Canadian Immigration Question
We are living in Estevan, Sasksatchwan since arriving through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) 13 months ago. Please confirm that if we move from this province to Ontario for my job and for my daughter’s admission to Windsor University, is there any effect? Are we bound to live in Saskatchewan for a certain period?
Applicants under any of the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), including the SINP, must have the intention to reside in the given province at the time they make an application and upon landing in Canada. However, successful applicants and their family members (if applicable) under any PNP obtain Canadian permanent resident status once they have landed. With this status, individuals may live and work in any Canadian province or territory. Possible exceptions to this provision may arise in the case of certain PNP business streams, which may have conditional performance agreements in which the applicant agrees to reside in a given province for a certain period of time after landing in Canada.

Hi. I just want to know. Will it affect the person who sponsor me if I move to another province here in Canada? I live here in Manitoba for 4 years now. They said it will affect their credibility to sponsor again from our country. Thry said, they will be blacklisted from sponsoring. Thanks.
I wanted to ask about my citizenship application. I came to Winnipeg, Canada on march 9, 2016 as a provincial nominee. I lived there for 6 months and then moved for studies to Toronto for 20 months in dental hygiene. Now after finishing my studies, I wanted to move back to Winnipeg but I am unable to find myself even a part time job, whereas I got a full time job in Toronto. I want to know if my family and I would be able to get citizenship if we apply from Ontario.
