Foreign Nurses from the Philippines Begin Working in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan aiming to recruit foreign Doctors too, released by Saskatchewan on 16 January 2024

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of Saskatchewan. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

Progress is Being Made on Recruiting Additional Physicians

Twenty-one nurses recruited from the Philippines have completed their training in Saskatchewan and started working in communities across the province. More are expected to join the health care system in the coming months.

So far, 131 Filipino nurses have arrived in Saskatchewan. More than 400 internationally educated nurses from the Philippines received conditional offers of employment as registered nurses to work in Saskatchewan.

Progress is also being made on recruiting additional physicians to meet the health care needs of Saskatchewan’s growing population. Since September 2021, 259 physicians have been recruited to Saskatchewan, 39 physicians from outside the country. This includes 105 family physicians and 154 specialists.
The Government of Saskatchewan recently announced an additional $850,000 in funding to the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT) to support 25 additional seats in the Mental Health and Wellness Diploma program in Saskatoon for a total of 175 seats to meet demand in this occupation.
