The Province of Saskatchewan and the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN) signed a 25-year Gaming Framework Agreement on June 11, 2002, replacing the original agreement from 1995.
The Gaming Framework Agreement between the province and the FSIN allows for the continued operation of casinos in the province through the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA). SIGA casinos are located in North Battleford, Prince Albert, Yorkton, Swift Current, on the White Bear First Nation near Carlyle and on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation south of Saskatoon. SLGA is responsible for co-ordinating implementation of the agreement on behalf of the province.
Following a review by the province and the FSIN, the Gaming Framework Agreement was amended effective June 11, 2007. The amendments included changes to the casino revenue sharing formula, improved accountability provisions respecting the operation of Community Development Corporations and increased funding for problem gambling awareness, prevention and treatment.
