Sask. Government increases application entry for SINP

The Government of Saskatchewan has increased its application intake thresholds last August 22 accepting 900 more applicants for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) Express Entry and 300 more applicants for the Occupation-In-Demand Category.

Category Previous Max. Number of Applications Current Max. Number of Applications Increase %
Express Entry 1,700 2,600 53%
Occupations In-Demand 3,000 3,300 10%

The SINP-Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams are both on a first-come, first-served basis. These two streams are popular to the point that the moment they open for new applications, they are usually close in days or just in hours.

According to the Saskatchewan website, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP will serve as your pathway to immigrate to Canada.  Saskatchewan invites residency applications from non-Canadians who want to make Saskatchewan their home and nominates successful applicants to the federal government, so they can gain permanent residency in Canada.

The SINP is only one of the steps toward becoming a permanent resident in Saskatchewan. All applicants must also apply for residency through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Canadian Immigration Commission.

The Canadian Express Entry requires candidates to have an existing Express Entry online profile. Applicants must obtain 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, making them as the front-runner in the selection of the Express Entry pool. After the selection, the candidates can apply for permanent residence through Express Entry within the maximum time of six months.

The Occupations In-Demand category would lead to successful applicants obtaining a nomination certificate from Saskatchewan, which can then be used to then apply for Canadian permanent residence outside the federal Express Entry.
