Thanks to the new online application system for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), highly skilled foreign workers will now find it quicker and easier to come to Saskatchewan, find work and become permanent residents.
The province of Saskatchewan officially launched an improved online application system for SINP, which was given a boost earlier in the year with the addition of the new Saskatchewan Express Entry category.
The Saskatchewan Express Entry category will add 775 additional immigrant nominees to the SINP, bringing the total number of SINP nominations up to 5,500 for 2015. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has committed to processing these applications within six months or less, making the new category an attractive option for potential immigrants.
This will allow 775 new positions for Saskatchewan, allowing primarily high-skilled, well-educated individuals with significant work experience and high language skills to move more expeditiously through the system.
Applicants selected under the Saskatchewan Express Entry system will have their applications processed in six months, compared with one to four years under the old “first-come, first-served” application system. The new system will nominate only the most qualified and experienced individuals to apply to the SINP, thereby reducing application backlogs.
The new online application system makes the Saskatchewan Express Entry more accessible. As it’s not a paper-based system, individuals can apply from around the world, so they don’t have to go to an embassy or consulate in another part of the world. Applicants can fill out the application online and have it processed in a timely fashion.
