Preparations have begun to welcome a second humanitarian flight from Ukraine to Saskatchewan. 230 additional Ukrainian citizens are scheduled to arrive in Saskatchewan on August 10, 2022.
"A number of community groups, organizations, and individuals continue to help Ukrainian families settle into our province," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Support for this important work has been awe-inspiring, and we can't thank the people of Saskatchewan enough for the generosity and kindness they've shown toward Ukrainian citizens."
Upon arrival in Saskatchewan, the Ukrainian passengers will have temporary access to accommodations and numerous services, support, and information related to living in Saskatchewan. Local officials have begun planning for the arrival of the Ukrainian citizens, and more details will be supplied in the coming days.
The first flight successfully landed in Saskatchewan on July 4, 2022. Saskatchewan and its citizens are proud to partner with humanitarian organizations Open Arms and Solidaire on this initiative.
Millions of Ukrainian citizens have been forced to flee their country by the Russian army. With the arrival of this flight, more than 1,500 displaced Ukrainians have arrived in Saskatchewan since the conflict began.
