REGINA — The Saskatchewan government has confirmed a third humanitarian flight of Ukrainian refugees will arrive in the province Oct. 25.

Minister of Trade and Export Development Jeremy Harrison announced Tuesday that registration is now open for a third humanitarian flight since the start of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia this year.

It is being arranged in partnership with humanitarian organizations Solidaire and Open Arms, who had organized the two Ukraine flights that landed in Regina earlier this year.

The plan is for passengers to again have access to temporary accommodations and a suite of services, support and information once they land in Saskatchewan. Premier Scott Moe signed a memorandum of understanding with Solidaire and Open Arms Aug. 12 to commit to a maximum of five humanitarian flights.

"The government of Saskatchewan along with our municipalities, businesses and residents remain steadfast in our support for the people of Ukraine as they continue to suffer through this terrible ordeal," Harrison said in a statement. "Saskatchewan has a bond with Ukraine, and this ongoing support will continue to strengthen that bond, but more importantly it will improve the lives for those who have faced so much since this conflict began."
