Saskatchewan has implemented a new subcategory of the federal express entry program that is intended for new immigrants to Canada interested in living in Saskatchewan specifically. Those who wish to be considered should ensure they designate Saskatchewan as their province of choice when applying to be ranked in the federal express entry pool. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program will then select and nominate qualified candidates, inviting them to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
To be eligible, one must have an express entry profile number and job seeker validation code. As well, applicants must provide accurate and honest information when creating their profile. Those found in violation may have their nomination cancelled and, further, could face a bar on resubmission from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The province of Saskatchewan has created a helpful application guide for potential candidates to peruse prior to applying which can be found on their website. It is imperative that those who wish to apply understand the qualifying criteria so that their profile matches the specific needs of Saskatchewan’s labour market.
