Today the Government of Saskatchewan has introduced The Labour Mobility and Fair Registration Practices Act.  The Act will make Saskatchewan the best place in Canada to re- locate to from within the country or abroad for skilled workers. The Act will reduce barriers to working in the province to ensure skilled workers can have their skills and credentials recognized, while assisting employers in filling jobs across a number of key sectors, such as healthcare, construction and IT.

"To meet the demands of Saskatchewan's growing economy, it is important that we develop our current labour force as well as recruit domestically and internationally to bring more skilled workers to the province," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "This new legislation will be the most comprehensive of its kind and make Saskatchewan a destination of choice for skilled professionals and tradespeople."
