Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program
To be considered for the Family Referral Category, you must:
- Be between 18 – 49 years old at time of your application.
- Have a signed affidavit of support (SINP 500-22) from your supporting household in Saskatchewan.
- Have completed post-secondary education, training, or apprenticeship of at least one year in length that has resulted in a diploma, a certificate or a degree.
- Have at least one year of work experience in the past ten years in your intended occupation (your employment offer in Saskatchewan).

- Have sufficient language proficiency in one or both of the official languages in Canada.
Who Can Be a Supporting Household in Saskatchewan?
Supporting family members include:
- first cousins
- step-family members / in-laws of the same relationship
The supporting family member of your supporting household must meet the following requirements:
- Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada at the time that your application is submitted to the SINP;
- Prove that Saskatchewan has been their principal residence for a minimum of one year;
- Prove their genealogical family relationship to you or your spouse; and
- Be self-supporting (have reliable income from employment or self-employment;
- have not received financial support through the Saskatchewan Assistance Plan, Employment Insurance, or the Resettlement Assistance Program within the last six months
When you apply to the SINP Family Referral Category, you must indicate if the supporting household is already supporting other applicants to the SINP. If the supporting household has previously supported a family member they must show that the applicant has economically established in Saskatchewan. If that person has not yet established themselves, they may not be able to be a supporting household.
Applying for a provincial nomination can be a long and arduous process especially with respect to processing times. You will want to make sure that the application you submit has the best possible chance for success so as to not have your application further delayed due to an unsatisfied officer.
