Saskatchewan Immigration Launches 2 New PNP Streams for Foreigners

Those wishing to settle in Canada will be pleased to learn that Saskatchewan Immigration has introduced 2 new and easier programs for international workers in year 2022.

Saskatchewan is a Canadian province that is economically dynamic and therefore has a large labor market. Through its programs, Saskatchewan Immigration welcomes skilled individuals with families to the province who have a severe shortage of professionals.

Thus, foreign skilled workers can apply for any Canadian permanent residency program through Saskatchewan provincial nominee programs (PNPs). The Saskatchewan’s Occupation in Demand program (SINP OID) is already very popular among immigrants because it can be applied for without a job offer.

Above all, there is still a shortage of skilled workers in the province. Hence, Saskatchewan Immigration has introduced two new programs with more lenient terms so that more foreign workers can be brought to Canada.

The SINP two new pilots have been launched and candidates with in-demand occupations can now apply under this initiative, which shortens the processing time. In the article, I have compiled information regarding these new provincial nominee programs in Saskatchewan.

Furthermore, individuals with post-secondary education credentials in health care must provide an equivalency assessment performed by a Canadian regulatory body.

Most importantly, a potential candidate must have an SINP-approved full-time job offer within Saskatchewan. You will need to furnish a Job Approval Letter that your employer will provide you.
