No job offer? No problem.

You could still get your permanent residency through Saskatchewan’s Provincial Nomination Program (SINP).  But acting fast based on data obtained about the labour market shortage and outlook in the province is the key.

Every year, the government of Saskatchewan accepts a maximum number of applicants in each category for SINP.

No Job Offer? No Problem. Just Act Fast.

Important, Official Information from the Saskatchewan Government

2. How To Apply

There is a choice of three SINP categories you can apply to. You will also have to complete the federal application forms at the same time. 

It is recommended that you read the application guide for detailed instructions. International students and foreign workers already in the province enjoy an edge since they already have access to employers they intend to work for, or get a job offer in support of a residency application through the provincial or federal government routes.

“After you’ve applied to the SINP and your nomination has been approved and sent to IRCC's Centralized Intake Office, SINP can provide a letter of support for a Temporary Work Permit. This will allow you (the approved applicant) and your accompanying family members to move to Saskatchewan.  If the permit is approved by IRCC, you’ll be able to start working or preparing your business operations while your permanent resident visa is being processed. “

The most recent list of occupations in demand in Saskatchewan is shown below.  The nomination had already closed.  Get ready for the next one by getting the data on labour market shortages (to check which industries need what type of occupations), obtain your English and/or French language proficiency exam and your academic credentials (qualifications) evaluated.

Good luck, Kavisas.
