Saskatchewan Immigration Basics: What You Need to Know

Saskatchewan is Canadian province which can offer a number of opportunities for immigrant workers. These professionals can either remain here on a temporary or a permanent basis. One efficient means to acquire permission for employment is through what is known as the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). In particular, the International Skilled Worker Category is of interest to anyone who does not hold citizenship and still desires to enjoy a substantial amount of work opportunities. Let us look at how this programme works and the eligibility requirements.

Eligibility Requirements

It is first important to keep in mind that one first needs to live outside of Canada or have a legal status within the country. Furthermore, the applicant must be able to provide a job approval letter and a job offer (no unsolicited applications will be accepted). Besides these two basic criteria, there are several other standards which should be met. These will include:

  • No less than a score of sixty on the job assessment grid.
  • At least one year of experience during the past ten years in regards to the expected job title.
  • A basic understanding of the Canadian language.
  • In regards to a regulated trade or profession, evidence of the proper Saskatchewan accreditation.

Also, it is necessary for the applicant to provide forms such as:

  • A confirmed offer of either full-time or part-time employment in Saskatchewan.
  • An illustration that the position in question is considered to be in high demand.
  • A degree in post-secondary education.
  • Evidence of sufficient funds and a settlement plan.

Please note that these variables may be subject to change and that there can also be limits in regards to the number of applicants which are able to be approved within a certain time period. Finally, no application is guaranteed admittance; this is based upon the discretion of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.

How Does One Apply?

First, it is critical to review the checklist and attached application guide to understand all of the instructions. Then, all of the documents previously mentioned should be compiled. Further clarity can be found in the "Supporting Documents" section of the application itself. All of the necessary federal and provincial forms will need to be completed. Before submitting these forms and the required documents, it is always a good idea to perform a thorough review.

Once these preliminary steps have been completed, the application process can be finalised online via the SINP Internet portal. All documents should be uploaded, scanned and modified into PDF format. If any documentation is seen to be missing, the SINP will initially reject the application and the individual will be presented with instructions in regards to what else needs to be presented. Additionally, each form should be physically retained should it be required in the future.

Other Concerns

Furthermore, there are a number of federal and provincial forms which need to be downloaded and filled out. While this list is comprehensive, it can also vary from person to person. The details within the application guide will help to clarify many questions. For anyone seeking a list of these documents or to address the most frequently asked questions, the applicant can visit if you wish to represent yourself. The bottom of the page contains links to all of the official documents as well as a compendium of some of the most frequently asked questions.  However nothing can substitute using a professional Immigration Agent with over 20 years experience winning cases just like yours.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
