As of April 1, 2017, applicants to two popular streams of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) will be required to pay an application fee of $300 CAD when submitting an application. The fee will be mandatory for applicants to the International Skilled Worker: Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category and the International Skilled Worker: Occupation In-Demand sub-category.

Both of these SINP sub-categories have opened for new applications on numerous occasions since they were introduced in 2015. Typically, intake quotas for these streams fill within a few days or even hours in some instances.

These sub-categories target newcomers who have work experience in an in-demand occupation. In addition to that, no job offer is required for either sub-category.

SINP International Skilled Worker: Express Entry

Through this enhanced sub-category, eligible candidates in the Federal Express Entry pool may apply for a provincial nomination certificate from Saskatchewan. A provincial nomination certificate through this sub-category gives the candidate 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and that the candidate will then be in line for selection at a subsequent draw from the pool.
