Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

Saskatchewan, situated in the heart of Canada, is renowned for its vast prairies and expansive fields. It is an ideal destination for newcomers to Canada, offering a cost-effective lifestyle and a diverse, culturally rich community.

Saskatchewan is very successful with immigration. The province welcomes between 3,000 and 4,000 newcomers each year. That number has now grown to 15,000. This is especially impressive considering that Saskatchewan’s population is just over 1 million. The province is one of Canada’s most popular destinations for newcomers.
