The Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Programme (SPNP), as the name suggests, is the PNP of the province in question. Via the plan, the soon-to-be immigrants, having the expertise and experience on the radar of the province, could be given nomination by the Saskatchewan Administration.

This is basically an endorsement from the provincial administration backing their movement to the country, and especially to Saskatchewan. Post nomination, they will obtain a Saskatchewan Provincial Nomination Certificate, and this will enable them to submit an application for Permanent Residence (PR) in the nation with the processing times that are quicker, vis-à-vis other Canadian immigration streams.

It is mandatory that the Saskatchewan PNP candidates plan to live in the province in case they decide to submit an application under this Canadian PNP.


Apart from the usual investment/business classes, the SINP runs these two classes for the skilled workers.

  • International Skilled Worker Category
  • Saskatchewan Experience Category


The candidates to this class can submit an application in case they live outside of the Maple Leaf Country, or from inside of it in case they have lawful status when they present their petition. It is compulsory that the aspirants under this class possess an offer for a full-time permanent job from a local Saskatchewan based firm/job-provider in any particular job or trade which comes under the NOC level “A”, “B” or “O”. Petitions for a chosen trade in the province are also qualified under this sub-category.

The aspirants are evaluated on the basis of a Points arrangement and can be provided with nomination under any of these three sub-classes. 

  1. International Skilled Worker - Employment Offer

It is for the trained manpower with a skilled employment offer from a local firm/job-provider.

  1. International Skilled Worker - Occupations In-Demand 

This sub-category is for the exceedingly trained employees with the relevant skills in an in-demand line-of-work in Saskatchewan, who do not still possess an offer of employment in the province.

  1. International Skilled Worker - Saskatchewan Express Entry

This sub-class allows the province to offer nomination to those who are already present in the Express Entry Pool of the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The applicants must also possess skilled employment experience in an in-demand profession in the province.


This class is for the overseas manpower that is presently residing in the province.

The class admits petitions under these sub-categories:

  1. Existing Work Permit 

It is for those who have been doing a job in the province for a period of not less than 6 months under a lawful work permit. It is mandatory for the candidates to have evidence of lawful position in the nation and not be refugee applicant when they present a petition. The candidates must also possess an offer for full-time permanent job in a job or trade inside the NOC levels “A” or “B”, or in a nominated trade inside the province, barring those trades in the Hospitality Sector Pilot Project.

  1. Health Professionals 

It is for those internationally-trained health professionals who have done a job as either a physician, a nurse, or in a different health occupation in the province for not less than 6 months.
