Real Estate for Newcomers and Immigrants in Saskatoon
Saskatoon is currently faced with an aging population, low birth rates, and labor shortages. To grow and support our city, both in the local and global marketplace, Saskatoon needs more people. City Council recognized this trend back in 2004 and proactively approved the development and implementation of an immigration action plan to address these concerns.
Immigration is not new to Saskatoon and has played an important role throughout its history. Saskatoon was founded by the aboriginal peoples and immigrants over 100 years ago and is constantly rejuvenated by newcomers. Immigration brings unique cultures, hopes, and dreams while adding harmony, diversity, and vitality to our fine city.
Immigrants are people who have chosen to settle permanently in Canada; while refugees are people who are forced to flee their home country, in search of freedom, peace, and safety for themselves and their families. Both make significant contributions to the social, economic and cultural landscape of Saskatoon.
Help to Build An Inclusive Community
If Saskatoon's economy is to remain dynamic and sustainable, all citizens will need to embrace and bridge our multicultural community. Your thoughts and actions today can make a difference tomorrow: appreciate and support your neighbours, your community, and your culturally diverse city.
