Corporate Overview
SIGA casinos entertain over 4.2 million guests annually.
With over 1,900 employees including over 1,200
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 $260M and net profits over $80M.
SIGA casinos offer entertainment and excitement,
including 1,870 slot machines, 52 live table games, live on
stage entertainment and a full line of food and beverage
services with SIGA staff providing traditional First Nations
hospitality and service which is second to none.
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.
Profits generated from SIGA’s operations are administered
by the Province of Saskatchewan.
• 50% is shared with the First Nations Trust which is
distributed to Saskatchewan First Nation communities;
• 25% is shared with regional Community Development
Corporations (CDCs) which are situated in the casino
locations for local initiatives. The CDCs which are
independent of SIGA, distribute this money to charitable
and not-for-profit community organizations.
• 25% is shared with the Provincial Government’s general
revenue fund.
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.
