ThriveSask Field Guides

The ThriveSask Program uses an action planning framework to guide community development efforts. It aims to harness the social, economic, physical, and cultural assets that set a place apart, and ultimately leads to tangible outcomes that benefit the entire community.

SEDA facilitators are available to guide community activations and action plans on a cost recovery basis.

The following four Field Guides align with the ThriveSask program pillars and are excellent tools for those engaged in rural economic development.

LEADERSHIP – Formal and informal leaders must be future focused to chart the course and engage citizens in the process. Leaders are action oriented, accountable and partnership driven.

ECONOMIC VITALITY – A multi-dimensional approach that recognizes economic, environmental and social well-being are interdependent. Asset based with a lens on local and regional market dynamics. Investment ready and entrepreneur friendly.

PLACEMAKING – Leveraging the natural and built environment to positively impact individual and community health. Capitalizing on the foundation of tangible and intangible heritage.

PROMOTION – Engaging residents as well as non-residents in celebrating the unique cultural heritage of each community. Supporting local economies.
