Life on the Prairies

Lindsay Rubeniuk

Hey, I've got some questions for you. Are you done living in an overcrowded city where housing is unaffordable, commutes are too long, and your quality of life is not quite what you expected it to be? Are you thinking of relocating or even emigrating to get away from it all? If you said yes, look no further, my friend. You have found the podcast where you will learn about affordable communities that hosts a quality of life that is second to none. Join me as I speak to people from across the beautiful prairies who have made this part of Canada their home and at the same time discover career opportunities, recreational activities and other reasons that make living on the Prairies so great. If this sounds like something that sparks your interest, then stick around. I am your host, Lindsay Rubeniuk, and you are listening to Life on the Prairies.

S5 Ep3: What is an International School doing in a rural prairie town anyway?
Why is housing so cheap & still there is lots of opportunity in Hazlet?  Why invest in this region? Why move here? Why immigrate here? So many questions yet the answers can be found in this podcast!  Lindsay Alban loves rural life and living in her hometown, Hazlet,  but she wants to share this all with you! Did you know Hazlet is home for many international students from around the world, join us as she speaks about the Chinook International Program.  Alban will also let us in on the fact that for a lovely three bedroom home in her area is about $500, 000 less then the national average and there are plenty of employment as well as business opportunities. Beyond affordable housing, excellent income potential along with the quality of life that offers short commutes and lots of recreational opportunities, Hazlet is definitely a community you need to check out! This town & their region don't just stop at being rural innovators that welcome students from around the world; they have other cool projects like clean sustainable technology. Cities got nothing in this region!  Further, if you want to buy a business or check out the employment scene and even learn why it is great to live in the Three Points region then you have to check out  www.threepointsep.ca  Insta - @threepointsep  Facebook @threepointsep Lindsay's innovative hometown - www.hazletsk.ca Insta - @hazletsask Facebook - @hazletsask Lindsay & team's Newcomer Welcome Centre: www.newcomerwelcomecentre.com Chinook International Program - www.chinooksask.ca Would you like to develop your town?

S5 Ep2: The Ultimate Advice from a Retired Successful Immigrant on the Prairies.
There is no one I have met yet that could provide better advice than what it is like to not only live and work on the Prairies but now to retire here too. Join me as I chat with Ms. Frances Stewart about her very successful life living in a rural town. What she says may just surprise you, as it is not who you know but what you, as a person has to offer,  could make all the difference. Her daughter, Carol Stewart, also joins us to discuss what it was like to immigrate at the age of 8, be raised in a Prairie town and return to the same community years later. If you are someone looking to relocate to an awesome town or immigrate and wondering what makes a successful newcomer, then hit play because we got it all right here!  Assiniboine Community College (ACC)   -  ACC Want to come to Dauphin as an International Student?
