SASKATOON — PrairiesCan announced a federal investment of over $7,600,000 to help five Saskatchewan businesses access the resources needed to scale-up and bring innovative products and services to new markets. This funding will support the training of highly skilled workers through the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology’s Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Preparation Program and Indigenous Practical Nursing Program.

These investments will help ensure that Saskatchewan businesses thrive as strong contributors to the Prairie economy, and that the province achieves its potential with a highly skilled and trained workforce.

“Saskatchewan is a great place to grow your business with so many new opportunities in food and ingredient processing, technology and advanced manufacturing,” said Dan Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan. “Adding to the strengths of the province’s natural resources and agricultural sectors, they are helping to diversify the economy and ensure a prosperous, sustainable future for Saskatchewan workers. Our government is continuing to work with industry leaders and educational institutions to ensure that businesses here have the support they need to succeed, and the skilled workers to get them there.”
