What Do the Migrants Say about Choosing Saskatchewan as a Destination?

In recent years, more and more immigrants are moving to the cities of Saskatchewan, the province that is known to be the “Land of Living Skies”. As a central part of the country, it has a continental climate, i.e. hot and humid in summer, and cold in winter.

With beautiful lakes, thousands of miles long rivers, and green forests full of wildlife, it is a place adorned with nature.

There are many important reasons why Saskatchewan attracts migrants. We have listed it down for you!

  • Culture and Diversity

The province has a diverse culture, comprising many communities. The largest ethnic group is German, followed by English, Irish, Scottish, Indian, and Chinese.

In the cities, you would experience the joys of vibrant arts and culture scene that draws visitors as well as migrants. Especially, the capital Regina has many art galleries, theatre and dance clubs and societies.

  • Economy

The province offers a great economic opportunity, quality of life, and affordable cost of living. The average income for residents in Saskatchewan is around the Canadian average i.e $77,300. The province captures 2nd place in the list of highest household income, next to Alberta and followed by Ontario and British Columbia.

Do not be confused, this is the avg. after-tax income for a household of two or more. Moreover, Regina is among the Canadian cities with the strongest economies and lowest unemployment rates.

In recent years, there are a lot of investments in the extraction of natural resources. That is why the province houses many big manufacturing industries (ex: EVRAZ Regina, one of the largest steel companies in Canada). Even so, a lot of local citizens leaving Regina to elsewhere, due to this draining of talents, there are so many projects with an insufficient workforce.

The severity is to such an extent that employers in Regina and Saskatoon (biggest city) are dependent on temporary workers and migrants.

  • Education and Healthcare

The province has advanced health care and education options, making it a worthy contender among the province for newcomers to settle.

Not only primary and secondary schools but the province of Saskatchewan has also 19 colleges. The University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina are recognized to be the top institutes in Canada.

  • Help to Settle in Province

Saskatchewan has many publicly-funded social programs that make a major contribution to maintaining high standards of living for all residents. You will also have access to many provincial organizations (specially designed for migrants) who provide free facilities after immigration, such as helping in finding a job or a property etc.
