Social Responsibility
Sponsorship
The guiding principle “Wîtaskêwin” relates to sharing the land or sharing resources
and this is SIGA’s way of giving back to the communities where we live and
operate. SIGA’s community relations sponsorship program provides a $1.3M annual
investment into charitable and non-profit based organizations in Saskatchewan.
In 2008/09, SIGA contributed to hundreds of community organizations including:
Prince Albert Parkland Health Region, Saskatchewan Conservation Learning Centre,
First Nations University Pow Wow, Regina Aboriginal Kin Club, Saskatchewan
Epilepsy, Qu’Appelle Valley Friendship Centre, Swift Current Agriculture and Exhibition
Association, John Davies Christmas Hamper Program, Saskatchewan First Nations
Winter Games, Yorkton Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and many others. The Saskatchewan
Indian Gaming Authority was the proud title sponsor of Team Saskatchewan at the
North American Indigenous Games in Cowichan, British Columbia.
SIGA continues to make a positive impact through its investment in its targeted
sectors. With a focus on youth, SIGA continues to make a difference in the quality
of life for the socially, physically and economically disadvantaged as well as those
with special needs.
