According to Saskatchewan’s Immigration Minister Jeremy Harrison, the province wants to gain more control over its immigration system. The province of Saskatchewan is attempting to negotiate a new bilateral immigration agreement with the federal government similar to that utilized by Quebec. Saskatchewan has proposed the Canada-Saskatchewan Immigration Accord, which would give the province unilateral control over economic class immigration, family class immigration, federal settlement funding, and a set PNP amount that corresponds to Saskatchewan’s demographic weight in Canada. Saskatchewan’s current PNP quota is 6,000 principal applicants for 2022. However, the province wants 13,000 spots.
