Premier Scott Moe announced his government has approached the federal government about increasing the province’s control over immigration. Saskatchewan published an ambitious Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan to grow its population to 1.4 million people with 100,000 more people working by 2030. Since 2007, the number of new Canadians who arrived in the province through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) each year has grown from 1,837 to 11,109 people. Saskatchewan plans to increase the number of immigrants via the SINP and especially international students who have graduated from Saskatchewan institutions. The plan also sets a target to achieve an 85% immigration retention rate by 2030.
