SIGA employees from the central office and all of its affiliated casinos volunteered their time at various locations in their communities, including a facelift for the Princess Alexandra Community School play area for kindergarten students in Saskatoon.

“We have a lot of good partners like Princess Alexandra that we work with and we talk with them and just say, ‘what would be something that we could help out and do?’” SIGA president and CEO Zane Hansen said.

“It’s such a good province to be here and do business in. It is where we live, work and play. So we’re always glad to give back and do what we can to help out in the community.”
