Changes To The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) For 2014
15 Nov 2013
In response to feedback from immigration stakeholders, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that the SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) will be revamped and streamlined in the New Year.
The SINP is PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) of Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Most of the provinces in Canada have dedicated PNPs, which allow them to nominate overseas workers to the Federal government for Canadian PR (Permanent Residency).
Changes to the SINP will become effective from 2nd January, 2014. At present, the program consists of 9 immigration sub-categories which will be combined into 3 overarching categories and they will be as follows:
Entrepreneur and Farm
International Skilled Worker
Apart from changing the content and structure of the program, beginning in January the submission and processing of all SINP applications will be done electronically. The overall process will be made more efficient and easier for both visa officers and applicants by using an exclusively online system.
