Province Strengthens Support For Newcomers In Moose Jaw

Released on March 6, 2020

The Newcomer Welcome Centre, operated by the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council, serves new residents in the Moose Jaw area and provides a first-stop service to newcomers when they arrive in Saskatchewan.  The centre welcomes newcomers by providing a full range of settlement services, including orientation, adaptation, integration, information and referrals, language services and a community connections program.

The Ministry of Immigration and Career Training is providing more than $250,000 to the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council in 2020 to provide opportunities for up to 300 newcomers with the overarching goal of supporting them in making informed decisions and taking independent action with regard to their settlement and integration.

“Investments in settlement support programming allows newcomers to access community resources and feel accepted in their new home,” Moose Jaw-Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence said on behalf of Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison.  “The Moose Jaw Multicultural Council has a long and distinguished record of supporting people in Moose Jaw and our government is proud to continue this partnership.”

“Immigration is and will continue to play an essential role in the growth and economic sustainability of our country and province; it is important that we are able to welcome those newest to our communities, provide them support where needed, and set them up for a successful settlement and integration experience,” Moose Jaw Multicultural Council Executive Director Stefanie Palmer said.  “Our services help guide Newcomers to Canada through the complexities that almost always come along with understanding a new way of life in a new country.  We are thankful to the Government of Saskatchewan for being a large funding partner so that we are able to continue this important and essential work.”

Investments in Saskatchewan's Regional Newcomer Gateways allow welcome centres to offer free settlement support services for those arriving in the province, connecting newcomers with the information, resources and services they need to make their move to Saskatchewan a success.

The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to support Regional Newcomer Gateways across the province, investing more than $2.5 million in 2020 to support settlement services and improve the lives of new residents.
