Saskatchewan's economy is in great shape due to the increasing percentage of building permits.

Year-over-year building permits jumped 13.2 per cent (seasonally adjusted) in March 2017, the highest percentage increase among the provinces, and well ahead of the 1.5 per cent posted nationally.

“Building permits are one of the best indicators for a growing economy,” Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Saskatchewan leading the provinces in percentage growth shows that our economy remains strong and resilient.”

Building permits tallied up $151.2 in March 2017, which improved from the 2016 total $133.6 million. That is an increase of $17.6 million which is considered to be very impressive especially since six other provinces had numbers decreased from this year.

The town of Kindersley has started discussing the Economic Incentive Tax Exemption Bylaw which would offer tax exemptions for companies considering construction in Kindersley. The long term strategy is to improve the downtown area of Kindersley, as well as build more residential and industrial buildings in the town.
