Saskatchewan Experience: Students

Saskatchewan Experience Students
Saskatchewan Experience is a collection of five Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program immigration streams (SINP). It is aimed at foreign nationals with prior work experience from a Saskatchewan employer and a legitimate job offer for permanent employment. The Student streams are one of them.

Successful applicants in any of these Saskatchewan streams will get an official provincial nomination from Saskatchewan which qualifies candidates for Canadian permanent residence status.
What are the minimum eligibility requirements for this stream?
Here are the minimum eligibility requirements that applicants must meet to reach eligibility within this stream:

For students who finished their studies inside of Saskatchewan:

Candidates for this stream must have graduated from an accredited post-secondary institution in Saskatchewan and hold either a certificate, a diploma, or a degree.

They also need to have a specified level of work experience in Saskatchewan in addition to the education requirement. Candidates must particularly demonstrate that they have at least 6 months of full-time, paid job experience in Saskatchewan.
This job experience can be obtained during their education or after graduation while on a work permit. Candidates for this stream should have a valid post-graduate work permit that allows them to work in Canada.

Employment Offer
Candidates for this program should have a job offer from a Saskatchewan employer.

This offer of employment must:

  • be for a permanent, full-time position in the candidate’s relevant field of study;
  • fall under either National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B, or designated trade occupations with NOC Codes starting with 72, 73, 82,92, 632, or 633; or
  • have an employment offer that is relevant to a person’s field of study that requires post-secondary education.

It’s also worth noting that an employment offer is only regarded acceptable if it’s backed by a Letter of Offer from the employer and a Job Approval Letter from SINP.

An applicant’s employer need to register online through the SINP Online Portal in order to acquire a job approval letter. The post must also be submitted for review by SINP by the employer and if approved by SINP, the employer will obtain an official Job Approval Letter.

Language Ability
There is no language ability criterion if a candidate’s employment offer is for a job at NOC Skill Level 0, A, or B. However, should a candidate be offered a position at NOC Skill Level C, then they need to have valid language test results demonstrating competence comparable to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 or above.

Level of Education
Candidates should have completed at least one year of post-secondary study in Saskatchewan.

Work Experience
Candidates must have at least six months of full-time job experience in Saskatchewan, or the equivalent in part-time work.

How do I apply to this particular stream?
At all times, the Saskatchewan Students stream welcomes applications from qualified individuals. Those who are qualified for the program may apply through the SINP Online Portal with no costs whatsoever.

If the application is approved by the province, Saskatchewan will notify the applicant through email that they have been chosen for provincial nomination. In this step, the person is formally nominated by the province which makes 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. Applicants in this program must fill out and mail a paper-based application for permanent residence to the relevant application center.

Paper-based PNP applications for permanent residency are handled within 18 months on average.
