Message from the
FSIN
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority
(SIGA) has achieved new pinnacles in
gaming and entertainment. The Chiefs of
Saskatchewan established SIGA in 1995
as a non-profit organization with a vision and
mission to share success and strengthen the
lives of Saskatchewan and First Nations people
through employment, economic growth, and
community relations.
As SIGA continues to honour and respect its
values by conducting business with integrity,
developing good relations and giving back to
the communities, its long-term sustainability
and strong focus on the future will provide
many more benefits to all First Nations as
well to citizens in Saskatchewan.
One of SIGA’s guiding principles,
“Wîtaskêwin,” highlights sharing the land
or sharing resources. Giving back to the
communities, whether it is in education,
health, elders/youth programs, employment,
tourism, First Nations culture or sports and
recreation, enriches the lives of many.
In particular, the positive economic
impact generated by SIGA for First Nations
communities continues to impress the First
Nation Chiefs in this province. SIGA has
become an important and significant employer
in Saskatchewan. More than 1,390 First
Nations people work for the organization.
It is with great pride I submit the
Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority Inc.
report ending March 31st, 2010.
