Saskatchewan Health Care
Known as the birthplace of Canada’s universal Medicare system, Saskatchewan is a global leader in health care. Similar to other Canadian provinces and territories, Saskatchewan faces a shortage of qualified nurses. Without a skilled and dedicated nursing workforce, providing quality care to residents is challenging. IENs are an important aspect of our recruitment strategy to build for the future, and while the application process can seem a bit daunting, we are here to connect you with resources and guide you every step of the way.
With a population of just over 1 million people, Saskatchewan is Canada’s fastest growing province. We are found on the Canadian prairies between Alberta and Manitoba, and north of the U.S. states of Montana and North Dakota. We are known as the Land of Living Skies and offer safe, welcoming communities, many outdoor adventures, uncrowded parks and a reasonable cost of living. Our two major communities, the capital city of Regina and Saskatoon, are home to nearly half of our population.

Working in Canada
Canada has opened its doors to welcome internationally educated nurses. The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) is predicting a continued shortage of nurses in the future, and nursing jobs in the country are more plentiful than ever.
It is important to note that you must have a valid job offer and apply for a work permit through Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) before you can legally work in Saskatchewan. Once working in Saskatchewan on a temporary basis, permanent residency options may later present themselves through alternate immigration programs. Please review the information for immigrant workers on the CIC website. http://www.cicnews.com/2013/08/coming-canada-nurse-process-082835.html
