Gaming Trusts and Grants

Gaming trusts and grants are administered pursuant to the requirements of The Lotteries and Gaming Saskatchewan Corporation Act, and the 2002 Gaming Framework Agreement signed between the Province and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN).

The Ministry of Government Relations administers Saskatchewan's legal obligations by distributing casino gaming profits to:

  • the First Nations Trust
  • the Métis Development Fund
  • Community Development Corporations (CDCs)

Origin of Community Development Corporations

Created under the 2002 Gaming Framework Agreement signed between the FSIN and the Government of Saskatchewan. CDCs receive an equivalent to 25 per cent of the net profits of the on-reserve casinos operated by the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA).
