Saskatchewan’s Immigration Strategy

This document, released on June 18, 2009, outlines the provincial government’s proposed directions in terms of immigration to Saskatchewan.  There’s some interesting information to be found in this brochure.  For example, the numbers of immigrants arriving in Saskatchewan under the Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program are outlined on page 8.  A quick glance at the number of nominees arriving in 2005-2006 (434) compared to those projected to be arriving in 2009-2010 (3400) gives you some idea as to why Saskatchewan schools, educators, immigrant families, and universities are concerned about our ability to meet the needs of immigrant children in Saskatchewan schools.
