Priority Saskatchewan Announces New Leadership

Released on September 12, 2014

Minister responsible for SaskBuilds Gordon Wyant announced today the addition of Lionel LaBelle to head the Priority Saskatchewan initiative, a branch of SaskBuilds.

In June, the provincial government announced the creation of Priority Saskatchewan, which is responsible for ensuring Saskatchewan businesses are treated fairly when bidding on government and Crown contracts.

“I am very pleased to welcome Mr. LaBelle as senior vice president of the team,” Wyant said.  “His more than three decades of experience as a successful Saskatchewan entrepreneur in the areas of agribusiness, construction and manufacturing will be invaluable in implementing changes needed to improve the experience for local business.”

LaBelle was most recently the president and chief executive officer of the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership, a member-based partnership between the public and private sectors focused on assisting Saskatchewan exporters in national and international markets.

Priority Saskatchewan is leading a cross-government and Crown corporation review of current contract tendering practices.  Beginning this fall, Priority Saskatchewan will lead consultations across the province with Saskatchewan businesses to seek their input on opportunities to improve government procurement.
