Last week was Innovation Week in Saskatchewan.

The week celebrates researchers, entrepreneurs, organizations, and companies that have shaped the research and technology landscape in the province. 

The recognition week also celebrated nationally, provides an opportunity to profile innovations that have made an impact and the importance of their role in our economy and everyday lives. 

“Innovation is central to our province’s economic growth and supporting the transformation and diversification of our key sectors,” said Minister Responsible for Innovation Saskatchewan Jeremy Harrison.  

He notes investing in innovation translates to more economic opportunities, prosperity, and improved quality of life for the people of Saskatchewan. 

“It is important to celebrate the legacy of innovation in the province and to champion those individuals and organizations whose leadership and achievements have led to those made-in-Saskatchewan solutions that are making a difference in the province and the world,” added Harrison.

Innovation Saskatchewan works directly with industry and external stakeholders to support the commercialization of research and technology and to grow the province’s technology sector.  

Once integrated as a single agency with Innovation Place – the government-owned research parks in Regina and Saskatoon, Innovation Saskatchewan will have a strengthened mandate to drive innovation and ownership in delivering on the goal of tripling the tech sector in the province by 2030.

It will also aim to maximize the economic potential of its research infrastructure assets. 

Saskatchewan’s innovation achievements will be highlighted throughout the week.
