Sask Sport is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization committed to enriching Saskatchewan communities. As the provincial federation for amateur sport since 1972, Sask Sport develops collective programs and services beneficial to sport.
Today, our membership consists of 78 provincial and multi-sport organizations and districts that represent more than 330,000 registered participants in the province. Sask Sport’s collective programs, services, funding and grant initiatives foster opportunities for Saskatchewan residents of all cultures, backgrounds, ages and abilities to participate in and benefit from sport.
To enrich Saskatchewan communities
How Sask Sport conducts its business is important. By conducting ourselves ethically and with integrity, we continue to build and benefit from a strong and impactful lottery-funded sport, culture and recreation system in Saskatchewan.
Sask Sport’s Code of Conduct applies to all Board of Directors, committee members and employees of Sask Sport and its subsidiaries. The Code of Conduct includes guidance on how to conduct business according to Sask Sport’s values.
Sask Sport also operates Sask Lotteries, the main fundraiser for sport, culture and recreation in the province, as well as other entities with a common goal to support and drive vibrant communities.
Since 1974, Sask Lotteries has been designated as the provincial sales and marketing arm of the Western Canada Lottery Corporation. Products including LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and ZING tickets are available. Through an agreement with the Government of Saskatchewan, proceeds from Sask Lotteries are dedicated to eligible sport, culture and recreation groups to benefit communities throughout the province. Every year, this lottery funded system benefits more than 12,000 community groups in the province.
Sask Sport works in partnership with SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association to administer the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation. Through this fund, three volunteer-led committees distribute lottery proceeds to provincial and community organizations. The Trust Fund also supports the Sask Lotteries Community Grant program, as well as seven sport, culture and recreation districts.
Sask Sport operates the Admin Centre for Sport, Culture and Recreation to provide high-quality and cost-effective services to non-profit organizations. Services include office and meeting spaces, accounting, printing services and more.
Since 2006, the registered Give Kids a Chance Charity has served children in Saskatchewan who face barriers to participation. The supported programs include Dream Brokers and KidSport.
