We continue to see the provincial and federal Government make significant changes to accommodate and retain international students to successfully transition for Temporary Residence to Permanent Resident in Canada.
Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced new Saskatchewan Graduate Temporary Measures for student applicants to the ( Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program) SINP whose employment or employment opportunities have been affected by COVID-19.
Program opens on March 22nd 2021 and will close on September 22nd or when 1000 applications have been received.
To qualify to apply for a provincial nomination through this measure, applicant must meet the following requirements.
Students living in Saskatchewan prior to September 1, 2020, that have graduated from a recognized post-secondary educational institution in Saskatchewan within the three years prior to application will be eligible; and,
Applicants must have legally lived in Saskatchewan for at least 24-months. This residency requirement can be cumulative but must be met within the most recent three-years; and
Applicants must meet minimum language requirements of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Level 7.
In addition to the above, applicant must have once of the following
An offer of employment from an approved Saskatchewan employer. This occupation must be in a NOC 0, A, B occupation or a NOC C occupation in Hospitality, Health, or Agriculture.
For those without an offer of employment, students can apply as a human capital applicant if they have education for an occupation that is not on Saskatchewan’s occupation exclusion list and settlement funds to support themselves economically as they search for a job. You must remain economically self-sufficient during the entire immigration process.
This is a great opportunity for qualifying applicant as it creates another pathway to PR that is not tied to the express entry system.
Applicant with out job offer in Saskatchewan can still apply to this program if they meet requirements.
