Saskatchewan offers an opportunity to immigrate to Canada without a job offer

Explore the number of immigration options to Canada through SINP

Even if you do not have a job offer, you may be qualified for one of two immigration routes if you want to live and work in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is one of many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) that provide immigration opportunities to overseas candidates who do not have a work offer.

While the Express Entry procedure is the most prevalent immigration route in Canada, the PNP is another option. Express Entry is based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which gives points based on human capital factors. While Express Entry candidates do not need a job offer in most cases, however, having one will result in a significantly higher number of points and, as a result, a greater chance of being invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada.

The PNP in Canada, on the other hand, was created to ensure a more balanced distribution of immigration benefits across the country. Participating provinces and territories can propose a fixed number of economic immigrants for a permanent residency each year. You must first be nominated by a province or territory to enter Canada under PNP.

The process to enter SINP without a job offer

Saskatchewan is one of nine Canadian provinces and two territories that participate in the PNP. Saskatchewan is a province in Western Canada that is known for its prairies. Agriculture and natural resource sectors like forestry and fisheries drive the province's economy. It also plays a significant part in producing and delivering agricultural goods required by the world's fastest-growing economies.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) offers immigration routes to Canada. Saskatchewan nominates non-Canadians who want to settle in the province through the SINP and offers successful candidates the option to become permanent residents of Canada. Two particularly busy provincial nomination streams that do not need employment offers among the several streams are handled under the SINP and those are, the Saskatchewan Express Entry-linked stream, which requires applicants to have an active profile in the federal Express Entry system and the Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand category.

Express Entry is an improved PNP, which implies it is linked to the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry applicants who get a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan earn 600 points added to their CRS score. This prize assures them the opportunity to seek permanent residency in Canada. Candidates must build an Express Entry profile and express their interest in settling in Saskatchewan to be eligible for an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination under this stream.

The Saskatchewan Occupation In-Demand, which does not need an Express Entry profile. The program is intended to introduce skilled individuals to address labor market gaps. A candidate must have at least one year of work experience in one of the occupations on Saskatchewan's Occupations In-Demand list to be eligible. Saskatchewan extends invites through these two channels on a regular basis. This year, 2,733 Saskatchewan Express Entry applicants and 3,433 Occupations In-Demand candidates have been invited. In all, 6,166 invites have been given in 2021 through these two streams. This is comparable to the number of invites granted by Ontario through its Human Capital Priorities Stream, another PNP stream that does not need a job offer and is one of the most active in the country.
