Provincial Settlement Services

The Provincial Settlement Services, also known as Pathways Program at IWS, support newcomer immigrants to Saskatchewan with enhanced access to general orientation information, and individualized settlement action planning and referrals to facilitate their settlement into Saskatchewan. The services are available to newcomer immigrants who reside in Saskatoon, Regina, and communities within a 150km radius of both cities.
