THE TOURISM SASKATCHEWAN ACT PROCLAIMED

Released on July 3, 2012

The Government of Saskatchewan proclaimed The Tourism Saskatchewan Act on July 1 and announced the new board of directors.

This follows the recommendations of the Tourism System Review made public in March 2012. The resulting changes will adjust and realign governance and operating priorities to better serve both the provincial industry and the people and businesses it supports.

The new direction for tourism in Saskatchewan brings with it a new board of directors.

"These changes help to move the industry forward," incoming Board Chair Jack Brodsky said. "The previous board and staff have our sincere gratitude for the excellent work and representation they have provided. Our new board members are dedicated to carrying on this work and to implementing our vision for this vibrant Saskatchewan industry."

The newly appointed board members include:

  • Jack Brodsky, Board Chair - Saskatoon;
  • Brian Simpson, Deputy Chair - Waskesiu;
  • Irene Seiferling - Saskatoon;
  • Dana Soonias - Saskatoon;
  • Sandra LeBarre - Naicam;
  • Lionel Tootoosis - Swift Current; and
  • Norm Beug - Regina.

The move of Tourism under the Ministry of the Economy is in recognition of the importance of the sector to the economy.

"Tourism is a growing $1.7 billion industry in Saskatchewan, and we want that growth to continue," Minister Responsible for Tourism Tim McMillan said. "I am confident the collective expertise of this board will build on everything Saskatchewan has to offer."
