Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA)
Through the operation of six First Nations gaming entertainment destinations, The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) is strengthening the lives of First Nations people through employment, economic growth, and positive community relations.
Since opening in 1996, SIGA has demonstrated that it has been committed to operate in a socially responsible manner. It began with the FSIN chiefs recognizing the need for an entity to address the risk of problem gambling and so the First Nation Addiction and Rehabilitation Foundation was established. That early concern to be proactive to the possibility of high risk gambling behaviour has evolved throughout the years and SIGA casinos now feature a comprehensive responsible gaming strategy which continues to grow with the gaming industry.
