Construction Set To Begin On Living Sky Casino

The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority has high hopes for a soon-to-be-built casino in Swift Current.


Not only will the Living Sky Casino be situated in a relatively untapped market, it will also be close to the Trans-Canada Highway.


SIGA spokesperson Pat Cook says unlike some other SIGA casinos that were established in renovated existing structures, this one is being built from the ground up.


Cook says this will allow the File Hills-Qu’Appelle Tribal Council to include some unique features — including a multi-use performing arts theatre.


A sod-turning ceremony was held late a few weeks ago.


Construction should begin next month, and the facility is expected to be ready by late 2008.


When it’s finished, it will be Saskatchewan’s sixth Indian-owned casino and employ up to 200 people.
