Fifth flight of Ukrainian refugees to arrive in Saskatchewan March 27

Saskatchewan will help bring in another 230 Ukrainian refugees fleeing from the conflict with Russia.

Immigration Minister Jeremy Harrison says the flight is expected to arrive on March 27th, though which city the flight will land in is still being confirmed, along with other logistics.

The flight from Warsaw, Poland is being arranged in partnership with the humanitarian organizations Solidaire and Open Arms, as part of a Memorandum of Understanding between them and the province to bring in more than 1-thousand Ukrainians from Warsaw, Poland to the province by March 31st. They will exceed that total with the fifth flight with over 33-hundred arriving here since the Russia-Ukraine war began.

The last flight took place in November.

Upon arriving, the refugees will have access to temporary accommodations and a suite of services and information related to living in the province.
