Saskatchewan’s Minister of Advanced Education spoke earlier this week about the current state of the province’s economic, as well as that of its capital city.
Tina Beaudry-Mellor spoke at a Regina Chamber of Commerce Luncheon about how Saskatchewan’s economy is on the right track for stable growth following a rough spell, as well how confidence has increased in Regina.
“I looked at some of the figures from the Regina Economic Development Region the other day and investor confidence is up in this quarter one in the last two years,” she said. “There some really positive signs, I think, that things are really starting to turn around.”
Is it a great time to be a young entrepreneur in Saskatchewan? Beaudry-Mellor certainly believes so.
“The bulk of our economy rests on the backbone of small businesses,” she said. “They’re the number one job creators in this province. So there’s a recognition, I think, of that.”
The tech sector is also making significant strides in Saskatchewan, with Saskatoon being a leader in the country when it comes to work in the tech sector, second only to Waterloo.
