Northern Business Task Force
The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce’s Northern Business Task Force was formed to discuss current and future issues and opportunities in Saskatchewan’s remote northern areas and make appropriate recommendations to ensure that the potential of the region is realized.
The Northern Business Task Force is made up of representatives from companies and organizations that operate in northern Saskatchewan, as well as people who have expertise in dealing with social and economic issues in the North.
The Task Force hosts periodic northern tours of remote northern Saskatchewan communities and takes along senior managers from the provincial and federal government, elected officials, business owners, and representatives from the media. The most recent tour was held in September 2016 and one of the participants was Mr. Cory Kolt, Manager of Policy & Communications with the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce. He wrote an excellent summary of the Tour and it can be accessed here.
The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce also created a report containing recommendations on how to deal with a variety of challenges and opportunities facing remote northern Saskatchewan, click here to see the full report.
