Saskatchewan Immigrant Provincial Nominee Program
The Saskatchewan PNP, better known as the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) can potentially provide an easier and/or expedited means of entry into Canada. Saskatchewan reserves and retains the right to nominate eligible applicants to the federal government for landed immigrant status.
Some of the streams of the SINP have imposed application caps. A quick consultation of the SINP website will provide an updated list of caps and determine if your program is still accepting applications.
