Welcome to Saskatoon

By Sumith Priyashantha

This page is designed to give some valuable information mainly for Newcomers/Immigrants to Saskatoon, Canada from another country. I know that it is hard to settle down in a foreign soil once you come from a different country. You don’t know what you should do first, where you can find things you need, and who you should contact for help. If you have a friend or two here in Saskatoon or in Canada, it will be easy for you to settle down. But those who don’t have anyone here, it will be tough and challenging. So I decided to share what I know with Newcomers/Immigrants to Saskatoon, Canada and help them a bit to settle down. This page contains information needed for Newcomers/Immigrants. But this will be useful to people planning to move to Saskatoon, Canada.

I wish you all the best and good luck in your new home.
