More displaced Ukrainians arrived in Regina today

The fifth flight carrying displaced Ukrainians from Europe to Saskatchewan will be arrived in Regina today.

Some 4,000 Ukrainians have chosen to come to Saskatchewan to get away from the war in their country after the Russian Invasion.

After they arrived at Regina International Airport there will be a slew of programs in place to help these people adjust to life in another country.

Over the next few days, the province has setup workshops for all displaced Ukrainian families, to help with the settlement services needed to rebuild their lives here in Saskatchewan,” Legislative Secretary for Saskatchewan-Ukraine Relations Terry Dennis said. “Newcomers bring so much to our province. Supporting them through the settlement process is as beneficial for us as it is to each of them as individuals.”

This is the fifth of five flights agreed to by the government of Saskatchewan and humanitarian organizations Open Arms and Solidaire.
