Saskatchewan is rolling out multiple initiatives guided by a four-point plan to recruit, train, incentivize and retain health care providers to stabilize and steadily grow the provincial workforce. This plan will see hundreds of additional professionals joining the health system over the next two years.
As part of this plan, Saskatchewan is ramping up efforts and timelines to attract and welcome healthcare professionals from within the province, across Canada and abroad. The province is also increasing awareness of programs currently available for Saskatchewan students and residents interested in pursuing a health care career.
“Saskatchewan is a great place to find health care opportunities, build a career and have a good quality of life.” Paul Merriman, Minister of Health
“Saskatchewan offers numerous opportunities, supports and incentives for those interested in a health care education and career in various regions of the province. Cost of living is lower in Saskatchewan compared to other provinces. We have a diverse population and welcome newcomers to Canada.” Everett Hindley, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, Seniors and Rural and Remote Health
