Saskatchewan’s Newest Chamber of Commerce

“For years there has been an identified need for an Indigenous focussed Chamber in the province,” said Dinsdal. “It was decided in the fall of 2017 that an attempt would again be made to develop this idea. This attempt was begun with the intention of being led by members of the Indigenous community and those who work in the community.”

As the idea was discussed with more people outside of the initial group, more people in the business community have become interested and the result included the creation of the Indigenous Chamber of Commerce of Saskatchewan.

“The ICCS is a collaboration of Leaders in the Indigenous Business Community,” said Dinsdale. “The goal is to create an association for people to interact, learn, and work together to improve businesses in the indigenous community. We work with partners to improve commerce for all Saskatchewan.”
