Global Business and Economics Review (GBER), Vol. 12, No. 1/2, 2010


Abstract: While gaming operations are on the rise in Canada, the actual impact of gaming revenues on the economic development of Canadian First Nations is an area of research that is currently lacking. The primary objective of this paper is to develop a research agenda for the investigation of the impact of the gaming industry on the economic development of Saskatchewan's First Nations. A secondary objective of this paper is to explore the maintenance and strengthening of Indigenous cultures through the strategic investment of revenues obtained from gaming activities. If culture and tradition do indeed play a 'critical role' in the pursuit of economic wealth by Indigenous populations, our paper examines the importance of cultural development, as indicated by the investments made to specific sectors by Saskatchewan bands through the money distributed by First Nations Trust, as First Nations pursue development through economic diversification and entrepreneurship.
