Saskatchewan Skilled Worker with Existing Work Permit Application Process
The Saskatchewan Skilled Worker with Existing Work Permit stream is open to eligible candidates on an ongoing basis, with no specified application period. Applications may be submitted through the SINP Online Portal, and there is no fee associated with the application process.
Upon approval of the application, Saskatchewan will provide the candidate with official notification of their selection for provincial nomination via email. The candidate will then have six months to submit their application for Canadian permanent residency.
Once a candidate has received a provincial nomination, they are eligible to submit a federal application for Canadian permanent residency. The application must be completed on paper and submitted by mail to the designated application center. The processing time for paper-based PNP applications for permanent residency is generally 18 months.
