Making the Most out of this Historic Opportunity
Saskatchewan’s economy has undeniably changed over the past 6 years. Are we late bloomers, or leading a new economic wave? What led to this change, is it sustainable, how is this economy different than other areas of North America; and what are the implications for employers. These areas will be covered in Mr. Larry Hiles’s presentation “Making the Most of this Historic Opportunity”.
