Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe Suggests To Increase In Immigration Levels In The Province

We are not short of jobs. We are short of people”, said Premier Scott Moe of Saskatchewan, Canada in his recent address during the event Luncheon with Moe, hosted by the Saskatchewan Chambers of Commerce. 

The address called on the business community in the province to hire more immigrants. Saskatchewan is planning to create new 100,000 jobs by 2030 and invite more immigrants to grow its population to 1.4 million from the current 1.1 million. 

However, this would be possible only if SINP had more control over the intake of applicants. The Premier proposed a partnership with the federal government of Canada to increase provincial intake targets to over 13,000 new permanent residents annually. 

He envisioned a provincial deal with the federal government much similar to Quebec, providing more autonomy to Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) to invite more foreign skilled people to address their local demand. 

Apart from the control of economic-class immigrants under SINP, the new deal could also give more control for family-class immigration, said Premier Moe.

More PNP intakes than Express Entry in 2023

Saskatchewan has expectations to meet and exceed the cap of 6,000 under the Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program. The province expects that international recruitment may be delayed without the increase of the federal cap.

But with the new immigration levels plan 2023-25 making Canada PNP the leading economic-class intake program, we could expect a rise in the SINP’s intake cap.  

Canada has recognized that provincial governments are in the best position to respond to local labor market necessities with new immigrants. Even during the peak of the pandemic, IRCC’s Express Entry draws invited only eligible candidates with prior provincial nominations to apply for Canadian permanent residency. 

Qualifying for Upcoming Saskatchewan PNP Draws

In order to be considered for nominations under the upcoming Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) draws, candidates must register their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the provincial authority. 

Candidates must demonstrate their commitment to meaningfully settling in Saskatchewan by demonstrating their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.

All the invited candidates must have valid Educational Credential Assessments.

Additionally, candidates already in the federal Express Entry pool need to register another EOI and choose Saskatchewan. 

Route to Canada PR 

On successfully receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination, candidates are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. It will effectively guarantee an ITA for Canada PR in the subsequent Express Entry draw conducted by IRCC.
