In a tweet Friday night, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair stated the armed forces are on their way to the province to provide the necessary support to fight the pandemic.

As Saskatchewan faces a surge of COVID-19 cases, we have approved a request for federal assistance to support the people of SK. The @CanadianForces will provide communities the support they need to fight the pandemic.

— Bill Blair (@BillBlair) October 23, 2021

The move comes as Saskatchewan started shipping ICU patients to Ontario to help deal with packed Intensive Care Units.

Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) president Marlo Pritchard said, in a Friday briefing, meetings are being held with Public Safety Canada, adding good progress has been made so far.

“I expect to have more information soon about having boots on the ground at some point next week,” Pritchard told reporters.
