How We Serve

Supporting Saskatchewan communities as they shape their own future.

In a world of rapid change and innovation, we must be open to new and better ways of accomplishing our goals. Working collectively with members and allies, SEDA strives to uncover new solutions in order to support the economic vibrancy and competitiveness of communities and the province at large.
We provide a space where government, business, and non-profit sectors can share expertise, resources, and authority to support communities that cannot be solved by one sector alone.

Your success is our mandate....

Here is how we can help you achieve your goals.

We Offer Community Coaching, Concierge Services and Management Support

Much of economic development is learned on-the-job. SEDA provides an accessible ‘lifeline’ for community leaders and professionals to access on demand. In addition to ongoing coaching and concierge services, SEDA is available to provide interim economic development services and/or management of new staff hired with a community development focus. Have a look at our Coaching and Peer to Peer Mentorship Program.
