Co-operatives Week Recognizes Contributions to Saskatchewan Economy

Released on October 18, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed October 17 - 23 as Co-operatives Week in Saskatchewan to recognize the importance of co-operative businesses for our province's economy and communities. 

"Co-operative businesses create 15,000 jobs in Saskatchewan and provide critical products and services across the province," Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Co-operatives bring employment and investment opportunities to people in our communities and help drive economic development." 

Approximately 800 co-operatives are currently operating in Saskatchewan in 24 different economic and social sectors including manufacturing, financial services, retail, child care and health care. 

The profits generated by co-operative businesses remain mostly in the province, creating economic value and opportunity for Saskatchewan communities. 

Co-operatives Week has been held annually across the country since 1982.

This year, recognition during Co-operatives Week in Saskatchewan will include a flag raising ceremony, the Saskatchewan Co-operative Merit Awards and the #LocalCoopLove online scavenger hunt.
