First, you have to create an online application on the Saskatchewan Government website and enter your details.

SINP has total three categories with different subcategories:

  • International Skilled Worker
  • Entrepreneur and Farm
  • Saskatchewan Experience 

Once you choose the SINP category to apply for a Canadian PR visa, you will receive a file number upon application completion. In case you don't hear back from Saskatchewan, there is a possibility that the pre-screening of your application is in process.

Step 2: Application Pre-Screening

The next step is the pre-screening of your nomination application. This step is undertaken to ensure the accuracy and completeness of your application and to check required documentation.

In case there is any issue with your visa application, following things will happen:

  • You will be contacted via email with a list of missing documents attached; and
  • You will be informed to re-apply for the same

But, if your application and documentation found to be accurate and complete, the Saskatchewan government will further review it and take a look at your EOI points score.

Step 3: Application Review

In case there are no documents missing with your application, the Saskatchewan government will review your application on the basis of all the submitted information.

If the Saskatchewan government finds you to be the right candidate for their province, they'll approve your visa application.
