Hi guys, I am looking to Migrate to Saskatchewan for a start... I am an experienced User Experience Researcher, with over a year of Product Management experience and 2 Years of Business Development experience.

I have a Second class upper in Materials Engineering.

What are my chances and what do I need to do?

Pros: Easier for PR if you are an international student, diversified economy, decent average wages for professionals (only Alberta is higher), cuisines is oyinbo food, but there are Nigerian food stores scattered across the province, Good number of Nigerian trained doctors and other professionals, less populated, cheap phone plans and car insurance, decent cost of rent or property etc

Cons: Bitterly cold-comparable to Manitoba and Edmonton & up, Mosquitoes in summer, diversity not as much as Ontario or BC, could be boring, no real international airport like the one in Calgary, Vancouver or Toronto, lowest minimum wage in Canada, Infrastructures not as nice as say BC or Ontario.

Moved here from Calgary, Alberta after the world Oil glut seriously affected Alberta's economy. Had a chance to move elsewhere like BC or return to Alberta, but the family loves it here than Alberta, so this is home now. Love Sask - Land of the living skies.

However, you will get you more response and views on the existing Living in Canada thread.

Regina or Saskatoon?
I find Saskatchewan to be more of a family oriented province.

That generalization though. Every province has cities or towns that are family oriented.

To talk about a proper family oriented location , I won't actually include Saskatoon or Regina or any other medium size to big city as per Canadian standards.

Having lived in Regina, Swift Current, Moose Jaw Weyburn, less than a week in Saskatoon and Estevan, in my opinion, the best places that are more family oriented are the towns or very small cities (Less than 40k population), but job opportunities are also limited in those places.

Chop knuckle... That is the reason most Canadians that love their children move to small cities... Cos they are sane for the children and they will be able to grow well. I stay in a small community too cos of what I heard about the community and family and from there, drive out to work...

So, small communities are best in Canada. Just go to the cities for holidays and shopping.

Hello Naijans in Sask.
Good to be here, thanks to d pioneers of this thread. I have an issue, i am looking for help from u guys. I have been trying several pilots to immigrate to Canada, but my IELTS have been the stumbling block., most recent is 6.5. So i tried the SINP. I submitted my EOI and indicated i had a relative in Sask. This person is actually a friend and not related to me. I called her up, only to find out she has relocated to Edmonton. About 2 weeks after, i got ITA.

Pls, can an angel come to my aid?, can some one, help reference me?

A plea for help!

Hello guys,

Pls i need help regarding the sinp EoI. I need clarification. Regarding the job experience points are given for last 5 years before application and in the last 6-10 years before application. Must it all be in the same occupation one is applying for?

Eg

The last 5yrs being in a NOC that is the intended occupation
The previous 6-10yrs being in a different NOC.

Or

Must everything be in one NOC?


Thanks in advance

@ Salford, Justwise, I have an Uncle in Saskatchewan, and we believe it will help us get more points but a friend that is in Alberta said we can't get points for a relative that is not a brother or sister. How true is this please?

Saskatchewan is not that developed, no light, no good road, no good health care center, no portable water and the environment is not that conducive to live in.

Someone cannot just reference you... it has to be a family membet. You can talk to immigration@flklaw.ca to talk about your options.

What are my chances of making it here by next year. Then I would have completed my PhD. I would also be 31 by then. I'm thinking of coming in as a Lecturer or HSE officer because of NEBOSH.
Also which will be easier provincial nomination or main express entry.

Hello.
Congrats on your admissions.
North Central has lots of crime, and so is the area east of downtown between Winnipeg and Broad street. Infact, I would advise you stay away from downtown. Also try to consider the university of Regina's location with respect to distance from home and daycare.
As per day care, budget between $850 to 1000 per month
2bedroom condo in a good area, budget from $950 to $1400.
Child benefit is Federal, so the province doesn't matter.
