A group of Rural Municipalities in southern Saskatchewan, the South Saskatchewan Ready partnership, was foreseeing that a future economic calamity will unfold in 2030, the closure of the SaskPower coal fired power generating station and the Westmoreland coal mine. As the program lead Lorne Boyle of Mandate Consulting guided the team to provide a four-sector feasibility recommendation to stave off the economic calamity of a $350M GDP reduction caused by the federal government mandated shutdown of the local coal fired generation station in Coronach. A food safety ecosystem is the economic anchor of the new green-energy economy which will propel the region to recover $250M in GDP over a 30 year span. The project was selected as Canadian Champion and won the prestigious 2022 Constantinus Gold Medal for the best management consulting project in the world.
Under the banner of Amistra Consulting, five consulting companies formed an expert team to provide a project solution for South Saskatchewan Ready. The consulting project evaluated a multitude of opportunities to recommend a slate of 43 projects for implementation over a 30 year period, the result of which can be a regeneration of $250 million to $300 million of economic activity.
What’s happened since the study was published?
The regional partnership has created a significant momentum by launching projects from the recommendations, it has already launched twelve development projects and South Saskatchewan Ready has been recognized for its foresight by winning a Saskatchewan Regional Cooperation Award.
