Working together to strengthen communities


About Quint

About Quint

Quint Development Corporation is a unique not-for-profit organization, focused on creating economic opportunities that help to strengthen communities and improve social conditions for Saskatoon residents.

The corporation was conceived by area residents with support from civic and provincial governments, and Saskatoon businesses. The goal is to create opportunities for stable housing, jobs, and economic development in Saskatoon's west-side core neighbourhoods.

Mission Statement

To strengthen the economic and social well-being of Saskatoon's five core neighbourhoods through a community economic development approach.

Our Vision

We see citizens who are caring and self-reliant, residing in safe and stable communities where all citizens can participate. We see the community initiating and supporting social, economic, cultural, and recreational opportunities for all.

Community Economic Development Philosophy

Quint works in a holistic way, integrating economic, social, and environmental development and always aiming to strengthen communities. We work with a wide variety of partners in business, government and the community in order to create jobs and offer training and housing for community members. We strive for inclusive economic development and we work in a manner that is in keeping with the community’s priorities, culture, and values.
