Government of Saskatchewan Hosts Indigenous Business Gathering

Released on February 28, 2023

Largest Indigenous Economic Development Event in the Province

The second annual Indigenous Business Gathering will be held on February 28, 2023, at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon. The event will bring together over 500 people from Indigenous and non-Indigenous businesses, municipalities, Crown Corporations and government ministries looking to develop supply chain, procurement and partnership opportunities.

"Saskatchewan is fortunate to have a number of very successful Indigenous companies and organizations that are strong contributors to our province's economic growth," Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to economic reconciliation, and this high-profile event is a great opportunity to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous businesses, Crown Corporations and municipalities in the interest of advancing Indigenous participation in our economy."

This year's event will feature 80 tradeshow booths and will have representatives from all of Saskatchewan's largest Indigenous economic development groups and businesses, as well as local and multi-national companies including Enbridge, who will provide a keynote during the lunch, and BHP, who will join the Indigenous Manufacturing and Contracting Network and Saskatchewan First Nations Natural Resource Centre of Excellence for a discussion in the afternoon. 

"Enbridge sees Indigenous economic partnerships as critical to advancing economic reconciliation and delivering world-class projects that support the energy transition, and we're committed to ensuring Indigenous groups are full participants," Enbridge EVP and President, Liquid Pipelines Colin Gruending said. "We applaud the Government of Saskatchewan for its vision in creating a new organization to steward Indigenous investments in the energy and agricultural sectors of the province."

The event ties into the province's Growth Plan action of growing Indigenous participation in the economy through Saskatchewan's natural resource industries and labour market development.

Saskatchewan's Ministry of Trade and Export Development hosted the first Indigenous Business Gathering in April 2022, which sold-out with more than 300 attendees.
