Is it easy to get PR in Saskatchewan?
Saskatchewan is considered one of the easiest provinces to immigrate to thanks to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). This program is aimed at potential residents who have the skills, education, or work experience that the province needs.
In addition, the PNP Saskatchewan immigration grid only requires you to score 60/100 points, which is somewhat lower than other provinces.
How do I appeal my immigration decision in Saskatchewan?
You have thirty days from the date of your denied application or removal order to appeal the decision. You’ll want to retain a lawyer immediately ot make sure you put your best foot forward as you file your appeal.
Your lawyer will help you determine the reason why your application was denied or the reasoning behind your removal order. This will help us gather the evidence that we’ll need to help you defend your right to remain in Canada, or to enter the country.
How long does an appeal take in Saskatchewan?
You can expect the appeals process to take 6 months to two years. After you file your initial appeal, the Immigration authorities will have 45 days to respond with all of the reasons why your application was denied or your removal is being sought.
From there, your case may go through the Alternative Dispute Resolution process, which can take up to nine months. If that process is unsuccessful, you will be assigned a hearing date in 12 to 18 months.
Your immigration lawyer will work with you so that you know what you can and can’t do in the meantime, and will help you gather up all the evidence you need to strengthen your case.
