Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)



If you are not eligible under the Federal Skilled Worker program and can't wait for changes in Canada's high demand occupations, an alternative is the Provincial Nominee Progra. If you have relatives in Saskatchewan, try to contact them as they may be able to help you immigrate to Canada through Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
