Premier Brad Wall says he wants to speak with the prime minister about Ottawa's refusal to provide chemotherapy to a man who is claiming refugee status.
The man arrived in Saskatoon several months ago after fleeing a Middle Eastern country where he says he was persecuted for being Christian.
Saskatchewan has picked up the tab for the man's treatment.
But Wall says he'd like to discuss compensation with Stephen Harper.
The premier also wants to talk about changes to family reunification rules that the province was forced into by the federal government.
Wall says raising the cap on the immigrant nominee program from 4,000 to 6,000 people annually would help.
