To be considered in the Physicians stream, you must:
- Provide proof of a temporary work permit confirming that you have been practicing as a physician in Saskatchewan for a minimum of six months.
- Have an offer of permanent employment that is issued by a provincial health authority or the health education institution where you are currently employed and/or verified with documents that describe your permanent arrangement to practice medicine in a Saskatchewan medical office (e.g. a business plan or contract, partnership agreement, or other documents describing the applicant's practice).
The SINP will obtain a letter of support from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CoPSS). The CoPSS must state your type of license and expiry date, and state their support for you to obtain permanent residence status in Saskatchewan. If applicable, you will also require a letter from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada indicating that you have licensing in a particular specialty.
Program criteria may change without notice and applications will be assessed according to the criteria on the Saskatchewan immigration website when the SINP receives your completed application. Please be advised the SINP is subject to a nomination limit set by the federal government and application intake thresholds. The ability to be nominated is affected by these constraints and program criterion. No application is guaranteed to be accepted and/or nominated.
