The province of Saskatchewan invited 64 entrepreneurs under the SINP
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) conducted the fourth invitation round in the Entrepreneur Program in 2022 on July 7, 2022.
In this round, SINP invited 64 candidates. The highest Expression of Interest (EOI) score for this round was 130 points. The average score was 95 points. The lowest score was 80, and those applicants were invited to apply only if they scored a CLB level of 4 or higher in English or French.
In 2022, Saskatchewan has already invited 227 entrepreneurs. Under the SINP, an applicant can apply to three program categories. These are the:
International Skilled Worker (for skilled workers who want to work and live in Saskatchewan)
Saskatchewan Experience (for foreign nationals who already live and work in Saskatchewan)
Entrepreneur and Farm (for those who plan to start a business or buy and operate a farm in Saskatchewan)
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is a way to immigrate to Canada. Through the SINP, the province of Saskatchewan invites residency applications from non-Canadians who want to make Saskatchewan their home.
The province also nominates successful applicants to the federal government for permanent residency in Canada. However, one of the steps toward becoming a permanent resident in Saskatchewan is only through the SINP.
Applicants who have been approved for residency must also apply through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Canadian Immigration Commission.
