Government of Saskatchewan Throne Speech
It was a great honour to attend Premier Scott Moe’s Throne Speech delivered by the Governor General in Regina yesterday. I had the privilege to sit with my colleague Tyler Willox along with Tina Beaudry-Mellor who graciously explained to me all the legislative protocols as they were taking place.
My overall impression was of the business-friendly environment that has been created in Saskatchewan with investments in infrastructure, mining, agriculture, IT, energy, healthcare, and education. Additionally, I was impressed by the recognition of indigenous owned businesses operating in a variety of sectors within the province. It is no wonder that Saskatchewan is recognized as a great place to live and work.
As an ardent supporter of the tech sector, I also was glad to see the success of four Saskatchewan-based tech firms highlighted in the Globe and Mail’s report on Canada’s Top Growing Companies: Vendasta, 7shifts, Coconut Software, and sMedia.
My overall impression of the day was about how bright the future is for Saskatchewan. It made me proud to be included in the events of the day and grateful to be a part of the growth happening in Saskatchewan. ISM is proud to be the largest IT employer in Saskatchewan and we are participating in Saskatchewan’s growth mandate to add 100,000 jobs in the province by 2030. I am personally committed to growing IT jobs in the province to add to the economy and provide the services and mission critical data for all our clients in Saskatchewan.
