Moose Jaw

Employment Opportunities There are so many big opportunities in Moose Jaw, and I just loved that after school it wasn't that hard to get a job and to get that feel I'm done and I'm starting my life. – Kailey Ruston, Marketing Graduate from Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw

Approximately 900 people work in the heavy industrial plants located near Belle Plaine with as many as half living in Moose Jaw. Numbers are expected to grow over the next year as the K+S Mine potash mine becomes operational, providing new job opportunities in trades and technologies, administration, management, and general labourers. The two local potash mines, along with their supply chains, will need workers trained in Engineering Technologies, Building Trades and Business Administration. Training and industrial work experience will be required. Your local Service Canada office and other employment agencies provide assistance in finding employment in the local area.

Adjacent to the YaraCentre are acres of soccer fields, slow pitch ball diamonds, bike park and an off-leash dog park. Definitely a popular place for the entire family! A state-of-the-art bicycle skills park will be constructed soon as one of the finest in the country designed for all kinds of bikes including BMX and mountain bikes.

What's a Fun Day Off in

YOUNG COUPLE

FAMILY

Andy has his own business downtown. He moved here with his wife, she is a doctor and they have three young children: "When my wife and I are lucky enough to have the same day off, as it rare due to our very busy lives, we start with breakfast with the kids at home. By 10:00am we are off for a swim at the Kinsmen Sportsplex or turf time at YaraCentre. YaraCentre is great because we can each get a run in around the track while we trade off looking after the kids.

Crystal and Kirby moved back to Moose Jaw after following their careers to BC. Kirby has his own business and Crystal works in communications: "On our summer weekends we love to do our shopping at the downtown Farmers Market. We usually browse through all the booths before grabbing lattes at our favourite downtown cafĂŠ. We often stroll through Crescent Park and take a relaxing tour of the Art Museum and Gallery. It's also fun to go for lunch in one of our favourite restaurants within close walking distance of the Farmers Market. We love the downtown's array of unique boutiques and specialty shops but we

SEMI-RETIRED

Joyce and Harvey have long successful careers nearing retirement. They have lived in Moose Jaw their whole lives and love it here:

"We love the home we have built - it is in such a beautiful area of town. Our day off starts with coffee on the deck overlooking the gardens then a trip to the off-leash dog park for a brisk walk. The Wakamow Park Ecological Zone is a place we like to sit on a bench and watch for deer, birds and other wildlife who inhabit that area. For fun we I collect our granddaughter (we like to give our daughter a break too!) ...and she loves the waterpark in Crescent Park and the playground


Moose Jaw?

Moose Jaw has a rich great history that a lot of other places don't have and when you drive or walk around downtown Moose Jaw it's an experience. – Patrick Boyle, Manager Corporate Communications Water Security Agency

In the summer we love to go to Phyllis Dewar Outdoor Pool or the water park right next door. Often we get together with our friends and their kids and have a picnic next to the playground in Connor Park, with a great covered picnic area located in the river valley. There are so many great annual family events. We love the Santa Claus Parade, the Hometown Fair, and Sidewalk Days in July. We never miss the Motif Festival with the wonderful selection of different foods and entertainment from all over the world.

also appreciate the mix of big box stores located on Thatcher Drive. Every summer we look forward to the many festivals and events. One of our favourites is the multicultural Motif. And then there's Festival of Words – a three-day event that showcases famous writers. When our friends from British Columbia visit we take them on one of our two underground Moose Jaw Tunnel tours. We love meeting Al Capone and hearing the story of Chicago gangsters who used to frequent our city. But I think my favourite tunnel tour is the Passage to Fortune - the story of the Chinese immigrants who lived here and helped build Canada's national railway.

in Connor Park. On days that are too hot or too cold we take in an afternoon matinee at the movie theatre. And too often we go for ice cream! We enjoy our season ticket to the Mae Wilson Theatre with RuBarb Productions – performing arts company – producing some fantastic live theatre performances all year round. Summertime means live entertainment in Crescent Park. We also love to go shopping downtown and often stop at one of the downtown restaurants to relax with friends over a glass of wine. We spend a lot of time on one of the three local golf courses. But in the winter, while my husband heads

We are season ticket holders for the Moose Jaw Warriors (hockey) and love to take our three kids to the games. We also love to go to concerts at Mosaic® Place The Backstreet Boys were a favourite! Whenever we have guests come to visit us we book a ride on the Trolley and tour Moose Jaw. They always love the history of our city and the downtown murals."

A lot of our summertime is filled with biking the Trans Canada trails around the city and challenging the nationally acclaimed mountain biking trails at Buffalo Pound Park. We also enjoy canoeing the Moose Jaw river. Winters are lots of fun too – we love cross-country skiing along the river or skating on the outdoor Oval in River Park. Evenings we like to go out to our favourite local pub for trivia or to see live entertainment at Mae Wilson Theatre. And of course we try to attend most of the live concerts held at Mosaic® Place. We love Moose Jaw because there is always something fun to do all year long!"

out ice fishing, I join the local quilters guild or visit the library. One of our most relaxing activities is taking a rejuvenating dip in the hot mineral waters at the spa. The 'best' is sitting in the hot outdoor pool with snowflakes falling on our heads! We both volunteer with our service clubs throughout the year and that's a lot of fun. Most recently we helped raise money for medical equipment for our new hospital. The community is so giving and it makes us proud to do what we can to help. Moose Jaw has been a great place to raise our family, and now our daughter is raising her daughter here. Moose Jaw really is such a great place to retire… and it's a very affordable place to live too!"
