The International Skilled Worker Occupations In-Demand sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) permits skilled workers with involvement in an in-demand occupation in Saskatchewan to make an application for a provincial nomination certificate, which may then be trailed by an application for Canadian permanent residence. Candidates don’t require a job offer to make an application.

The SINP sub-category has been revived on various occasions in 2016, the last time being on August 30, when the application admissions were filled inside two or three days.
