- EFN Staff | July 30, 2018
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) recently released its 2017-2018 Annual Report. SIGA reported $252.3 million in revenue for the 2017-2018 fiscal year which is a slight jump from the 2016-17 fiscal year. In 2017-2018, SIGA’s community relations sponsorship program invested $1.25 million into charitable and non-profit organizations in Saskatchewan.
“I am pleased to report that 2017-2018 was, despite continued economic uncertainty, another very successful year,” said SIGA CEO Zane Hansen in an email statement. “As a non-profit organization, our priority is to be a socially responsible business that shares success with the communities where we live and work. In addition, returning 100 per cent of gaming profits to our beneficiaries, SIGA once again invested $1.25 million through our community investment program to support over 500 community groups across Saskatchewan.”
According to the report, 29 per cent of SIGA’s employees participated in our Employee Volunteer Program. Together, SIGA employees spent 3,961 hours in our communities at more than 100 events and organizations.
In the strategic plan overview, SIGA’s plan is to focus on developing an intimate relationship with customers and offering products and services to those customers that increase revenue, income and employment.
“We are proud of the impact SIGA has had here in our province and look forward to the developments to come in 2018,” said Hansen. “Together with our customers, employees and stakeholders, we will continue to fulfill our mandate to strengthen the lives of First Nation people through employment, economic growth, and positive community relations.”
