Saskatchewan Indigenous Economic Development Day

The 2018 Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Awards showcase the work, passion and outcomes achieved by an individual First Nation citizen and community that builds positive business relationships, employment for First Nations and incorporates traditional values into mainstream business practice.
The importance of economic development to the wellbeing of First Nations in Saskatchewan and contribution to the health and resiliency of Saskatchewan’s economy cannot be understated. The entrepreneurial spirit of First Nations in Saskatchewan is acknowledged as a critical engine of economic growth, innovation and diversification in our province. First Nation individuals and communities are known to be leaders in economic growth and job creation. In recognition of this, the SFNEDN presents the annual “SFNEDN Economic Developer Awards” commemorating the effort and achievement of individuals and communities. One award will be given in each category:
- Individual Economic Developer Award; and
- Community Economic Developer Award.
Intersections for Growth (Saskatchewan Economic Development Association)
The 2018 Intersections for Growth Conference showcases the ongoing partnership between the Saskatchewan Economic Development Association and the Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Network and our goal to build mutually beneficial municipal and First Nations relationships using economic development as a bridge to reconciliation.
Proudly sponsored by the Affinity Credit Union, the inaugural Partnership & Reconciliation Awards program recognizes partnerships between municipalities or regional development entities and First Nations, who are taking positive steps towards reconciliation and economic development in Saskatchewan. Two awards will be presented:
- Affinity Credit Union Economic Partnership Award; and
- Affinity Credit Union Reconciliation Award.
