewan. The employment rate for newcomers is also impressive as they have access to job opportunities that match their skills and qualifications, with a rate of 76 percent.
What are the categories of SINP?
Under SINP Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP), there are nine programs under four streams.
