Conditional approval granted for casino in the border city

Conditional approval has been granted for a casino in Lloydminster by the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations.

The facility would be the 7th in the province operated by the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. SIGA was created 20 years ago by the FSIN to manage and operate on-reserve casinos.

According to the province, the organization employs over 1800 people, 65 per cent of whom are First Nations citizens.

Other casinos currently being operated are Dakota Dunes, south of Saskatoon; Northern Lights in Prince Albert; Living Sky in Swift Current; Painted Hand in Yorkon; Bear Claw in Carlyle; and Gold Eagle in North Battleford.

Development of this long-discussed project can finally begin following a few more procedures: a community consultation plan, municipal approval from City of Lloydminster, and amendments to the Gaming Framework Agreement.
