Saskatchewan Immigration Nomination (SINP) Family Referral

Posted in Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program

Saskatchewan Immigration Nomination

Canada has recently introduced the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This program exists based on agreements that have been made between the provinces and the federal government. Provinces are now offering a variety of lucrative categories for which applicants may obtain a nomination to that province. This nomination will work towards obtaining permanent resident status in Canada.

Essentially, the process is two steps. You first apply to a provincial program in order to obtain a provincial nomination. If you are successful in this, you will use this nomination to apply for permanent residence status through the federal government, Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program offers a family referral category. This category is for immigrant families living in Saskatchewan who want to help their skilled and educated family members come to work and live in the province.

Applicants must have a relative who has been living in Saskatchewan for at least one year. They must be willing to provide applicants with assistance during the immigration process and after they arrive in Saskatchewan. These relatives are called supporting family members.

In order to be eligible for the Saskatchewan Family Referral Program, you must:

  • Be between 18 - 49 years old.
  • Have a signed affidavit of support from your supporting family 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 10 years in your intended occupation (your employment offer in Saskatchewan).
  • Have an offer of full-time, permanent employment in Saskatchewan either in an occupation or trade in the NOC Matrix level "A" or "B", or in a designated trade in Saskatchewan.
  • Have sufficient language proficiency in one or both of the official languages in Canada.

There are also those who are considered ineligible for the application:

  • Refugee claimants in Canada claiming refugee status from the government of Canada.
  • Spouses or common-law partners may be supported by an alternative family member or apply under the CIC Family Class
  • Health Professionals currently working in Saskatchewan in their field

Things to Keep in Mind for the Saskatchewan Family Referral

Submitting an application to this program requires that you have family residing in Saskatchewan. Both the applicant and the family members of the supporting household must intend to remain in Saskatchewan.  An officer will assess the intentions to live, work and remain in Saskatchewan and your application for nomination may be refused if an officer is not satisfied that your intentions are true.

The following groups people qualify as supporting households:

  • parents
  • daughters/sons
  • sisters/brothers
  • aunts/uncles
  • nieces/nephews
  • first cousins
  • grandchildren
  • grandparents
  • step-family members / in- laws of the same relationship

The supporting family member of your supporting household must meet the following conditions:

  • 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;
  • 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

As the candidate your application will be assessed based on the following factors:

  • Education/Training Credentials
  • Work Experience Credentials
  • Regulatory or Licensing Credentials
  • Offer of Permanent Fulltime Employment from a Saskatchewan Employer
  • Have sufficient language proficiency in one or both of the official languages of Canada
  • Proof of family members living in Saskatchewan
  • Supporting household supporting evidence

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
