Saskatchewan one of the popular provinces of Canada when it comes to immigration and permanent residency. It is evident from the number of people apply for Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) every year. The SINP is the popular PNP of the province of Saskatchewan, through which it invites skilled and talented people to be the permanent resident of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Well, the SINP don't directly provide any PR to the applicants, rather it nominate the candidates for Canadian permanent residency to IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) through its key streams, such, as Occupation in Demand (OID) streams.
