I. What is the SINP?
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is an immigration program that
the province administers. It operates under an agreement with the federal government.
This program can provide a quicker means of entry into Canada; it allows Saskatchewan
to nominate applicants to the federal government for landed immigrantstatus. The SINP
offers:




Applicant selection based on the province’s economic and labour force needs
Application processing times that are faster than other federal immigration classes
Provincial immigration officers who can explain the program and help applicants,
employers and supporting family members

What is the SINP Family Members Category?
The SINP created the FamilyMembers Category for immigrant families living in
Saskatchewan who want to help their family members live and work in the province.
Supporting family members must provide settlement assistance to applicants and their
dependents, which may include financial support.

How the SINP Works
Two-Step Immigration Process
Step 1: Apply to the SINP office for nomination.



The SINP immigrationbranch reviews your application.
If approved, the SINP immigration branch will:
 Send a nomination certificate to Citizenship and Immigration Canada
(CIC)
 Send a nomination letter to you explaining how to forward your
application to the appropriate CIC visa office

Step 2: Apply to CIC with your SINP nomination.
