The SINP has not provided any information regarding the processing times for the Health Professionals and Hospitality Workers streams. In the Entrepreneur and Farm categories, the processing time for the Entrepreneur Applications was 2 weeks, while for the Entrepreneur Nominations, it was 4 weeks.

The Job Approval Process, the authorization for an employer to hire a foreign worker through the SINP, took 8 weeks for specified workers and 13 weeks for not specified workers.


SINP Application Processing Times

Each quarter, the processing time is updated (every three months). It displays how long it usually takes to finish an application throughout that quarter. For each category, the duration is indicated in weeks. Processing times are not always a reliable indicator for upcoming applications because they may fluctuate. An application’s processing time is calculated starting from the time it is first received. Anomalies are removed from averages, and typically comprise up the fastest and slowest 10% of applications, accordingly.


What is SINP?

There is a way to immigrate to Canada known as the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). The SINP is only one of the criteria to become a permanent resident of Saskatchewan. All selected candidates are required to submit a residency application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Canadian Immigration Commission. Through the SINP, the Saskatchewan Province:

  • invites non-Canadians who want to make Saskatchewan home to submit residency applications.
  • successfully considers candidates to the Canadian government for permanent residency.

The province has three different categories for its immigration streams:

  • Saskatchewan International Skilled Worker.
  • Saskatchewan Experience.
  • Saskatchewan Entrepreneur and Farm.
