Corporate Volunteer Program
SIGA won the award for Exemplary Volunteerism and Community Support at the Canadian
Gaming Association’s (CGA) first Canadian Gaming Awards Gala on April 26, 2007.
The awards recognize excellence and achievement in two distinct areas: one annual award
for Exemplary Volunteerism & Community Support, and two awards for long-term leadership
and outstanding contribution. In 2007/08, SIGA Central Office staff invested almost 1,500

In 2008, SIGA will be formalizing its support of community initiatives by developing an
employee owned and driven volunteer program.
