SK CultureXchange Program


SK CultureXchange Program is a cultural partnership between newcomers and established residents of Saskatchewan. This cultural partnership will provide supportive friendships beneficial to all. 

Newcomers will be able to foster a sense of belonging. Locals will have the opportunity to connect with newcomers to develop friendships, learn/share about their community and what it has to offer, and practice communication skills. 

The ultimate goal is to increase intercultural understanding through exchanging personal experiences in a meaningful way.


Participants will:

  • Be paired with a volunteer and receive friendly and informative support that helps them adjust and integrate into the community;
  • Gain a safe and knowledgeable contact to ask questions and learn about how to access important local resources and understand local cultural norms;
  • Share their culture and stories in a safe space; and
  • Increase self-confidence and feel more comfortable and connected to a new environment, which will help them integrate more quickly.

Local Volunteers will:

  • Increase their cultural knowledge and understanding by learning about another culture and hearing personal experiences;
  • Contribute to creating a more welcoming community by providing information on community opportunities and resources as well as tips on where to find the best local programs, services, and entertainment; and
  • Develop their leadership skills by mentoring new residents and helping them feel at home in a new community.
