BUILDING SUCCESS
OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS:
Dakota Dunes Casino is a $60M dollar project that opened in
August 2007 on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation. The facility
contains 86,500 square feet of entertainment space and is
recognized for its award winning design. The gaming floor offers
606 slot machines, 19 live table games, and a ten station Touchbet
Electronic Roulette/Mini-Baccarat game. Live Games expanded
with a Craps table this year which has caught the attention of
many players on the gaming floor. The casino also provides
the convenience of a deli, a restaurant and a fully functional
multi-purpose Tatanka Tipi room. The Dakota Dunes Casino
has Responsible Gaming accreditation.
Dakota Dunes Casino has hosted a variety of conferences and
performances over the past year including Shooter Jennings
and Waymores Outlaws, Straight No Chaser, “Grits & Glamour”
Pam Tillis & Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous
Superlatives, Charlie Major, Bill Anderson, and Juice Newton.
EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT HIGHLIGHTS:
The management team continues to focus on developing First Nation
employees by creating a talented workforce through educational
opportunities, encouraging positive leadership, and establishing
positive role model behaviour which is conducive to a healthy
work environment. The Human Resources team partners with
departmental managers to work together on creating a balanced
and happy working culture. Dakota Dunes Casino is one of SIGA’s
largest casino employing over 400 people of which 71% of
employees are First Nations people.
SHARING SUCCESS
VOLUNTEERISM:
Over the past year this dedicated volunteer committee has taken on
large community initiatives like partnering with Habitat for Humanity
to build a home for a family in need and adopting St. Mary’s
School. Volunteers served at St. Mary’s Christmas Dinner and
collected enough toys so that every student received a Christmas
gift. This last year, volunteers worked hard to make families feel at
home by preparing home-cooked meals for those who stay at the
Ronald McDonald House. Employee volunteers remain committed
to supporting local communities by participating in events like our
annual Pow Wow.
