Through the SINP-B Entrepreneur Program, you and your family can start, obtain or partner in a business in Saskatchewan and be actively involved in managing it, while residing in Saskatchewan.
In order to apply to the SINP-B, a prospective applicant must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and receive an invitation from the SINP-B to apply. The EOI is an official submission which will become a part of an applicant’s future Nomination Application. Periodically the SINP-B will select the highest scoring applicants from the EOI pool and issue them an Invitation to Apply (ITA).
The SINP-B will regularly conduct draws to invite candidates from the selection pool for each category to apply. The number and frequency of invitations to apply is based on annual nomination allocations and the SINP-B’s processing capacity to ensure timely processing of applications.
The most recent SINP-B Entrepreneur pool draw was conducted on October 31, 2017 with 265 ITA’s issued and a lowest selection score of 80.
We put together a summary of the round of invitations during 2016/2017, along with the number of candidates that will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). This summary report will give applicants an indication of their potential for receiving an ITA in the future. An applicant may strive to further increase their points, such as conducting an Exploratory Visit to Saskatchewan or enhancing their language proficiency through language training.
