The latest draw for Saskatchewan’s Entrepreneur stream, an important component of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), is the largest such draw to take place since the stream for more than two years.
The October 31 draw resulted in 265 international entrepreneurs being invited to apply to the program. Candidates in the unique ‘Expression of Interest’ pool for this program who had 80 or more points were invited to apply. This cut-off threshold is the joint-lowest in the history of the program.
The government of Saskatchewan refers to this stream as the SINP Entrepreneur Program, and through this program successful applicants can start, obtain or partner in a business in Saskatchewan and be actively involved in managing it, while residing in province with their accompanying family members, if applicable. Successful applicants first obtain a work permit, allowing them to work in Saskatchewan, before applying for permanent residence after fulfilling the terms of a Business Performance Agreement.
