Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) declared its implementation of the International Graduate Entrepreneur Category on December 3, 2019.
Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said that this program of new rules would be an excellent opportunity for international students who have successfully mixed up with the communities in Saskatchewan and have blended in with the culture of this province as well.
This program is also hopefully going to create a better environment for immigrant graduates, along with generating more jobs as well. And will successfully attract several students all around the world to come to Saskatchewan and pursue their higher education here and ultimately settle onto creating a career as well.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) aids the province’s growth plan for 2020 to 2030 when it will focus on creating a better situation for immigrant students as well as enhance the job prospects there.
International students form a significant part of Saskatchewan’s economy and education. Every year the number of immigrant students coming there contributes a considerable portion in the economy of the province, and this plan is going to aid and enhance the whole situation as well.
Those who get selected will have to conduct business for at least a year and will have to own at least one-third of equity to become eligible for getting provincial nomination to get permanent residency.
Who Can Be Considered as Eligible?
Candidates for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) International Graduate Entrepreneur category should possess the following criteria:
- Candidate should be at least 21 years old.
- Candidate must have completed a relevant course or diploma degree for two years from a registered and known university in Saskatchewan.
- Candidate should have a post-graduation work permit with a minimum of two years of eligibility remaining.
- Candidate has resided in Saskatchewan at the time of their course duration.

- The candidate must graduate from a post-secondary institution that is registered or acclaimed by the Canadian federal government.
Distant learning programs and accelerated academic sessions are not eligible for this situation.
How Can a Candidate Apply?
The entire process requires the candidate to fulfil four successive categories to get nominated and selected through the International Graduate Entrepreneur Category.
1. Submit an Expression of Interest:
Applicants will firstly require giving an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the SINP. Selected people are awarded a score which is based on the EOI points grid and registered into the pool of candidates.
2. Invitation to Apply:
The maximum scoring people will be chosen from the EOI pool. Applicants who will complete the SINP’s assessment requirements will need to sign a Business Performance Agreement (BPA), which will be based on their previously submitted Business Establishment Plan (BEP).
3. Business Establishment:
Those who are selected on a relevant PGWP will then actively practice their sanctioned business. They must make their enterprise stand within the terms sketched in their BPA, and they must provide the BPA requirements before their PGWP expires.
After the needs of the BPA are met, candidates can go for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. Those who are chosen should carry on to meet the terms of their BPA when the permanent residence application process is conducted.
If any person close or sell their business after getting the SINP nomination and before getting the permanent resident status, their designation will be revoked in such cases.
