Innovation Saskatchewan Announces New CEO

Released on January 8, 2020

Minister Responsible for Innovation Saskatchewan Tina Beaudry-Mellor is pleased to announce that after a comprehensive selection process, Kari Harvey will serve as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Innovation Saskatchewan effective January 8.

Harvey has dedicated more than 25 years to the public service, which has included senior leadership roles in the Ministries of Agriculture, Health and Intergovernmental Affairs.  Most recently she has served as the Acting CEO and Chief Operating Officer of Innovation Saskatchewan.

“Kari’s work with our entrepreneurial ecosystem has created trust and co-operation among a sector that is critical to our economic growth,” Beaudry-Mellor said.  “I am excited to work with her to deliver on the targets of the Growth Plan and to push for Saskatchewan’s growing recognition as a tech leader both nationally and internationally.”

The Government of Saskatchewan is taking bold steps to ensure Saskatchewan’s tech-sector stays strong during the next 10 years of growth.  Tripling the tech-sector by 2030 by aggressively pursuing new measures to retain and attract large scale tech employers will help ensure Saskatchewan is on the right path with a modern economy.

In 2017 Innovation Saskatchewan launched Co.Labs, a provincially backed incubator which in less than three years has created 160 jobs, incubated 88 start-ups and secured more than $8 million in investment.  Saskatchewan also offers the Saskatchewan Technology Startup Incentive, the most aggressive tech angel investment incentive program in Western Canada.
