New To Unity

Welcome!

Welcome to Unity, Saskatchewan, Canada!  Here are a few things that might help you with the adjustment:
If you are moving from a country with a warmer climate, keep in mind that our winters can be very cold.  This means dressing in layers of warm clothing and toques, mittens, jackets, and boots.  The snow can also make it difficult to get around.
It can also be very hot in the summer.  We suggest wearing a hat and to avoid the sun in the middle of the day to prevent sunburn and heat stroke.  Make sure to drink plenty of water and other fluids so that you do not get dehydrated, especially if you are physically active outside.  It is also a good idea to wear sunscreen and bug spray.

POST OFFICE BOX
After you move to Saskatchewan, and find a new place to live, you will need to get a post office box number.  This is where you will get your mail delivered to.  You also need this before you can apply for a health card, get your driver’s license, and open up a bank account.

HEALTH SERVICES
In Saskatchewan, the government pays for basic health care for residents and newcomers; however, you must apply for a Saskatchewan Health Services Card to benefit.  It is free to apply for a Health Card.  If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident/landed immigrant and live in Saskatchewan for 6 months out of the year, you are eligible. 

For more information or for an application form, call
1-800-667-7551.

GETTING YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE
If you are a new resident to Saskatchewan, and have had a valid driver’s license from another country, you can apply for a license within 90 days of moving. 

For more information, contact SGI at 1-800-667-9868.
