Experience Saskatchewan as a Permanent Resident Starting January 2014
Posted on November 19, 2013 | Canada

Saskatchewan wants immigrants and starting next year, the provincial government has simplified its nomination program towards permanent residency into just three main categories.  One of them is the Saskatchewan Experience Category (SEC), similar to the federal permanent residency program called the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).


Why Saskatchewan?

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) provides a quicker alternative to enter as a permanent resident to Canada.  There is no deadline to apply to the SINP.  However, program criteria may change without notice and your application will be assessed according to the criteria in place at the time we receive your complete application.
Right now, the criteria are simple, but generous particularly to those who have been in Saskatchewan in the five identified categories.


The SINP offers:

  • The ability to select applicants whose skills and abilities best fit the province's needs;
  • Application processing times that are faster than other federal immigration classes; and
  • Assistance from Provincial Immigration Officers who are readily available to explain program requirements and processes.

Saskatchewan Experience Category

This category is geared towards individuals who are currently living and working in the province. It will consist of the following five sub-categories:

  1. Existing Work Permit
  2. Health Professionals
  3. Hospitality Sector Pilot Project
  4. Long Haul Truck Drivers
  5. Students (see changes below)
  • The Post Graduation Work Permit and Master’s and PhD Graduate sub-categories, which are currently operating under the SINP, will be combined to create one general Students sub-category;
  • Graduates from a Saskatchewan school must have a skilled job offer in the province that is relevant to their education, or a job offer requiring a post-secondary education. They must work in the province for 6 months before applying; and
  • Graduates from a school outside of Saskatchewan must have a skilled job offer in the province that is relevant to their education, and must work in Saskatchewan for two years before applying.

Until December 31, 2013, applications from an additional 250 out-of-province graduates and an additional 150 Saskatchewan graduates will be accepted for review.
