There are many opportunities for work for your partner and other family members as you settle in Saskatchewan. There are a lot of great resources to get your family started.
Job Search Service Centers and Sites
Saskjobs.ca is the largest job-posting site in Saskatchewan. It has postings for entry-level, trade, professional and management positions. Jobs are listed by occupation and region as well as a description of each and information on how to apply.
SaskJobs Career Services provide assistance to link the abilities of Saskatchewan workers with the needs of employers. They provide job searching, job matching, career planning, and job training services to Saskatchewan residents throughout the province.
In Saskatchewan, advertised job openings may be found on job websites, in newspapers, at job fairs and or on community bulletin boards. It is important to know that some jobs are not advertised. Finding these types of jobs requires professional networking with managers, employees, family, friends and acquaintances.
Networking involves exchanging ideas and information with people you know, people you do not know and people you have just met.
There are eleven Regional Newcomer Gateway Welcome Centers throughout the province. They welcome all immigrant newcomers, whether coming to Saskatchewan directly from abroad or from another province. Settlement advisors can assist newcomers in providing opportunities to discuss your individual needs in more detail.
