How to Apply to the SINP

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
  • Nominates successful applicants to the federal government for permanent residency in Canada

The SINP is only one of the steps toward becoming a permanent resident in Saskatchewan. All approved applicants must also apply for residency through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Canadian Immigration Commission.

SINP offers applicants:

  • Competitive application processing times
  • Assistance from provincial immigration officers who can explain requirements

The Government of Saskatchewan makes the final choice on SINP nominations. When successful candidates apply for permanent resident status with IRCC, they’ll be identified as SINP nominees.

You can apply to the SINP if you meet the program criteria. Be sure to complete accurate applications and provide valid documentation.

Important Information

As an applicant, you can choose to work with an immigration consultant. However, no immigration consultant is given an immigrant quota from the Province of Saskatchewan.

Live in Saskatchewan to Work

Work Permit and LMIA

LMIA stands for Labor Market Impact Assessment. LMIA is a document that an employer-based in Canada needs when hiring a foreign worker. This can only be done when the employer can prove that a local Canadian or a Permanent Resident is not available for the job. An approved or a positive LMIA document can be considered as a confirmation letter. Employers need to apply for LMIA and once they get the approval, they can hire a foreign worker for the job.

The worker in question will have to apply for a work permit once he or she gets an LMIA. Additionally, the foreign worker will also need a job offer letter from the employer, a copy of the LMIA, a contract, and the LMIA number. Once all the documents are submitted, the foreign worker will get a work permit.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, getting a work permit may take longer to process. See how the application may be affected.

Where to Look for Work

Job openings are usually advertised on websites, newspapers, job fairs, and community bulletin boards like every other country. Keep in mind that it is against the law to charge a potential employee for helping to find work. The Foreign Worker Recruitment and Immigration Services Act (FWRISA) protects every immigrant coming to Canada.

Job Websites

The following websites are updated with new job opportunities in Saskatchewan. Make sure you visit them regularly to stay updated:

  • Saskjobs.ca – the largest job portal in Saskatchewan showing job listings for entry-level, trade professionals, and management positions. All jobs are listed with occupation and region.
  • Health Careers in Saskatchewan – lists all health care jobs available in Saskatchewan Regional Health Authorities in addition to Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.

  • Cic Canada Jobs – unique Canada job portal developed to help job seekers find a suitable job in Canada. Finding a job in Canada suitable to your profile isn’t that easy, and the process of selecting right candidate is the toughest job for employers. Considering the fact that hiring candidates outside of Canada is a lengthy process we try to make it easy for employers. 

Employment Services

Before Your Arrival in Saskatchewan

It is a good idea to develop skills for job search and improve communication skills before you arrive in Canada. Settlement Online Pre-Arrival (SOPA) is a program that helps immigrants find a job easily in Saskatchewan and have a better understanding of the Canadian workplace. This allows you to come prepared for the workplace.

After Your Arrival in Saskatchewan

The following organizations can assist you in finding a job as well as provide information on available job opportunities.

  1. SaskJobs – Career Services efficiently matches the skills of workers with the available job requirements throughout the province. Additionally, new immigrants can get information about job opportunities as well as training and education.
  2. Regional Newcomer Gateways are centers that welcome newcomers to Saskatchewan and help them with information. Immigrants will find all the information they need to succeed with their move to Saskatchewan.

Gaining Canadian Work Experience

Immigrants with Canadian work experience will always have an edge over those who do not. Employers seek workers with Canadian work experience because they want to ensure their employees are familiar with how things are done in Canada. Customer interaction should be done in a way that is acceptable in the Canadian culture and handle equipment, which is commonly used in the country.

Getting Canadian work experience is not easy. However, it is achievable through:

  • Part-Time & Temporary Work – causal jobs that are less than 30 hours a week are part-time jobs. These can be done while studying or caring for the family. Temporary jobs will have a start and an end date and often be available in specific seasons. They are enough to get Canadian work experience and a good hourly wage.
  • Work Placement Programs – these opportunities provide immigrants to gain Canadian work experience, however, these are not paid jobs. This is a good way to gain valuable contacts for future job and business opportunities in Saskatchewan.
  • Transitional Jobs – these are temporary jobs but in the same field of study. They provide opportunities to get visible for employers and gain Canadian work experience. Commonly, individuals who are waiting for a permanent job opportunity or finishing a graduate program occupy transitional jobs.

Job Opportunities for Health Care Professionals

The following links provide a list of health care job opportunities:

  • Health Careers in Saskatchewan – the official recruitment agency for Saskatchewan that lists opportunities in regional health authorities and Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
  • Saskjobs.ca is the largest job-posting website in Saskatchewan.

Getting a Work Permit

Not being a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident makes it illegal for you to work in Canada without a work permit. Here is how to apply for a work permit:

Temporary Work Permit

  1. Secure a job in Saskatchewan.
  2. The employer will apply for LMIA if one is not available.
  3. Once the LMIA is available, the employer can send you a contract and a job offer letter.
  4. You need to apply for the work permit at IRCC by providing the offer letter, job contract, a copy of the LMIA, and the LMIA number.
  5. Once IRCC approves your application, you will be granted a work permit and you can work in Saskatchewan temporarily.

Working temporarily may not be a good option for many. Therefore, if you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for permanent residence through the SINP or Express Entry program.

Permanent Work Permit

When applying from outside Canada, the following steps can help you obtain a work permit and become a permanent resident in Saskatchewan:

  1. Look for a job in Saskatchewan that meets the eligibility criteria of the SINP International Skilled Worker Category.
  2. Apply through SINP and on meeting the criteria, you will be nominated through the SINP selection process. 
  3. A SINP nomination certificate will be required when applying for a work permit through LMIA.
  4. Once you get the work permit, you can legally move to Saskatchewan temporarily.
  5. The next step is the submission of the permanent residence application to IRCC through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
  6. After reviewing, IRCC will approve and issue a Permanent Resident Visa.

Accompanying Family Members

While you are working in Canada on a permanent work permit, your family can accompany you or visit you in Canada. However, if your spouse or children wish to work while they are in Canada, they must apply for their work permits.

Get more information from IRCC’s Help Centre on accompanying family members.

Most workplaces in Saskatchewan have similar rules and regulations. However, every occupation and employer will have a different set of rules for the workplace. Learn more about employee rights and responsibilities and what to expect on the job when working in Saskatchewan.
