Today, Saskatchewan’s agri-food industry celebrated the grand opening of the new Agri-Food Innovation Centre (AFIC), a 43,000-square foot facility that will diversify the Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre’s (Food Centre) capacity to develop and process products from concept to commercialization.

Saskatchewan’s unique “patent box” incentive, introduced in 2017 and designed to position the province as an attractive location for the development and launch of innovative products, has secured its first successful investment. Clean Seed Agricultural Technologies Ltd. (“Clean Seed”), headquartered in Burnaby, B.C., has received approval of its scientific eligibility under the Saskatchewan Commercial Innovation Incentive (SCII).  The company’s technology has proven to be innovative and first of its kind and Clean Seed can now establish and grow its presence in Saskatchewan in order to receive the benefits of this incentive.

Saskatchewan recorded the strongest manufacturing sales growth in western Canada, with an increase of 13.5 per cent compared to the previous year (seasonally adjusted). This was the second highest percentage growth among the provinces and stronger than a national increase of 6.0 per cent. “Saskatchewan’s diverse and resilient economy is paving the way for strengthened sales in the manufacturing sector,” Economy Minister Steven Bonk said. “This sector continues to produce high-value goods which are shipped to markets across the world - in turn strengthening our province’s economy that has been projected to lead Canada in growth over the next two years.”
