In a bid to address the labor market shortages, the federal government has raised the cap of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) by 775.
Notably, 5,500 nominations will be accepted by the Saskatchewan Government in 2015, a 16 % increase over previous year.
The added nominations will be made through the new Saskatchewan Express category of the SINP's, which will be declared on 2 January 2015 along with the new express entry system, which will be launched by the federal government.
Apparently, the SINP will start accepting applications under this new category beginning 2015. The new express entry application system will allow it to select candidates from a pool and invites them to apply for permanent residence.
The Minister Responsible for Immigration, Jeremy Harrison said that the increase in acceptance of number of applicants will reap certain benefits, including fast-tracking the processing of permanent residence applications and creating a new path for businesses looking to address acute labor market shortages through the recruitment of overseas workers.
The province anticipates that the nomination of 5,500 people in 2015 will result in 14,000 new arrivals to the province along with their family members. And, the government is planning to raise the number of SINP places to 6000 by 2020.
