Events & Activities
With “support local” being the phrase on everyone’s lips following our economic recovery from COVID-19, this year’s theme was #SaskBuilt.
Everything we showcased this week focused on celebrating local talent, Saskatchewan success stories, and examples of construction excellence in our communities.
Highlighting amazing skill sets #SaskBuilt
Showcasing the physical structures that Saskatchewan residents enjoy as a result.

We're so grateful for every single submission we received in this year's #SaskBuilt photo contest.
Instilled the significant impact construction has on our economy
Meetings, letters, and quite literally waving a flag.
We obtained official proclamations from all over the province from multiple levels of government to recognize April 19-23, 2021 as Saskatchewan Construction Week. In some cases, we even arranged for the SCW flag to be flown at City Hall!
Showing gratitude to construction professionals
THANK YOU to the people building our communities.
We surprised several live construction crews in various cities across Saskatchewan with some delicious treats, hot beverages and meals - just a small gesture to say thank you to the skilled tradespeople who build our communities every day!
Construction Hall of Fame Awards
Celebrating this year's inductee...Kelly Miller!
The Saskatchewan Construction Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the advancement of the construction industry in Saskatchewan.
Kelly Miller began his career in 1979 as the lone journeyperson carpenter on staff at what is now RNF Ventures Ltd. He has held almost every position since then, believing that "the only way you can make a difference is if you sit at the table."
Congratulations on your well deserved award, Kelly!
Acknowledging construction's ability to respond and adapt to COVID-19
Construction was one of the few industries able to keep working during the pandemic.
We wanted to give a HUGE shout out to construction for their ability to remain an allowable service throughout the pandemic, with zero cases of on-site outbreaks.
Construction professionals are quite used to following safety regulations on a daily basis. COVID-19 protocols were simply another set of rules to follow that they took in stride.
The ability to keep building our communities, keep us safe, and keep the economy moving was invaluable to Saskatchewan.
