  5. Economic Development Week


Add Saskatchewan’s Economic Development Week logo to your online and digital communication to promote May 9 to 15, 2021.  Designed by Métis artist Lexi Brunet,  it underlines the ‘catalytic’ role of community & economic    developers. Within Indigenous culture, fire is the heart of people. We all have fire within ourselves, within our families and within our communities. 

Since 2016, SEDA and partner SIEDN have joined the International Economic Development Council in designating one week each May to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere. 

The Province of Saskatchewan has proclaimed May 9 to 15, 2021 as Economic Development Week in Saskatchewan.  Monday May 10 has been proclaimed as Indigenous Economic Development Day.
