Posted by Nationwide Immigration Services on July 26th, 2022

One of Canada's most diversified provinces is Saskatchewan. Its allure is heightened by the flora and aesthetic attractiveness. Additionally, the expanding economy and the multicultural society make newcomers feel more welcomed. In the year 2019–2022, 13,364 immigrants entered Saskatchewan.
