We are in the process of emigrating to Saskatoon, a city in the province of Saskatchewan in Canada.  There’s me, Barbara, my husband Michael, and our children Christopher, Isabel, Benjamin, Nicholas and Rebecca.  We have 4 days to take-off, and will keep this blog updated with photos and stories of our new life.  Welcome to our Saskatonian adventure!

      Thanks! Loved your post about the naked yoga – don’t think Saskatoon has embraced that concept yet, but I’ll keep you posted. Can’t imagine how anybody could face it. Literally.

        I’ve given up trying to work out if it’s better to be at the front or the back of the class…

    There are no good options really, are there? Why, oh why? What could the attraction possibly be?

    Would love to know if you guys were able to get work permit etc. in Toronto or did you have to get everything from London embassy in advance? Peter D.

      Hi Peter, we waited until we got our temporary work permits from London, but technically we could have arrived at Toronto airport and got them there on the strength of the SINP approval.

    I just lodged application with SINP this January. Was wondering how long nomination took for you guys? Did you have to do medicals for the temporary work permit or in connection with London process? (for permanent residence?)

    Oh, and importantly, how quickly did London turn around the work permit? Thanks Peter

    Hello! I am a student looking to move to Saskatoon to go to school there.
    Is it a pretty good town? Do you like it so far?

      Hi Hannah, we find it to be great so far – is it the University you’re hoping to attend? It’s a beautiful campus, and seems to have a really good reputation. I attended a focus group last month, and there was a couple of university students at it; they had only good things to say about life on campus 🙂
