SINP Express Entry is accepting 1,000 new applicants

Good news for workers interested in Saskatchewan immigration programs! The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is accepting 1,000 new applicants under the International Skilled Worker. This is a sub-category of SINP Express Entry. And it provides the opportunity for eligible candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in the federal Express Entry immigration pool. Also, in this stream, applicants don’t need a job offer.

Successful applicants of this Saskatchewan Immigration program will receive 600 additional points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) under the SINP Express Entry sub-category for International Skilled Worker. In addition, after applying, candidates may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Permanent Residency in Canada in the subsequent draw.

This sub-category of SINP Express Entry is very popular. Last time it was open, late July 2017, the 600 applications available were filled within days. Therefore, if you want to go for this Saskatchewan immigration program, you better hurry up and check below all the in-demand occupations and requirements for this stream.
