An Overview of SINP – How it Works?
SINP, being one of the most popular immigration pathways, offers different streams to workers, investors, and others. The eligibility requirements and application procedure differ for each stream. Candidates must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the program in order to apply for the SINP.
After applying, they will be evaluated using a points system called the SINP points calculator. Those who satisfy the requirements are invited to submit an application for provincial nomination. Later, candidates can apply for Canada PR with the Canadian federal government after receiving a nomination from the SINP. If you get the invitation to any of these two streams, you need to submit your application within 60 days.
