Many of our local businesses are owned and operated by people who live in this community and are invested in our community’s welfare and future. They provide our community with jobs. They aren’t just crucial drivers of our local economy; they are at the heart of our community. When you purchase at locally owned businesses rather than out of town-owned, more money is kept in the community. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base.

Yesterday members from local businesses, organizations, and municipalities attended the Thrive Sask Workshop at the Gull Lake Community Hall. The workshop was facilitated by Heritage Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Economic Development Association. Participants started with an exercise on intangible cultural heritage that helped participants connect with whom we are as a community.
In the planning session, the group identified three priorities it wants to accomplish over the next 90 days. The three key priorities are as follows:
- Utilization of Vacant Buildings in the Downtown.
- Look for Ways to Stimulate Local Jobs.
- Help Existing Businesses
The tasks needed to complete the goals were identified and placed in 30, 60, and 90-daytime frames depending on when they need to be completed.
The Gull Lake Economic Development Committee will take the lead and work with participants help to complete tasks. The plan is ambitious, and the EDC will be busy in the coming days and weeks as they work on tasks. We will keep you posted on their plans and tasks as they move forward.
