SINP Program Changes, for implementation January 2, 2014
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is making changes to the program based on stakeholder input and the need to increase program efficiencies.
The program changes will be effective January 2, 2014, with receipt of applications under the current criterion ending on December 31, 2013. All applications received on or after January 2, 2014 will be subject to the new program criterion. Visit SINP Program Changes for more information.
Application Intake Thresholds
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) has application intake thresholds to improve program efficiency. The SINP will accept a maximum number of applications in each category in each calendar year. Visit SINP Application Intake Thresholds for more information.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) can provide an alternate and quicker means of entry into Canada. It allows Saskatchewan to nominate applicants, who qualify under criteria established by the province, to the federal government for landed immigrant status. There is no deadline to apply to the SINP. However, program criteria may change without notice and your application will be assessed according to the criteria in place at the time we receive your complete application.
The SINP offers:
- The ability to select applicants whose skills and abilities best fit the province's needs;
- Application processing times that are faster than other federal immigration classes; and
- Assistance from Provincial Immigration Officers who are readily available to explain program requirements and processes.
