Province Strengthens Support For Newcomers In The Southeast

Released on March 6, 2020

Southeast Newcomer Services is a welcome centre for new residents in the Weyburn and Estevan region that assists participants and connects them to community resources, activities and networks.  Operated by Southeast Advocates for Employment Inc., the centre will receive more than $200,000 in provincial funding in 2020 to address the settlement needs of newcomers and facilitate their gradual integration into the larger community. 

This southeast gateway will serve up to 500 newcomers in the year ahead, assessing the needs of program participants and co-ordinating access to services related to language assistance, settlement and employment.

“Our government is proud to invest in settlement support programming to ensure newcomers have access to community resources and feel accepted in their new home,” Government Relations Minister and Estevan MLA Lori Carr said on behalf of Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison.  “We greatly appreciate our ongoing relationship with Southeast Advocates for Employment and their dedication to ensuring new residents in southeast Saskatchewan are supported in their transition into our inclusive workplaces and communities.”

“It’s exciting and rewarding to assist in the settlement of individuals and families into our communities making southeast Saskatchewan a new home and helping to create cultural diversity in our region,” Southeast Advocates for Employment Inc. Executive Director Debbie Hagel said.

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.
