How to find a Job in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is actively seeking out landed Canadian immigrants, whose skills are underutilized in their current occupations, to inform them about the work opportunities available in his province.

If you wish to work in Canada and you are not a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, you will need to be authorized to do so.  In most situations, you will need a work permit.  For more information on who is eligible and how to apply for a temporary work permit, visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.

Working in a healthy and safe way is an important part of workplace culture in Saskatchewan and within Canada.  About 90 per cent of jobs in Saskatchewan are covered by a provincial law called The Occupational Health and Safety Act.  Health and Safety at Work explains important information about the act and describes what you need to know and what you need to do to stay healthy and safe at work.  It also describes your rights and responsibilities as an employee in Saskatchewan.

Premier Wall hopes to recruit these newcomers to Saskatchewan.  There, their academic credentials and work experience can be put to better use.  There are 10,000 newly created jobs in Saskatchewan in every industry from high-tech to health care, construction to the oil patch.  Saskatchewan is a second chance for these newcomers to gain meaningful Canadian employment in their fields.

Saskatchewan cities, such as Saskatoon and Regina, are not often considered as an immigration destination, partly because they are not as well known as Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, and also because they do not have the same sort of immigrant communities.  The province is seeking to rectify this through promotion and education.  It is in great need of newcomers in order to grow its labour force and population. 

Advantages to live and work in Saskatchewan:

1. Saskatchewan will in at least five years (if not already) be known as a province equally as prosperous as Alberta. For many reasons, such as that Sask has a slightly more diverse portfolio of natural resources, which are the future of Canada’s economy.

2. The province is not nearly as heavily oil dependent, but furthermore control the world’s market supply of uranium (which, whether we like it or not is the Fed’s short-term resolution for a “green” shift), along with an abundance of potash, and wheat.

3. Saskatchewan has a  great, wide open space, fresh air, and quiet laid back atmosphere.

4.Saskatoon – one of its cities is often described as one of the prettiest and best planned cities in Canada.

5.Jobs are mostly in retail sales and more part-time temporary work. Unemployment is down but many families I know are working 2 jobs each to pay for increasing living costs.

6. Saskatchewan have one of the most diversified economies in the country, a laid-back atmosphere and reasonable cost of living . Also has a thriving high-tech sector, particularly in Saskatoon with some research facilities that are unique in Canada. And a good cultural scene to boot.

7. While there are not mountains, and beautiful warm weather the year round, the prairies are beautiful scenary in free, horizonless way. The sunsets are increadible, the summers are warm, relaxing and fun.

8. What’s so great about Saskatchewan? short commutes, lakes, parks, friendly communities, safe schools, wide open spaces!
