NOMINEE PROGRAM

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)

If you have been thinking about migrating to Canada, then you must be aware of the Express Entry Program. The program follows a points-based approach where each eligible candidate is assigned a CRS score. The highest-scoring applicants are then invited to apply for the Canada PR Visa.

Many people check their score on the CRS calculator and feel disheartened when their score is not very high. They feel that they are not scoring enough Canada PR points. But is Express Entry the only way to migrate to Canada? The answer is No.

Consider applying through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program. The upside about this program is that it does not use your CRS score. Read on to know more.

What is the SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program)?

The SINP is the provincial nominee program of the province of Saskatchewan in Canada. It is one of the best immigration programs for people who do not meet the requirements of the Express Entry Program.

  • International Skilled Worker- Saskatchewan Express Entry
