Government of Saskatchewan Introduces Immigration Services Act

On April 8, 2024, the Government of Saskatchewan is introducing new legislation that will strengthen the immigration system, protect newcomers and employers, and create the strongest program integrity framework in the country.

Through the new Immigration Services Act, the province will:

  • Enhance the province's ability to provide a full suite of settlement services from pre-arrival support to longer-term retention assistance
  • Have stronger protections for foreign workers against exploitation and oversight of recruiters, immigration consultants, and non-compliant employers, improving the integrity and safety of our immigration program
  • Have increased investigative authorities and enforcement measures to tackle immigration fraud, including increased maximum fine amounts for offences and authorizing administrative monetary penalties for non-compliance.
