Saskatchewan is strong and vibrant and our provincial outlook is bright with the prospects of new business development and industrial expansion.  A key ingredient to the province’s economic success is the ability to access high quality, skilled workers.  New Canadians and foreign workers represent an important source of the skilled, talented and eager workers who will fuel the future growth and prosperity of our province.
