Are You Ready for the Crisis?

George Marshall, CEO, Service Hospitality

Three years ago, the Government of Saskatchewan enacted legislation which incorporated psychological health and safety into the domain of the Workers’ Compensation Board.  This legislation was easily the most progressive of any jurisdiction in the country.  It went beyond merely incorporating post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to effectively allowing psychological injury or illness which is diagnosable under the DSM-5 and is related to work.  Further, the new legislation gives a rebuttable presumption to the work, which means that WCB will automatically assume the claim is work related until the employer has proven otherwise.

Ordering in is Becoming Part of Everyday Life

Loraine Nyokong. Director, Restaurant Success – West at SkipTheDishes

In Canada, food delivery is a 4.1 billion dollar industry, which is projected to grow by double digits each year. New trends in delivery are being fueled by rapidly-changing customer preferences and behaviour, and new opportunities for restaurant partners are growing alongside those changes.

Good Wine Goes With Good Food

Jill Childerhose, Doug Reichel Wine Marketing

I truly fell in love with wine when I realized that wine made me fall even more in love with food. I remember the first time I was guided to a quality wine that paired well with a planned menu. The wine made the food taste different and better, and the food altered the way the flavours of the wine showed themselves.

CEO Message: Plan B - "Lights, Camera, ACTION"

Jim Bence, SHHA President & CEO

Other jurisdictions in Canada have used their natural resources, mountains, parks, shorelines, and their wildlife as draws for visitors and the money they bring. 

Other provinces also use their natural resources as a way to attract another kind of client, a massive client. That great big beast looking to spend billions of dollars in Canada is the film industry. Yup the same industry that we punted years ago.

When the Sask. Party rescinded the film tax credit, it killed the industry here and the movie producers went elsewhere. The business was gladly gobbled up by other provinces hungry to satisfy their diversified economies.  Economies that weren’t dependent on one source of revenue.
