The Government of Saskatchewan today announced the launch of an improved online application system for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). Immigrants applying for permanent residence can now apply online to the new Saskatchewan Express Entry category announced earlier this year, as well as other SINP streams.
The Saskatchewan Express Entry Category will add 775 additional immigrant nominees to the SINP. This will bring the total number of SINP nominations up to 5,500 for 2015. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has committed to processing these applications within six months or less, which makes the new category an attractive option for potential immigrants.
“This new category under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program will mean skilled workers immigrate faster and enter our workplaces sooner,” Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “The other benefits of Saskatchewan Express Entry include reducing application backlogs, and moving from a first-come-first-serve processing basis to nominating the most qualified and experienced individuals to contribute to our strong, diversified economy.”
Through the SINP, skilled immigrants who are in the federal Express Entry candidate pool will be able to apply to the Saskatchewan Express Entry category. The category is targeted at individuals who have post-secondary education and training in occupations that are in demand in the province. An SINP nomination will guarantee they will be invited to apply for permanent residence by CIC.
The online application and more information are available on official site or by calling 306-798-7467.
