I would like offer my sincere thanks to our customers and employees for making 2015-16 another successful year for the
Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. The support of our customers and hard work by our employees enabled SIGA to achieve
revenues of $258.3M and net earnings of $86.3M of which all is shared with our beneficiaries across Saskatchewan. We are also
very pleased to report this is our fifth consecutive year where net earnings have exceeded $80M.
This past year saw SIGA achieve another significant milestone as we celebrated 20 years of operations. Throughout this time we
have developed six casino properties across Saskatchewan with the support of our First Nation and Tribal Council partners. We have
also developed strong community relationships in all locations by keeping a priority on securing the benefits from our operations on
a regional and provincial wide basis. As an operator we keep a focus on continuously improving the customer experience through
excellent customer service, providing the newest gaming product and memorable facilities with first-rate amenities.
SIGA is proud to be one of the largest and most progressive employers in Saskatchewan. We opened our doors 20 years ago with
just over 550 employees, and grew our workforce to over 1,875 people today of which 65% are First Nation. I am very proud to
report that SIGA placed in the top five across North America in receiving the “Best Casinos to Work For” designation from the North
America Casino Journal. We value all members of the SIGA team. Their commitment to delivering a superior hospitality experience is
the foundation for our long-term success as a company.
As a 100% non-profit organization it makes us proud to return our profits to our First Nations owners, community development
corporations and the province of Saskatchewan. In addition to distributing our net profits, we allocated over $1.2M through our
Community Investment Program to support community initiatives. We are very proud of the impact we have made in the past two
decades, and we look forward to continuing partnerships with communities across the province into the future.
On behalf of SIGA’s executive team, I would like to acknowledge the Chiefs and Elders for their vision in the development of a First
Nation owned and operated corporation. I would like to thank the Board of Directors for their focus on setting our direction and the
governance oversight they provide. Your strategic direction ensures SIGA’s continued success for the First Nations people, and the
province of Saskatchewan.
