About Canada’s SINP Stream

Canada’s Saskatchewan province has been actively inviting skilled workers via its Provincial Nominee Program known as Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). The SINP has two key streams, which are:

  • Express Entry Subcategory and
  • Occupation in Demand (OID) Subcategory

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program permits people living outside Canada who fit into the eligibility classifications offered by SINP, to have a chance to apply for Permanent Residency in Canada. Every year, Indians in large number immigrate to Saskatchewan. This year, it could be you!

To apply for SINP, candidate must have to show a formal interest in writing to the government of Saskatchewan. This process of declaring interest in immigration is called submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI). Currently, SINP has its own streams as well as express entry linked streams to call immigrants from the federal pool of applicants. The selected candidates by the SINP can get 600 extra CRS points, which guarantee that they get Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the next draw.

Presently SINP is seeking immigrants from the list of Occupations in Demand 2019. This list keeps on changing from time to time. In fact, SINP has recently updated its demand list in a unique way. It has released the list of occupations that are not in demand in the province! Generally, provinces are required to release list of those occupations that are facing labour shortages and are in demand of skilled workforce.
