SIGA’s mandate is to
generate revenue, create
economic development and
employment for First Nations
people in Saskatchewan.
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) is the operator of First
Nations casinos in Saskatchewan.
SIGA casinos entertain over four million guests annually. With over 2,100
employees including over 1,300 First Nations employees, SIGA is a top 15
employer in Saskatchewan. The entertainment company is currently ranked in
Saskatchewan’s top 25 companies with annual revenues over $250M and net
profits over $60M.
Our 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 1,870 slot machines,
52 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 and
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 (CDCs) situated in 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 will deliver sustainable net income
and employment opportunities to support
First Nations development in Saskatchewan.
SIGA will strengthen the lives of First Nations
people through employment, economic growth,
positive community relations and financial self
reliance. This will be done through the operation
of distinctive First Nations gaming destination
resorts that reflect the traditional aspects of
our First Nations culture and hospitality.
