The job offer must be accompanied by a Letter of Offer from the declared employer as well as a Job Approval Letter from SINP in order to be considered valid. The applicant’s employer must sign up online through the SINP Online Portal in order to acquire a job approval letter.
The position must be submitted for evaluation by SINP by the employer and if the post is approved by SINP, the employer will obtain an official Job Approval Letter. The employment offer must be made by a SINP Hospitality-approved business.
Candidates for this stream should have valid language test results demonstrating proficiency in English comparable to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 or above.
The applicant should possess a Canadian high school diploma or a foreign equivalent for them to be considered for the Hospitality Sector Project stream.
Candidates must have a minimum of six (6) months of full-time experience in the same role and for the same employer as their legitimate employment offer.
How do I begin my application?
The Saskatchewan Hospitality Sector Project stream is always accepting submissions from qualified people. Those who are qualified for the program may apply through the SINP Online Portal at no cost whatsoever. f the application is approved by the province, Saskatchewan will tell the applicant via email that they have been chosen for provincial nomination.
At this step, the person is formally nominated by the province, making them eligible to file a federal application for Canadian permanent residency. An applicant has six months after getting a provincial nomination to submit a permanent residency application. They must also fill out and mail a paper-based application for permanent residence to the relevant application center.
In general, paper-based PNP applications for permanent residency are handled within 18 months.
