SINP Marks Two Decades Of Growing Saskatchewan

Released on September 18, 2018

New Canadians Welcomed At Citizenship Ceremony  

Today, 31 new Canadians took the Oath of Citizenship in front of family and friends at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building, completing their journey to become Canadian citizens.

The citizenship ceremony was hosted by the Ministry of Immigration and Career Training, and helps mark the 20th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).

“We are pleased to welcome these new citizens to the Canadian and Saskatchewan family, as we also take the time to recognize the role of immigration in creating opportunity and spurring growth in Saskatchewan,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Immigration has helped to enrich our province, bringing in new residents to live, work, raise families and start businesses here.”

About seven out of 10 newcomers immigrate to the province through the SINP program.  Between 2007 and 2017, more than 108,300 newcomers arrived in more than 400 communities across the province—77,300 of these were SINP nominees and their family members.

The SINP has contributed to strong outcomes for newcomers and the province, including:
  • The highest employment rate for newcomers in Canada. In 2017, the employment rate for new immigrants (less than five years in Canada) aged 25 to 54, was 76 per cent in Saskatchewan, compared to 70 per cent nationally.  The province has also consistently retained more than 80 per cent of its newcomers since 2007.
  • Population growth, with nearly 1.2 million people now calling Saskatchewan home—the highest in the province’s history.
