Canada - Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program

 

Overview


Located in the prairie region of Canada, Saskatchewan has long been known as the "Bread Basket" of the World". Historically, immigrants were attracted to Saskatchewan by the availability of wide pieces of fertile land. Today it is primarily the province’s fast-growing modern economy that attracts new immigrants to build their lives in Saskatchewan.


In fact, Saskatchewan is making efforts to increase the level of immigration to the province to attract about 10,000 newcomers each year in order to contribute to its growing economy.
One way the province does this is through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, which allows the province’s government to select individuals who wish to settle in and contribute to the province and speed up their immigration visa application process. Saskatchewan’s program identifies particularly entrepreneurs and helps them to settle in Saskatchewan.

Process


There are three steps to the nomination process: 


Step 1: Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the SINP


Prospective immigrants indicate their interest in residing in Saskatchewan and operating a business in the province by providing information about their entrepreneurial experience, assets, and Business Establishment Plan (BEP), among other factors, in an online survey. Those candidates who meet the minimum entry criteria will be accepted into the EOI candidate pool where they are ranked according to selection factors on the points criteria grid and given a score.

 

Step 2: Invitation to Apply

 

Candidates are selected from the EOI system based on their score. The top scoring EOIs are prioritized for selection and formal application submission. Selected candidates are invited to apply to the SINP under the Entrepreneur immigration sub-category. Candidates then undergo the verification process. Those who pass this stage will be issued a SINP Entrepreneur Approval Letter, which will convey support of the applicant’s request to IRCC for a two year temporary work permit with which the candidate can reside and work legally in Saskatchewan while he or she implements the business proposal.

 

Step 3: Nomination


Once an applicant satisfies the conditions of the Business Performance Agreement he or she can apply to be nominated by the SINP for permanent residence.
