The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority has been named one of Saskatchewan’s top employers.

The organization was given the distinction by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers Project, which aims to recognize the country’s best places to work. The project has been running for 13 years.

SIGA President and CEO Zane Hansen says he was thrilled about the recognition and what it means for them.

“To be named a Saskatchewan Top Employer shows we’re being true to our guiding principles and providing an environment where employees feel supported in their career and personal goals,” said Hansen in a media release. “We thank our employees for their dedication to SIGA and to delivering the best in First Nation hospitality and entertainment.”

SIGA employs nearly 1,800 people, with 64 per cent of their workforce comprised of First Nations people.
