Economic Development and Investment Committee’s objective is to market the Corridor to potential investors. The Committee will work with representatives from the economic development agencies and stakeholders such as the City of Moose Jaw Economic Development Office, the Regina Regional Opportunities Commission, the Global Transportation Hub Authority, Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership, the Ministry of Economy and various federal government departments.
