Overview
SIGA casinos entertain over four million guests annually.
With over 2,200 employees including over 1,390
First Nations employees, SIGA is a top 15 employer
in Saskatchewan. The entertainment company is
currently ranked in Saskatchewan’s top 30 companies
with annual revenues of approximately $200M and
net profits over $60M.
The family of casinos are conveniently located across
Saskatchewan: Bear Claw Casino (Moose Mountain
Provincial Park), Dakota Dunes Casino (Saskatoon),
Gold Eagle Casino (North Battleford), Living Sky Casino
(Swift Current), Northern Lights Casino (Prince Albert)
and Painted Hand Casino (Yorkton).
In addition to providing traditional First Nations
hospitality and service, SIGA casinos offer entertainment
and excitement including 1870 slot machines, 54 live
table games, and a full line of food and beverage services
as well as live on-stage entertainment.
Under the First Nations Gaming Act in 1995, the
Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Inc. created
the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. Since
1996, SIGA has been incorporated under The Non-Profit
Corporation Act of Saskatchewan with all profits returned
to its beneficiaries.
Gaming operations have become an important revenue
source for Saskatchewan’s First Nations, the Provincial
Treasury, and Community Development Corporations (CDC)
situated in six casino locations across Saskatchewan. The
CDCs distribute this money to charitable and not-for-profit
community organizations.
As a responsible corporate citizen, SIGA has made a
commitment to our customers, employees, stakeholders
and suppliers to advocate the responsible use of its
gaming products and to minimize the potential for harm.
SIGA’s mandate is to generate revenue, create economic
development, and create employment opportunities for
First Nations people in Saskatchewan.
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) is
the operator of First Nations casinos in Saskatchewan.
