As a part of the Canada skilled immigration program to bring more skilled immigrants from different countries, Saskatchewan has its immigration program called Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program. This PNP attracts immigrants who can contribute their best to the province. The program targets skilled workers, in-demand workers who have the ability to fill the gap in the labor market, applicants with job offers, and investors who wish to establish their business in the province.
Key Features of Saskatchewan PR Program
Saskatchewan is the most preferred province for migrants, as the application process of Saskatchewan PR program is easy compared to the procedures of other provinces. This provincial nominee program has two categories – Enhanced sub-category & Base sub-category.
The enhanced sub-category aligns with the Express Entry System to manage the Canada Permanent Resident applications. The applicants with a valid Express Entry profile will receive score points based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The applicant with the highest score will receive the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada Permanent Residence during an express entry draw.
For instance – if you have a valid express entry profile and are nominated under the PNP program, you will receive an extra 600 points in CRS. And this guarantees the receipt of ITA (Invitation to Apply) for applying to Canada PR.
Base category means – the applicants applying for Canada PR under the Saskatchewan PNP program without registering in the express entry pool. So, if they get nominated for the provincial nominee program, they need to contact the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) to apply for Canada PR.
