What is Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program?

SINP stands for Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program. The program invites applications every year from individuals belonging to different categories who are willing to relocate to and settle in Saskatchewan, Canada. The application is for people who aren’t a citizen of Canada. Under the program, the applicants deemed eligible by Saskatchewan will be nominated and recommended to the government for obtaining a permanent residency in the country. The government then invites the applicants to apply which is known as ITA or Invite to Apply.

Although, Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program is just one way via which people can obtain a Permanent Resident status in the country. It is recommended that people should also apply via IRCC (Immigration Refugees & Citizenship Canada).

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program is sought after because of its benefits. The program streamlines the application process for individuals. Under the program, the processing times for applications are way better. Applicants also get an appointed officer from the province who can guide you through the process and the requirements. It should be noted that there is a cap on how many applicants are allowed each year. And usually, the caps get filled within hours of opening each time.

How it affects the competitive ranking system for Immigrating to Canada?

CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System is an important part of the Express Entry architecture. The competitive ranking system is a ranking system under which certain points are allocated to desirable traits of the applicants. Under the new opening of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, the eligible candidates stand to gain 600 points for their competitive ranking system. This puts them in a prime position for getting an invite to apply.

The program is coveted amongst the applicants because of faster processing and entry. But, the cap means the applications might close early this time as well.
