Welcome to the Saskatchewan Economics Association (SEA), the Saskatchewan affiliated chapter to the Canadian Association for Business Economics (CABE).
SEA was launched in 2013 as a rebranding of its predecessor, the Organization of Saskatchewan Applied Economic Research, established in 1996, to reflect the increasingly diversified membership of the association. SEA membership is open to all individuals and agencies interested in impacts upon the Saskatchewan economy and the drivers of economic innovation, including: economic policy analysts; certified financial, management and accounting officials; economic development consultants; statisticians; banking officials; university officials; and students of economics. SEA welcomes members from the private sector, non-profits, universities, and governments, and offers a networking platform for individuals to exchange information on different parts of the Saskatchewan economy.
SEA hosts annual conferences exploring drivers of Saskatchewan’s economic growth and economic policy to improve the quality of life in areas such as:
- Resources (oil & gas, potash, and uranium)
- Labour market
In addition to the annual conference, SEA hosts guest speakers and webinars in partnership with CABE and its affiliates. SEA has long-standing partnerships with the Economic Departments at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, and a tradition of co-hosting functions.
Membership fees are $35/year which provides full affiliation to CABE with access to CABE services. Membership is available for purchase through the CABE website.
