Saskatchewan expands the SINP to include 279 new jobs
On November 1, 2023, the Government of Saskatchewan announced broadening the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) to bolster worker retention.
The expansion now allows certain work permit holders in intermediate and lower-skilled occupations to apply for permanent residency under the Existing Work Permit stream.
This change opens up PR opportunities for internationally trained workers in these sectors who meet the program's criteria, including language requirements and a full-time job offer.
Previously, only high-skilled and designated trade workers were eligible for this program.
Now, an additional 279 occupations, such as farm labourers, truck drivers, retail sales, nurse aides, and equipment operators, can apply.
To qualify for the expanded stream, applicants must hold an eligible work permit, a Labor Market Impact Assessment-Supported Work Permit, a Francophone mobility work permit, or a CUAET visa for recently arrived Ukrainians.
