MISSION

SIGA will strengthen the lives of First

Nations people through employment,

economic growth, positive community

relations and achieving 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.

VISION

SIGA will deliver sustainable net

income and employment opportunities

to support First Nations development

in Saskatchewan.

SIGA casinos entertain over four million guests annually. SIGA

employs over 1,875 people including over 1,200 who identify

as First Nations. The entertainment company currently ranks

in Saskatchewan’s top 35 companies with annual revenues of

$258.3M and net profits over $86.3M.

SIGA casinos offer entertainment and excitement, including

2,120 slot machines, 56 live table games, live onstage

entertainment and a full line of food and beverage services.

SIGA employees provide a second-to-none customer service

experience, rooted in traditional understandings of hospitality

found in First Nations culture.

Under the

First Nations Gaming Act

in 1995, the Federation

of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, formerly the Federation

of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Inc. (FSIN) created the

Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. In 1996, SIGA was

incorporated under

The Non-Profit Corporations Act, 1995

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 First Nations Trust, which distributes 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 minimize the potential for harm.
