In a bid to simplify and make useful for immigrant businessmen to establish set-ups in the province of Saskatchewan, modifications have been implemented to the SINP or Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
According to the minister responsible for immigration, jobs, skills and training, Jeremy Harrison, five applicant areas have been incorporated into the farmer owner or operator streams and entrepreneur streams. These streams include science and technology, large scale investor, entrepreneur, farm and young farmer. These streams expedite the process for applicants.
These streams require a 75,000 dollar good-faith deposit that would go towards permanent settlement and start-up expenses. The applications will now have to be filled online and is based upon points. These points rank the applicants while giving weightage to factors like proven experience in the area of entrepreneurship, as well as the net worth.
