We Are Building Success!

Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA)

Through the operation of six First Nations gaming entertainment destinations, the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) is strengthening the lives of First Nations people through employment, economic growth, and positive community relations.

“What drives us is our sense of purpose – whether it’s supporting cultural, recreational and sporting events (First Nation or non-First Nation) or supplying scholarships to First Nations students, who may otherwise not have been able to fund their education and achieve their goals.”  Zane Hansen, President and CEO

  • 1875 – The number of people SIGA employs.
  • 65 – The percentage of employees who are First Nations.
  • 45 – The percentage of SIGA’s management team who are women. SIGA casinos entertain over 4.5 million guests annually.
  • $1 billion – The amount of money SIGA has generated for its beneficiaries
  • And that’s because of another number…100%…the amount of SIGA’s profits that go back into the province and its communities.

My favourite thing about working for SIGA is the family orientation. I think it would be tough to find a workplace as sincere as SIGA."

SIGA's Guiding Principles and Business Values

As a First Nations organization employing First Nations people, SIGA has adopted five principles to encourage balance, while incorporating the traditional aspects of First Nations culture. While our five guiding principles are presented here in Cree, there are parallel expressions in the Saulteaux, Dene and Lakota, Dakota and Nakota languages.


The principle of Tâpwêwin advocates speaking with precision and accuracy. From a business perspective, this means SIGA must be accountable for its actions and conduct business with integrity, honour and discipline.


Pimâcihowin stresses the importance of “making a living” and is today’s realization of our First Nations’ treaty relationship. The financial and operational success of SIGA provides the means to exercise a holistic approach to improving the quality of life for our people.


The value of getting along with others is embodied in the word Miyo-wîcêhtowin. By conducting our business in a manner that reflects our First Nations hospitality, traditions and customs, we are able to foster good relations with our customers. Guest satisfaction is crucial to our success and our First Nations heritage is a source of competitive advantage.


Miskâsowin signifies the value of finding one’s sense of origin and belonging. A fundamental goal of SIGA is to bring about this sense in a positive way. This value speaks to instilling a sense of pride in ourselves and our province’s First Nations’ heritage.


Living together on the land is the fundamental value conveyed by the word Wîtaskêwin. SIGA’s vision “Sharing Success” talks to the concept of sharing our land or, in today’s terms, sharing resources. This value directs us to give back to the communities where we live and work.
