Saskatchewan Communities


Accredited Economic Development Organization

The Saskatchewan Accredited Economic Development Organization(SAEDO) Program provides a framework for building a sustainable community and economic development organization and a vibrant community.

Four building blocks are inherent to the program:

  1. Leadership
  2. Economic Development
  3. Placemaking
  4. Promotion

Standards of achievement are set within each of these four areas. A community may apply to be certified by a Peer Review Committee after successfully reaching these benchmarks. 

A documentation review and visit to the community is designed to assess the organization in action and the community must prepared to support travel costs of the Review Team ( in lieu of a certification fee).

Please contact the SEDA office for more information on this program.
