Canadian Immigration Podcast: Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program

If you are a foreign national planning on immigrating to the Province of Saskatchewan or a human resource manager seeking a way to retain your key Saskatechawan based foreign workers... this Episode is for you.

Canadian immigration lawyer Scott Bell shares some amazing insight on the inner workings of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program from an employer perspective and also touches on some of the unique Provincial regulations that impact on an employer's ability to recruit foreign workers to work in Saskatchewan.

The various PNPs across the country offer some very unique and focused opportunities for foreign nationals seeking to immigrate to Canada. In most cases these PNPs have very unique requirements that distinguish themselves from the other PNPs. When trying to understand the inner workings of the various PNPs, the best place to go is excellent immigration lawyers like Scott Bell who actually live and practice within the Province of that Provincial Nominee Program.


In this Episode of the Podcast, Scott shares some great insight on the program, its history, and some of the best programs available for foreign workers seeking to immigrate to the Province of Saskatchewan. The information he provides is extremely valuable in helping to demystify some of the more idiosyncratic aspects of the SINP.

By listening to what Scott has to say in this Podcast, you will most definitely avoid some of the significant pitfalls people commonly run into when apply to immigrate to Canada through the SINP. One thing is for certain...although the process seems easy and the government goes out of their way to tell everyone they do not need to hire an immigration lawyer, engaging someone like Scott to help you navigate the SINP is money well spent.
