This is good news for the city as these should be some good paying jobs. I believe the staff currently have offices spread out through the city with some people allowed to work out of home offices. To me It would make sense to have the majority working out of one space. Now with this supposed to be a money saving venture I would highly doubt a new office will be built to accommodate this. Maybe taking up residence in an older building like say the potashcorp office if that happens to be vacant after their merge and possible move to fancy new digs?

With 34,000 employees, the head office will need to be pretty large.

Reiter said the new health authority will have between 300 and 400 jobs headquartered in Saskatoon.

When they say 34,000 that must include all personnel like doctors, nurses etc. 300-400 people is still a good amount of office people.

1% of employees is a very small head office for any organization. This tells me they will be leaving many functions such as much of HR in the regions.

Maybe franchising is paying off for them and they are looking to expand their foot print.
Has it been confirmed that there will be a Popeyes in Rosewood?

I thought the Health Region had one or two floor in Saskatoon Square at 4th and 22nd?

They've signed deals in both Kensington and Brighton. Not sure about Rosewood.

Lee Genier looks to bring professional soccer to Saskatchewan

By Ryan Flaherty and David Giles
Global News


Former Saskatchewan Rush president Lee Genier is in Saskatoon to explore the possibility of bringing professional soccer to Saskatchewan.

The Rush are a huge success story in Saskatoon and across the province and now Genier, who helped bring pro lacrosse to the Prairies, is hoping to do the same thing with the world’s most popular sport.

The fledgling Canadian Premier League (CPL) was officially ratified on May 6 by Canada Soccer and has received interest from ten potential franchisees, including Genier’s group.

Interesting stuff. Looks like Saskatoon could see construction of an expandable 8,500 seat stadium to accommodate the team -- if the team locates here.

Doesn't Griffiths Stadium at Uni hold over 10,000? Or would that create a scheduling conflict with Uni sports and the potential pro soccer?

It can hold 10,000 but that's only for special events.

I know soccer isnt my thing but its these sort of options that help make places more attractive places to live and do business. As long as ticket prices are not sky high. I dont think either Saskatoon or Regina would support soccor at the same prices as the Rush. That is just my opinion though but I am bias like I said.

I saw Brutopian's post on this in the Saskatoon Roads & Infrastructure thread, which doesn't seem to get as much action as this thread does so I thought it was worthwhile to pass it on for more eyes to see. Direct link to the website is here: http://www.saskatchewan.ca/governmen...y-consultation

By David Giles, Senior Web Producer, Global News

The Saskatchewan government is looking for feedback on some of the recommended routes for the proposed Saskatoon Freeway.

A new online forum is outlining the rationale for the routes that were selected.

Landowners, project stakeholders and the public are now being asked to provide feedback to the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure team.

The online forum runs until May 26, 2017.
