Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) Invites 621 Tech Candidates

Saskatchewan’s Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invites 621 candidates to apply, the largest SINP draw since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike many other provincial immigration programs, SINP does not require a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer. 

On September 15, Saskatchewan sent out 621 invitations to eligible candidates in the SINP Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry streams of their provincial nominee programs. Only candidates with work experience in select technology fields were included in this specific SINP draw.

In order to be eligible, candidates must have an Expression of Interest (EOI) application with the Saskatchewan government and score a minimum of 68 points on the SINP points assessment grid.
