Long-Haul Truck Drivers

This sub-category allows trucking firms to bring long-haul truck drivers to Saskatchewan. To qualify for this project, long-haul truck drivers:
  • Must begin working for an approved trucking firm in Saskatchewan on a temporary foreign work permit.
  • If an approved trucking firm offers permanent employment, the trucker may apply to the SINP for permanent resident status after at least six months employment.
  • Meet the sub-category criteria. Criteria can change at any time, but we'll use what was on this website when we received your complete application.

Eligibility

To apply for SINP nomination through this sub-category, you must:

  • Be working for an SINP-approved Saskatchewan trucking firm for at least six months on a temporary work permit. The permit must be issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and based on a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Service Canada;
  • Have a current Saskatchewan Class 1A driver's licence;
  • Have an offer of full-time, permanent employment from your employer which must be an approved trucking firm in Saskatchewan; and,
  • Have at least Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) 4 or higher English language ability in all four categories (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
