The Annual CFA Society Saskatchewan Dinner is the premier event of the year, bringing together professionals from the local financial management and business community.

 

The two hour virtual event will feature insightful speakers and discussion, with event topics focusing on:

  • Saskatchewan’s unique opportunity to lead in tomorrow’s reduced carbon economy.
  • Unlocking and leveraging Saskatchewan’s stranded assets and participating in carbon trade.
  • Taking advantage of the new climate economy (versus fighting it) in order to transition/evolve and participate in it for benefit of Province, Canada and, arguably, the World.

 

Join us virtually on February 25th for an engaging discussion on the future of energy

and unlocking Saskatchewan's stranded assets.
