This land has been a gathering place for thousands of years, a place where people come together to create new and meaningful connections under the living skies.
Through our Legacy Builders Project, we strive to honour this tradition of kinship and connection in a way that supports local businesses and the broader Saskatoon economy.
Prominent community members, natural-born leaders, and experts in their respective fields, our Legacy Builders work in partnership with Discover Saskatoon to bring conferences, meetings, business and sporting events to our city. They help create lasting economic impact, with positive ripple effects felt throughout our community for generations to come.
What is the Legacy Project
The purpose of the Legacy Project is to engage local experts in the fields of sport, economic sectors, and community development to support Discover Saskatoon in prospecting and bidding on events that will drive economic prosperity in Saskatoon. By leveraging the expertise of local individuals, we aim to enhance the global recognition and profile of Saskatoon for excellence in sport, economic sectors, and community development, ultimately contributing to an improved quality of life for all residents.
