Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration (CIC), Judy Sgro, and Saskatchewan's Minister Responsible for Immigration, Pat Atkinson, announced Nov. 29 that language training for adults migrating to Saskatchewan will be launched in the near future.

More than $264,000 has been earmarked to support the project which will help meet the needs of the province's growing labor market and economy. The training program will run till next year, but an agreement between CIC and the Saskatchewan government foresee that the program will be renewable for the next four years.

The funding will also be used to assist recent immigrants to Saskatchewan in obtaining employment in four priority sectors: health professions, trades, sales and services, and natural and applied sciences.
