The province is preparing to welcome its second humanitarian flight from Ukraine to Saskatchewan. The flight is expected to touch down on August 10, with 230 Ukrainian citizens on board. 

"A number of community groups, organizations and individuals continue to help Ukrainian families settle into our province," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Support for this important work has been awe inspiring, and we can't thank the people of Saskatchewan enough for the generosity and kindness they've shown toward Ukrainian citizens."

Upon arrival, passengers will have access to temporary accommodations and a suite of services, support and information about living in Saskatchewan.

After the success of the first flight, which landed on July 4, the Government of Saskatchewan stated it is proud to once again partner with humanitarian organizations Open Arms and Solidaire on the initiative. 

“The invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army has forced millions of Ukrainian people to flee their country in search of safety. With the arrival of this flight, more than 1,500 displaced Ukrainians have arrived in Saskatchewan since the conflict began,” stated the Government in a media release.
