SEDA is pleased to support the Province of Saskatchewan in hosting a Heritage Forum on February 22, 2018 in Saskatoon. The forum will be held at the Western Development Museum from 9:30 am to 4:15 pm.  FORUM REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

Public engagement and consultation are key to any successful community development initiative. Whether creating strategic plans, or other types of development tools and programs, involving citizens in the process taps the collective knowledge of residents, builds support, promotes ownership of decisions, and ensures a diversity of points of view.

The 2018 Municipal Heritage Forum is an opportunity to learn how four Saskatchewan communities undertook citizen-driven initiatives that leverage local heritage and culture resources to stimulate economic development and enhance the quality of community life. At the forum, the project consultants will share best practices for public engagement, and describe tools that were developed to implement the communities’ visions for growth and prosperity. Guests from the case-study communities will discuss what it took to implement their projects, and describe the impacts the projects are having on their communities.

1. Melfort: Design Guidelines for Downtown Revitalization
2. Prince Albert: Creating an Award-Winning Municipal Cultural Plan

An AGENDA FOR THE DAY as well as an INFORMATIONAL FLYER may be shared with your colleagues.
