Canadian Western Agribition is partnering with the Saskatchewan Roughriders to provide admission for more than 500 displaced Ukrainians and newcomers to Agribition this year. 

CEO Shaun Kindopp says as Ukrainians and refugees transition into this new way of life, it's important for them to feel welcome and safe in our province.

Roughrider President and CEO Craig Reynolds says as a community-owned team, we know how important genuine connections and experiences are to feeling a sense of belonging where we live and work.

So far, over 2,000 Ukrainians have arrived in the province since the war began in February.
