Our Strategy

At SSEP, we connect people, ideas, resources and tools across the globe.

Organized in 2020 by the RM of Coalfields No. 4, RM of Estevan No. 5, and the Town of Bienfait, SSEP is a newly established collaborative partnership. We are exploring economic opportunities, developing priorities for the region and  networking with government, industry and community partners.

Moving forward, SSEP aims to expand the partnership and collaborate with more municipalities in the region — the stronger the partnership, the greater the vision.
