Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program

Saskatchewan attracts thousands of immigrants through its Nominee Program

What’s the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

On March 16, 1998, the government of Canada and Saskatchewan signed the Canada-Saskatchewan Immigration Agreement, which established a two-year pilot program (Provincial Nominee Program). The Provincial Nominee Program enables Saskatchewan to recruit immigrants with the potential to make a significant contribution to the provincial economy.
