construction_res2015 was a great year for our community, and newsworthy on many levels. As we look back at all we accomplished last year, give yourselves a big pat on the back Swift Current! 

Below is a short sampling of an extraordinary year:

  • We ranked #1 in Saskatchewan and #9 in Canada on CFIB’s Entrepreneurial Cities report
  • Achieved a record $88 million in total construction in 2015
  • Continued to enjoy one of the lowest unemployment rates in Canada
  • Awarded the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games
  • Launched Swift Transit scheduled bus service
  • Awarded SaskPower Natural Gas Power Plant (~$1 billion project)
  • Announced Centennial Plaza and Market District for downtown
  • Keeping Current launched with Being Senior and Mayor in the Morning
  • Completely sold out full inventory of industrial land
  • The Cypress Point residential development was announced

That is just one year’s worth of success, and it was all possible because we’re a community that works together to make things happen.
