Who is Eligible?
Eligible individuals fall under 3 categories.
This category is meant for skilled workers falling under 3 sub-categories or streams namely Employment Offer, Occupations in Demand, or Saskatchewan Express Entry streams.
Employment Offer Stream is meant for applicants who have received a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer in National Occupational Classification (NOC) occupation levels A, B, or 0 and whose skill is licensed by the relevant Saskatchewan regulatory body. The Occupations In-Demand stream is meant for individuals who do not have a job offer, but who are nonetheless highly skilled in an occupation that is in-demand in the province.
This category is meant for individuals who are currently living and working in the province and who want to get permanent residence status. It is divided into 5 streams namely Existing Work Permit, Health Profession, Long Haul Truck Driver, Student, and Hospitality Sector streams.
As the name suggests, this category is meant for entrepreneurs and farmers who want to invest in Saskatchewan. The 2 streams under this category are Entrepreneurs and Farm Owners and Operators streams.
Using a Lawyer to Help with SINP Immigration
The requirements for each sub-category are very specific and can be complicated for an untrained and inexperienced person. As an example, a minimum investment of $300,000 CAD in Regina or Saskatoon business or $200,000 CAD in other Saskatchewan communities is required the Saskatchewan Entrepreneur Program. The applicant must own and control at least 33.3% of the equity in the Saskatchewan business he/she has invested in, or should have invested at least $1 million, in which case the equity stake can be lower.
