VLT Camera Security

Given the increased prize value resulting from the recently announced “Province Wide Progressive”, a Western Canada Lottery Corp (WCLC) Field Technician will be visiting your establishment over the next few months to install one or more cameras above the VLT’s.

The recording is not a live feed, but rather will be stored at your site and downloaded by WCLC as required.

In the event of a dispute, the security footage may be reviewed to identify winners.

"Fore the Future" Golf Tournament a Success

 

For the second year in a row, the winning team was, (from left), Todd Szautner and Ken Campbell from the Muenster Hotel, and, Lawson Harkness, from the Fife Lake Hotel

The 8th annual “Fore the Future” tournament was held at Saskatchewan’s Golf Kenosee in Moose Mountain Provincial Park.

The Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA) awards annual scholarships to students who are studying for a career in the hospitality industry. “Fore the Future” is our major fundraising event.

The tournament attracted 60 hospitality industry professionals, giving hoteliers, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders the opportunity to network with colleagues, and unwind at one of the province’s premier golf facilities. Participants also had the satisfaction of knowing that they were assisting students and contributing to the next generation of hospitality professionals.

The weather, although a bit cool, cooperated, and the day ended with a barbeque steak dinner at Golf Kenosee.

Thank you to all participants and sponsors.

 

The 9th Annual Golf Fore Hospitality Tournament will be held mid-September 2017. The SHHA looks forward to hosting this exciting fundraising event. Watch for details next summer.

Youth Safety Education Day

For the fifth year in a row, the Ministry of Education proclaimed September 10th as Youth Safety Education Day.   Youth Safety Education Day focuses on educating and encouraging schools and other organizations involved with youth to be mindful and informed about workplace safety. 

On Sept 12th there was a crowd of over 800 youth gathered for the largest Youth Safety Education Day event in SHSA’s history! The day started with an intro from our MC Sarah Wenaus, SHSA Operations Manager followed by a speech by the Honourable Mr. Don Morgan, Deputy Premier of Saskatchewan, Minister of Education and Minister of Labour Relations & Workplace Safety.  

 As one of the largest employers of youth in Saskatchewan, the service & hospitality industries have taken responsibility for driving the much needed change in culture.  The Service & Hospitality Safety Association (SHSA) has developed resources and tools that partnering organizations may use to educate and inspire youth across the province.  This year alone, over 50 major partnering organizations are working with the SHSA to reach an audience of well over 4,000 youth in an impactful and meaningful way. 

“The Government of Saskatchewan has done a great job shining a light on the epidemic of injuries that our young people face.  In an unprecedented fashion, industry has responded and worked hard to not only make the workplaces safer, but to reach out to kids before they even enter the workplace,” George Marshall, CEO of SHSA.

“I am proud of the leadership and work the hotel industry has done on workplace safety and in regards to youth in particular,” says Jim Bence, CEO of the Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA).  “Injury rates are down by over 50 per cent in the hotel industry over the last five years and that has made the hotel industry one of the safest in Canada and a great place for young people to work.”
