Saskatchewan is known as the Land of Living Skies most notably because the sky here is constantly lit up with a beautiful light display with bright orange and pink colours during sunset and clear blue daytime skies.
How does Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program Work?
Your first step is to qualify under one of the four categories offered by this program
- International Skilled Worker Category is for skilled workers abroad who want to work and live in Saskatchewan.
- Saskatchewan Experience Category is for foreign nationals who are currently living and working in Saskatchewan.
- Entrepreneur Category is for entrepreneurs who plan to start a business in Saskatchewan.
- Farm Category is for experienced farmers who plan to buy and operate a farm in Saskatchewan.
The first step is to apply to the province under one of these categories and then make a federal permanent residency application once you have been nominated by the province. Depending on the category, you either complete and submit the provincial and federal applications together or in the case of Express Entry, once Saskatchewan nominates you on your profile, you accept the nomination and wait for the next round of invitations issued by IRCC.
