Why do Services Mapping?
Service Maps are part of a larger research and consultation initiative to identify existing newcomer service assets mapping (services available for newcomers) and gaps in available services. Service maps serve as a foundational study to inform the strategic community planning process in Saskatoon.
How were Service Maps developed?
The following selection criteria is used to identify newcomer services and programs:
- The program, service or initiative is available to immigrants and refugees and has demonstrated a positive contribution to the settlement experience;
- The program, service or initiative is available within the geographic boundaries of the city of Saskatoon (except where there is a unique service provided outside of Saskatoon that is critical to the settlement process); and,
- The program, service or initiative is provided at no cost.
All programs are listed under six main categories:
- Settlement and Refugee services.
- Health and Nutrition services.
- English Language services.
- Employment and Education Support services.
- Community Integration services.
- Individual and Family Support services.
