PRINCE ALBERT IMMIGRANTS RECEIVE ASSISTANCE

A provincial government grant will support the Prince Albert Multicultural

Council in its efforts to help immigrants establish homes, educate their

children and find jobs in the community.



Prince Albert Carlton MLA Myron Kowalsky presented a $15,000 grant to the

council on behalf of Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Jack

Hillson.



"The provincial government believes its support to community groups such as the

Prince Albert Multicultural Council is a key component to building a strong

Saskatchewan," Kowalsky said. "The many volunteers and supporters of this

organization are welcoming people to our province and helping them to become

established members of the community. We are pleased to support their

effort."



The council will use the money to help people find a place to live, get

utilities hooked up, open bank accounts, shop for clothing, provide translation

services and language classes, help with accessing health services and

education.



Last year, the Prince Albert Multicultural Council helped 26 Kosovar refugees

settle in the community.
