What Is The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is one of the ways of immigrating to Canada. Saskatchewan is one of the fast-growing provinces in Canada in terms of its economy and population. This province welcomes thousands of people from all over the world every year. SINP was established in 1998. It is a program that allows the province to select qualified immigrants (those who meet the province’s labour market needs) to reside and work in the province as permanent residents.
