Fourth flight from Ukraine filled

Open Arms, one of the organizations bringing Ukrainians into Saskatchewan, has filled their next flight of migrants.
Landing in Saskatoon, this is their fourth of five scheduled flights, and this one will bring 230 more into the province.

The province said that upon arriving in Saskatchewan, passengers will have access to settlement services as they transition to life in Saskatchewan.

Planning is underway for the flight’s arrival on Wednesday.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is ready for the next wave of Ukrainian families with many supports in place for their upcoming arrival. Saskatchewan will continue to support Ukraine and its people for as long as needed,” said Minister of Immigration and Career Training Jeremy Harrison in a media release.

Earlier this year, the province signed a memorandum of understanding with Open Arms and Solidaire to bring the flights in.
