Mid-Sask Municipal Alliance Launches Online Business Directory – DiscoverHumboldt.com

After a period of outreach, research and technical management, the Mid-Sask Municipal Alliance is pleased to announce the launch of its Mid-Sask Business Database. The idea is to connect businesses in the MSMA region to entrepreneurs, consumers, suppliers and communities. Fully searchable by industry and business capacity, the database helps companies find what they need, in the format they need.

It also presents exciting opportunities for regional businesses to reach new customers, said Mid-Sask Municipal Alliance CEO Celine Favreau.

“The database is truly set up to generate new sales opportunities for businesses in the central Saskatchewan region. It’s just officially opened to the public, so if businesses in the area haven’t signed up yet, now is the time as we’ll be bringing the service to market over the next few weeks.

The strength of the database lies in the diversity of businesses and services available in the Mid-Sask area, which encompasses Humboldt, Watrous, Jansen, Manitou Beach, Nokomis, Lanigan, Drake, LeRoy and all other communities in one 100 km radius of the BHP Jansen project. Strongly backed by anchor mining giant, BHP, the project encourages support for local manufacturing, mining, trades, technical and professional services offered within these communities, impacting the economic growth of the region and positively affecting businesses, families and local communities.

A two-year funding commitment from BHP, along with in-kind support from key partners Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce, Watrous-Manitou Marketing Group and Carlton Trail College, enabled regional cooperation and a focus on intent, database design and functionality.

The MSMA press release notes that each year in Saskatchewan, $10 billion in sales are currently paid out to companies providing goods and services in support of industrial, mining and energy projects. Regional businesses are encouraged to pursue opportunities in these sectors, as well as in important regional sectors such as agriculture, tourism and business services, either by supplying goods and services directly to a project or by s Jointly partnering with other regional businesses to strengthen a contracting or procurement opportunity.

“We’re going to be marketing the database over a six-month period and putting a lot of effort into promoting the directory,” notes Favreau, “so companies that are registered will have the opportunity to be featured.”
