Please note that on January 1, 2015 the way that Canada accepts permanent residents has changed. The new system, called Express Entry, represents a change in method rather than in requirements.
The Saskatchewan Students category is for students who have graduated from a post-secondary educational institution in the province and have worked in Saskatchewan for at least six months under a work permit in the field of their study. The Students category allows international students to obtain permanent residency in the province sooner than applying through the federal skilled worker program. This page is currently being updated.
If you are unsure whether you qualify for immigration to Canada under the Saskatchewan Students provincial nominee program, book a consultation with one of our qualified immigration consultants.
