What is the SINP Entrepreneur Program?

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) administers the SINP Entrepreneur Program. Experienced business owners or senior business managers who seek to live in Saskatchewan are targeted by this stream. Successful candidates may launch a new business or buy an existing one and then start their day-to-day management duties. 

After managing a business successfully for 6 months the entrepreneur may be nominated for permanent residence status. Candidates can submit an expression of interest, after submitting a profile candidates are assigned a score based on the SINP entrepreneur ranking system. The candidates with the most competitive score are invited to submit an application for the Saskatchewan Entrepreneur Program.

  • Applications are processed in the order they are received once candidates are asked to apply.
  • Establishment of a business.
  • Nomination.
