Saskatchewan is emerging as a national economic leader, primed and ready for newcomers: new investment, new expansions, and new people. It is happening now. Our prosperity is attracting interest and promises to generate even more activity, provided we continue to properly promote and encourage it.
Enterprise Saskatchewan was created to do precisely that. It represents a new approach to economic development, with leadership from a board driven by input straight from the province's key sectors. The result is an agency expressly designed to overcome barriers to growth and to find or create new opportunities—essentially, to press the Saskatchewan advantage wherever possible.
Ultimately, this will help keep Saskatchewan among the most competitive and attractive business climates in Canada—and the world—in the months and years ahead.
