SASKATCHEWAN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WEEK May 8-12, 2023
Since 2016, SEDA and partner SIEDN have joined the International Economic Development Council in designating one week each May to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere.
Celebrated annually during the second week of May, you can engage your local community year round by downloading our Toolkit.
For 2023, the Government of Saskatchewan has designated May 8-12 to be Economic Development Week, and May 8 to be Indigenous Economic Development Day.
