About Us

Saskatoon Public Schools launched the International Student Program in 1996 to provide an opportunity for:

  • International students to study and learn alongside Canadian students, and
  • To improve the cultural awareness of local students. 
A renewal of the program in 2022-23 resulted in its new name: Saskatoon International Education.
