PR for NOC C or D. Saskatchewan is one of the fastest-growing economies and populations, because of the large number of immigrants, from all around the world. Its economy is based on mostly agriculture and natural resources like fishing and forestry.
Saskatchewan welcomes over 15,000 newcomers each year through various streams. So, if you are a semi-skilled (NOC C) or unskilled worker (NOC D) and want a Permanent Residency (PR) in Canada, Saskatchewan has got you covered.
Saskatchewan has a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) that helps semi-skilled workers already living and working there to get a Permanent Residence (PR) in Canada.
