Welcome to Iisalmi and Upper Savo!

Upper-Savo consists of seven municipalities: Iisalmi, Keitele, Kiuruvesi, Lapinlahti, Pielavesi, Sonkajärvi and Vieremä.

Multiculturalism is a resource for Upper Savo, which the region wants to further develop. Foreign sources of workforce are seen as very important resource in the region. Immigrants’ acculturation is supported together with different operators and there is an active Advisory Board for Ethnic Relations in Upper Savo.

The immigration and refugee counseling of the city of Iisalmi operates in the city, but also in the rest of Upper Savo area.
